Technical Forecast Discussion

Short term (Sunday 12/23 through 12/25)

Clouds will slowly increase through Sunday as an upper level trough moves through. Models show the trough having some strength to it, but most of its moisture to be removed. High pressure moves in downstream of the ridge on Monday clearing up clouds from the previous day. Despite the passing of a cold front late Sunday, little to no CAA will be prevalent as upper level ridging will make its way in late Monday. Likely leading to a clear and comfortable Christmas Day.

Long term (Wednesday 12/26 through Saturday 12/29)

Upper level ridging and associated high pressure move through on Wednesday, leading to cloud clearing and the beginning of WAA. Upper level troughing over the central US will create a strong low pressure system. The shrinking warm front will create chances for rain showers Thursday evening as the frontal boundary moves in. The area will be in warm sector for a short period of time on Friday which will give a brief break from precipitation and a strong surge of WAA as highs look to be in the low 60s. The cold front of the low pressure system looks to push through late afternoon on Friday before dry air moves in ahead high pressure on Saturday.
