Our stagnant weather pattern will continue through the weekend. Skies will be mostly cloudy overnight with a slight chance for a flurry. Low temperatures will fall to the lower to middle 20s by morning.
Saturday will be mostly cloudy with a chance for a little drizzle or a few flurries. High temperatures will be in the lower to middle 30s. Sunday will be mostly cloudy and breezy with a better chance for drizzle and flurries with high temperatures reaching the middle 30s. Some fog is possible on Saturday night, and some patchy freezing drizzle is possible Saturday and Sunday nights when temperatures fall below freezing.
A storm system will develop across the Midwest from Monday into Tuesday and Christmas Eve Wednesday. Monday will be cloudy and breezy with light rain and snow developing by afternoon. High temperatures will reach the middle to upper 30s. Tuesday will be cloudy with snow showers, possibly mixed at times with rain. High temperatures will be in the middle 30s.
As the low pressure system over Wisconsin moves to the east it will merge with another system moving up the Atlantic coast, which will cause the merged system to stall over the northeast and intensify. That will result in cloudy and windy conditions to develop from Tuesday night into Christmas Eve. Precipitation will change to light snow on Tuesday night, with snow showers continuing into Christmas Eve Wednesday; there could be some minor snow accumulations at that time. Christmas Day will be mostly cloudy and breezy with lingering flurries ending during the morning. High temperatures will be near 30 degrees for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
There is a chance for snow to redevelop on Friday as another system moves through the area. It will be mostly cloudy and breezy with highs near 30 degrees. After that system passes, next Saturday will be variably cloudy, breezy, and colder with a chance for flurries, while Sunday will be partly sunny. High temperatures will be seasonably cold, topping out in the middle 20s.
