Today is the Winter Solstice. This day marks the start of astronomical winter. It will feel more like fall as highs soar to near 70°. There will be a light southwest wind under a mostly sunny sky.

It will be a cold night. Temperatures will fall into the middle 30’s under mostly clear skies. There will be a light south wind.

Wednesday will be very mild with highs around 10° above average. Most areas will reach the upper 60’s to near 70°. With light winds and bright sunshine, it will be very pleasant.

Southwest winds will pick up Thursday. This along with bright sunshine will help temperatures warm to the upper 70’s to near 80°. That is around 20° above average.

Christmas Eve is on Friday. It will be a warm and gusty day. Highs will reach the middle 80’s with mostly sunny skies. Fire weather will be a concern. This is because of the gusty winds, dry air in place, and our drought.

Temperatures will be a couple of degrees cooler Christmas Day. I am still forecasting temperatures to be in the 80’s. That is well above average. It will be breezy.

Temperatures will stay warm on Sunday and Monday as dry weather settles in.
