MILD AIR HEADS IN JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS… AN UNSETTLED WEEKEND SEEMS LIKELY

The bitter cold air mass will be moving off the coast just in time for Christmas. As the big high pressure area moves out to sea, a southerly wind will bring the mild air into Hampton Roads. There could be a light shower on Christmas Eve but no significant rainfall is expected by forecasters. Some showers may move in on Christmas Day but heavy rain is not likely. Is more cold air headed our way? For the foreseeable future, temperatures should be on the mild side for the most part. As the weekend approaches, a frontal system may bring us some wet weather. Air temperatures across Canada are still very cold, but with the jet stream not coming straight down from Cananda here in the east, the cold air won’t be able to head this far south. Therefore, we should be okay for a while. Once the upper-level winds change direction, the cold will return. Enjoy the mild weather while it lasts. Happy holidays, everyone and drive safe.
