High yesterday reached 37-45 (normal is 38-43) followed by lows this morning at 25-33.

As of 1:30 p.m., temperatures are 32-40 over the viewing area with partly to cloudy skies.  Lows this morning ran 22-32, depending on how much clearing you saw overnight.

As for thie evening-tonight, it looks mostly cloudy with a few lake effect snow flurries & lows 27-31.

Tomorrow looks partly to mostly cloudy/cloudy with highs 36-43 & a few lake effect snow flurries & sprinkles with northwest wind 5-10 mph.

After 26-31 Monday night, partly to mostly cloudy skies Tuesday are likely with winds turning to the south-southwest at 10-20 mph & highs 43-49.

It looks warmer still on Wednesday with partly cloudy skies & highs 47-54 after 25-30 in the morning.

Thursday looks mostly sunny & mild with highs 51-56 after morning lows 28-35.  There does not look to be too much wind Thursday with south-southwest winds 5-10 mph. 

Friday will turn windy with partly cloudy skies & highs 54-60. 

It appears rain will overspread the area Friday night with even a couple of isolated t'storms with temperatures in the 50-55 range.  Winds will be strong from the south-southwest at 20-35 mph.

Totals rainfall of 0.75-1.25" is possible.

Some severe weather is possible Missouri to the Lower Mississippi Valley & Gulf Coast.

Rain exits Saturday morning, followed by brief dry slot with lack of any rain & even a bit of sun then falling temperatures with west to northwest winds up to 45 mph.  Some scattered rain to rain/snow to snow showers will pivot into the area behind the rainfall & dry slot as temperatures fall quickly to the 30s.

Sunday looks colder & windy with mostly cloudy skies & a few flurries with highs 34-39.

Next Monday looks partly cloudy & breezy with highs 37-43 after 25-30 in the morning.

Big warm-up with lots of wind, more rain follows in the December 16-17 period.  It may end as some snow showers.

Winds may gust +45 mph at times on the back side of the system.

Some light rain to rain & snow is possible around December 20

Windy Christmas system is tracking more to the south & looks to pivot from the Plains to Great Lakes.

Rain is likely here, tapering around Christmas.

Hopefully there is a miracle & it tracks more to the south & brings snow, but that still does not look to be the case.

It looks mild to warm right now, still.

Looks like a white Christmas Colorado to Wisconsin to northern Michigan.

You can see after Christmas through the first week of January, trend continues for mild & wet here.

I do see more in the way of cold coming in after the first week of January with increasing potential of snow & ice mid to late month.  This shold be interspersed with bursts of warmth, leading to rather short duration of snow or ice on the ground.

Overall January will be warmer than normal & wetter than normal, but snow may end up closer to normal (6-12" total for the month).
