  • There is a Slight Risk of excessive rainfall over parts of Southern California today and Thursday
  • Heavy snow for mountains of Southern California
  • Well above normal temperatures for the central states

A cold front will approach southern California later today with an
expanding area of rain and higher elevation snow. Embedded convection may
enhance rainfall rates right along the coast from Santa Barbara through
Los Angeles into San Diego. Snowfall over a foot is possible in the
mountains in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. The precipitation will
spread across the Colorado River on Thursday into the lower deserts of
Arizona but with lower amounts toward the Phoenix and Tucson areas. Some
modest snowfall is likely for northern Arizona along the Mogollon Rim.

The rest of the lower 48 will see relatively dry and mild conditions with
temperatures near normal along the New England coast but up to 25 degrees
above normal in the mid-Mississippi Valley into the Great Lakes/Midwest.
Some record highs are possible today and tomorrow. A frontal boundary will
waver over the Central Plains through the Corn Belt and Great Lakes today
and will lift northward on Thursday, spreading generally light
precipitation (rain along the boundary, mix to the north, snow to the
northwest) toward the east-northeast. Below normal temperatures are
forecast for much of the West and especially the Southwest due to the
incoming front. Expect temperatures only in the mid 50s to low 60s for
southern California and the lower deserts of Arizona.


A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for areas mainly north of Madison and Milwaukee until 9 AM CST this morning. Look for visibility values of 1/4 mile or less at times in these areas. Additionally, roads may be slick in spots due to below freezing air and road temperatures. Patchy fog will continue elsewhere. Holiday travelers should make sure to slow down if encountering any dense fog, use low beam headlights, and allow for extra distance between vehicles. Drive carefully!
It will be quite mild for Christmas today, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. Temperatures may even reach the mid-50s toward the Wisconsin/Illinois border. Fog this morning should dissipate by mid to late morning, with more fog possible tonight. The mild weather will continue Thursday, with record high temperatures possible. Colder conditions Friday will be followed by a wet weekend, with mainly rain expected across southern Wisconsin.
