We have sunshine today and tomorrow and a few more clouds by Thursday.

Friday, we see our next chance of rain in the evening for Santa’s travels but also a warmup with highs back in the low 50s and the warmest day of the week looking to be Christmas with highs in the mid to upper 50s. The warmest Christmas on record was 67 degrees back in 1895.

The next couple of days will be great to go get a car wash before rain showers arrives Christmas Eve. The wettest Christmas on record was 1.07″ back in 1944 but we won’t see that much rain in one day for this Christmas.
