Rainy Wednesday with Remarkable Warmth Christmas Eve

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

We’ve seen rain off and on throughout the morning and into the afternoon. The rain will finally come to an end by dinner this evening. When we tally up the rain totals, we’ll see up to .5” of rain from today’s showers.

High pressure moves in tonight for some partial clearing. This should aide in developing areas of fog for tomorrow morning's commute. We will see temperatures fall to the low 40s overnight under mostly cloudy conditions.

Fog will give way to more clouds tomorrow as a second round of rain pushes in tomorrow afternoon through early Thursday morning. We may even hear a rumble of thunder as some evening showers move through. Despite the rain and clouds, we will be in to the mid 50s tomorrow afternoon’s high temperature.

As this system move out on Thursday, it will be remarkably warm for Santa arrival on Christmas Eve. Temperatures will be well in to the 60s by the afternoon and remain in the 60s well in to the evening..  There may be some showers on Christmas Eve morning but most of the day will be dry with some sunshine working in. There is a strong chance we could not only beat the current record high for Dec 24 (currently 58°), but it’s likely we will crush it by 6 to 10 degrees.

Due to the strong warming on Christmas Eve, there is a chance we could beat the record high on Christmas Day as well. The current record is 63, and it’s possible we could reach that around midnight on Christmas Day. As far as the Christmas itself, it is looking beautiful will sun and more warmth. Temperatures will reach close to 60! It will turn more seasonable as we push into the weekend but will still stay above normal with temps in the 40s.
