Once the front is east Saturday night, much chillier air pours in for Christmas Eve. High temperatures stay cold, with a high of 35 degrees. Low around 35. South southwest wind 7 to 14 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 25 miles per hour. Highs will reach the mid-50s with mostly sunny conditions. "While this is subject to change (and likely will) IF I had to put a number to how much snow we could see, I would say 2" would be the absolute max but most spots would see less than 1". Saturday night looks cloudy, with scattered showers and lows in the 40s. It's the warmest day we've seen since December 6th, nearly two weeks ago, but unfortunately it's not going to last.

"Temperatures generally not falling below eight to 11 degrees in light to moderate southwesterly breezes". High temperatures Wednesday will be in the middle to upper 60s. There are signs though as we head into next weekend that we'll tap into some moisture, which could bring us our first measurable snow of the season by Sunday.

"Christmas Day is looking quite cold", Packingham said, noting people with pets will want to take precautions.

John Terry Reveals His Toughest Opponent In His Entire Career
Terry ended his 19-year spell with Chelsea at the end of last season and opted to join Villa during the summer transfer window. I think Chelsea have found a player who can have the same career as some of the best defenders here'.


MONDAY: Early light snow/rain, then mostly cloudy, milder with highs around 40.

A low pressure system will be moving through the Deep South, this will increase the clouds for us. The better chance for rain will be Tuesday as a potent and fast-moving storm system zips through the region. Heading into the 3 day holiday weekend highs will be in the 20s and 30s with a chance of snow on Saturday through early Sunday morning. Where these two features are will determine if we even see cold air for Christmas Day.

According to national forecaster Met Eireann, tonight will be a "mild, cloudy night with patches of rain, drizzle and fog and locally poor visibility". Expect temperatures in the low to mid-30s by mid-afternoon.
