Today we saw another cloudy day. A thick deck of clouds has been pretty persistent over the last few days and today was no exception. We haven’t seen the sunshine for several days this month.
Take a look at this video The National Weather Service in Wilmington put together click here. It really shows the cloudy days all this month.
Despite the clouds we saw temperatures today into the 30′s.
Tomorrow is the first day of winter. The winter solstice is when the sun’s rays are directed at the Tropic of Capricorn. This means it’s the first day of winter for us but the first day of summer in the Southern Hemisphere.
There’s a chance we may see a few peeks of sun for the first day of winter. If we do it’s going to be short lived…we’re tracking a storm system that will bring more clouds next week.
Temperatures begin to warm up Monday with highs in the middle 40′s. We’ll see more clouds, breezy southwest winds and a chance for a few showers later in the afternoon and evening.
Looking ahead to Christmas: There’s a storm system that will form and strengthen over the Great Lakes. Tuesday we’ll be warm with highs in the lower 50′s and rain likely. By Wednesday we’ll see rain changing to snow as colder air moves into the area. Winds begin to pick up out of the west and northwest. There’s a chance for a few flurries on Thursday too.
While I know many people are wondering if we’re going to see a White Christmas I want to point out we’re not going to see a lot of accumulating snow from this system. We WILL see VERY windy conditions. This means what snow that does fall may blow and drift.
This is the way it looks like right now but we’ll continue to monitor it all week long for you. We’ll have updates on-air and online at wdtn.com
