In the meantime, we enjoyed another day with near-record highs in the mid to upper 60s. Tomorrow will feature more unseasonable late December warmth. Highs will be within a few degrees of the record once again. Our run of very warm days will then grind to a halt.
Post-Christmas travelers are bracing for heavy, blowing snow; icy conditions; and strong storms across the middle of the country today. The mighty storm system pushes east tomorrow. Showers will arrive late tonight and continue through Sunday night with heavy rain and a few storms. A Flood Watch has been issued for parts of central Kentucky ahead of widespread heavy rain tomorrow. 1" to 3" of rain will be possible beginning late tonight through Monday morning. Localized flooding issues may arise. Showers will wind down Monday morning and it will start turning chillier. By New Year's Eve temperatures will be back to "normal" with highs in the lower 40s.
