National Weather Outlook

National Weather Discussion

  • Unsettled conditions will continue for the West Coast…
  • Mild temperatures for the mid-Mississippi Valley on Christmas Eve/Day…

A frontal system will continue to push through the interior West and
Southwest, through the Great Basin and Four Corners region on Tuesday.
Though the front is expected to weaken by Wednesday, lingering snow
showers will persist for the Rockies. Lower elevation rainfall may exceed
a quarter to half an inch over portions of Arizona, which may lead to
localized flooding. Heavier amounts are likely in the favored terrain
areas (which will fall as snow with levels lowering to about 5000-6000ft).

The rest of the lower 48 will see relatively dry and mild conditions as
the Southeast system departs the coast. A frontal boundary will waver over
the central Plains through the Corn Belt and Great Lakes into the
Mid-Atlantic. Southerly flow to the south of the boundary will bring well
above normal temperatures to the areas along I-70 between western Kansas
to the Appalachians. Record highs are possible on Christmas Day around St.
Louis in the lower 60s. Below normal temperatures are forecast for much of
the West behind the cold front, only in the upper 50s and low 60s for
southern California and the lower deserts of Arizona.

Milwaukee

If you plan on traveling across the area early this morning, be alert for areas of dense fog. It may produce patchy frost on a few roads, making them slippery. Slow down and allow extra time to reach your destination.
The remainder of the week still looks mild and dry. A storm system moving into the region will bring rain on Saturday, possibly changing over to snow later in the weekend.
Christmas Day Statistics for Milwaukee and Madison. Christmas Day 2019 is looking mild with a small chance for light rain.

Chicago

Areas of dense fog have developed overnight, resulting in greatly reduced visibilities. Areas west and south of Chicago have seen temperatures fall to or slightly below freeing, and dense freezing fog is possible and may cause some slippery spots in those areas. Exercise caution if heading out this morning. Dense fog advisories are in effect through mid-morning for much of the area, with improvement expected by that time.
The next several days will continue to feature unseasonably mild conditions with high temperatures mostly in the upper 40s and 50s! Unless cloud cover keeps temperatures cooler than forecast, this year’s Christmas will be one of the top 10 warmest for Chicago and Rockford!

Indianapolis

High pressure will keep dry and quiet weather over central Indiana through the holiday week. Temperatures will be above normal with varying amounts of cloud cover. Dense fog will be possible this morning, especially north.
Indianapolis Radar

Michiana

Dense fog continues to expand in coverage across the area this morning. A freezing fog advisory has been issued for areas highlighted in the graphic until 10 AM EST. Locations to the north currently not in the advisory, may also experience some patchy dense fog this morning. The combination of the dense fog and temperatures below freezing may result in a few slick spots on roadways this morning, particularly across bridges and overpasses. The fog should dissipate late this morning. Motorists should exercise caution this morning, and be prepared for rapidly varying visibilities.
Areas of fog can expected this morning, with the greater coverage generally along and south of the Route 30 corridor. Visibilities across these locations will likely drop to less than one quarter of a mile at times through mid morning. With temperatures below freezing, the fog may result in a few slick spots on roadways this morning. Motorists should be prepared for limited visibilities this morning. Otherwise, dry and mild weather will persist. The next chance of rain arrives for the weekend.
