Chilly tomorrow before a warmer weekend

Naughty or Nice Forecast

Christmas is just 20 days away, so it's a good time to evaluate the forecast on whether it's naughty or nice. Also, you can be sure the Stormtracker 18 Weather Team checks it twice each shift.

For tomorrow, while it will be colder than we've been the past couple days, the reality is the temperatures won't be far from average. We'll have some clouds this evening before partial clearing late tonight. Lows will fall into the low to mid teens, with some spots that get a mostly clear sky most of the night could fall into the single digits. It will feel colder due to the breeze of just 5-10 mph putting morning wind chills in the 5-10 degree range and as high as the mid 20s by afternoon.

Still, there will be plenty of sunshine and that makes for an overall nice day for this time of year, though it could be better.

Temperatures warm up for the weekend as our highs will be back into the mid to upper 30s, though there will be more cloud cover.

What's not nice is the weather to come next week. While there isn't any major snow storms in the forecast, Monday's system could bring a couple inches of fluffy snow as the wind picks up and the temperatures begin to fall.

By Tuesday morning some spots will be near or below zero, and it's likely it'll feel that way with the wind chill factored in. Tuesday and Wednesday have highs only in the single digits with lows falling well below zero each night.
