Soggy and wintry weather is on the way toward the end of the work week- if you have anything to wrap up outside (yard work, hanging Christmas lights, buttoning up the house for winter, etc.) now is the time to get it done! Tuesday will end up mostly to partly cloudy with above average highs around 60 degrees! After a mostly cloudy night with isolated showers and lows in the upper 40s a warm front will lift across the Commonwealth Wednesday. This will push highs to the mid to upper 60s but will also spread more clouds and even a few morning to early afternoon showers into the area.
The major change hits later in the week. Waves of moderate to heavy rain will blow in Thursday through Friday- we may need to watch for localized flooding issues toward the end of the rain with a few inches possible. As the temperature drops into the 40s and 30s late this work week we could see it wrap up as a wintry mix (sleet & snow) Friday afternoon into Friday night. A few lingering snow showers and highs around freezing will reminds us that it is December after all... another chance for rain to snow will kick in Sunday as yet another cold front approaches late in the weekend.
