We couldn't have asked for nicer weather the last several days with 70s in the beginning of December.
Sunday we topped out at 71° (record 75°), and today it was 75° (record 79°).
However, an approaching cold front will bring showers and a few t'showers on Tuesday.
A few scattered morning showers may develop, as moisture climbs northward through the Mississippi Valley (as seen by the second graphic).
The front will approach during the afternoon and evening hours with a line of showers and t'showers. No severe weather is expected, but there should be some embedded thunderstorms in the line.
On Wednesday, the cooler air arrives, but still leaves temperatures above normal for this time of the year with highs in the low 60s.
The extended forecast calls for another mild weekend but this time there will be an increase in scattered t'shower chances, with the higher chances on Saturday.
The longer range models differ on the timing and orientation of the following cold front next week. The ECMWF shoots it through here by Monday, the GFS holds it back until Tuesday with low pressure developing along it which could produce severe weather.
We still will have to wait for a few more model runs to sort out the situation for early next week.
