Wednesday, December 6 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Wednesday! Temperatures are cool this morning, but are actually seasonal for this time of year. Rain chances won’t begin to increase until after sunrise, with showers forming from west to east through the morning. The bulk of the rain will be south of I-20, but all areas could see some showers as we head throughout the day today. Rain won’t be heavy, but they will not help on an overall dreary day, with overcast skies and temperatures only getting up to 48 degrees. Cloudy skies and scattered showers will continue through the overnight hours with lows around 37. Another dreary day is in store for Thursday with a chance of some rain showers and overcast skies with highs around 50.

The system bringing us some rain for Wednesday and Thursday will exit by late Thursday night into Friday morning, so a lingering shower may be possible in our area, especially in our southern parts. This will need some close monitoring, as temperatures could drop near the freezing mark by the time the rain leaves, leaving the possibility of some light wintry precipitation if the air can hold moisture at such cold temperatures. But I do think this threat will stay to the south and east of our area so I’m still going to say a stray shower is possible in southern parts of our area, but we’ll of course keep a close eye on this. We dry out for the weekend and to start next week. The coldest mornings will be with us Saturday and Sunday with lows in the middle-20s, but highs will climb into the middle-50’s by Monday, before we have small cooldown by Tuesday.
