Kicking off the week of festivities with sunshine

Nova Forecast

Lows Sunday morning will be in the 20's, but afternoon temps will be in the 40's and 50's.

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!

Here is a look at your 7-day forecast:

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