12/24 – Rob Knight’s “Very Cold” Christmas Eve Afternoon Forecast

Biggest concerns will be strong winds and cold temperatures. Low clouds should diminish from NW-SE this afternoon. After the initial drop in temperatures behind the front, only minimal recovery expected this afternoon.

North of the interstate will likely fall below freezing but remain just above hard freeze criteria. In any case, wind chills will fall into the 20s across most of the area prior to sunrise, so it’s going to be a cold Christmas morning.

High pressure shifts eastward across the area on Christmas Day, but not quick enough to warm things up. Sunny skies Christmas Day but highs will only max out in the upper 40s and lower 50s for much of the area. Another cold night Friday night: as temperatures will fall into the upper 20s through the area. A disturbance will move across the southeast states on Sunday, but current indications are that the lack of moisture means only a brief increase in clouds before high-pressure builds across the northern Gulf of Mexico for the early part of next week.
