Reported by: Chief Meteorologist Joe Murgo

Today was another blustery day with a good deal of clouds and scattered flurries and snow showers. There will still be some flurries and snow showers around early tonight, especially near and north of I-80. Otherwise, tonight will be brisk and chilly with some clearing. Temperatures will drop to within a few degrees of 20 but may actually rise a bit toward dawn. A major warm up will start Thursday. With partial sunshine and a west-southwesterly breeze, temperatures will reach into the lower 40s in many spots. More spots will reach into the lower to middle 40s on Friday despite a good deal of clouds and some showers moving in. The mercury will not drop much Friday night and then will rise to near 50 on Saturday despite being damp and foggy. Some spots may make a run to near 60 on Sunday with showers and perhaps even a thunderstorm as a cold front approaches. Behind the front, any rain showers will change to snow showers along with a gusty wind on Monday. Temperatures will probably start in the upper 30s to near 40 but then drop through the day. Christmas Eve day will be windy and chilly with variable cloudiness and scattered flurries and snow showers. There may be a new covering of snow in places for before Christmas arrives. Otherwise, Christmas day will be partly sunny and seasonably chilly.
