The cold weather pattern vanished away today as a southwesterly breeze and some sunshine helped to push temperatures into the 40s. The sky will be mainly clear this evening, and with fairly light winds, the temperature will drop fast early tonight but it will not be as cold as recent nights. Lows will range from well down into the 20s in the deeper rural valleys to the 30s on some of the ridges where there will be a little more wind. With the temperature dropping below freezing in some locations, a few wet spots on the roadways could become icy. Remember a wet road and an icy road look identical. Friday will be breezy and mild despite more clouds and some showers developing. Highs will be within a few degrees of 50. The mercury will actually hold in the 40s Friday night with fog developing. Saturday will also be cloudy and mild with periods of rain and some areas of fog with highs in the lower 50s. The mercury may hold in the 50s Saturday night and will rise to near 60 on Sunday. There will be showers and perhaps a thunderstorm Sunday as a cold front sweeps into the region. Behind the front, temperatures will drop on Monday with any rain showers changing to snow showers. Christmas Eve day will be a cold day with variable cloudiness and scattered flurries and snow showers. This means some spots may have a new whitening of the ground before a partly sunny and seasonably chilly Christmas Day.
