Sunny skies with highs 10 degrees above the average

I270 Forecast

There will be many 50 degree weather days coming this week.

We were able to see a good bit of sunshine Saturday afternoon with a full day of sun to come on Sunday. Warm air will continue to influence our weather as high-pressure continues to bring southerly flow. This surge of heat will cause temperatures to be 5-15 degrees above the average for this time of year.

High pressure will also draw in moisture from the south, which will bring a few clouds into the region Christmas Day. Increasing clouds will continue throughout the latter part of the week with a slight chance of rain next Friday and Saturday. Highs will continue to be above the average.

The winter solstice occurs Saturday night at 11:19 EST, but temperatures during this festive week will be far from what we expect winter to bring. While we may remain above average for a week or so, below-average temperatures will be just around the corner. Stay tuned!

Saturday night: Mostly clear with lows in the mid to upper 20’s. Winds will be calm.
