Christmas was mild with our high at 68, but the westerly wind was breezy.
TODAY: Mostly cloudy with a lighter wind changing to the southeast 5-10mph. Temperatures will be above average, but a little cooler nearing 61.
INCREASING RAIN CHANCES: Upper level low off the coast of California will move across northern Mexico today. Rain and snow will spread across the 4-corners region, then our chance for rain will begin overnight through early Saturday. Temperatures stay above freezing so precipitation type will stay liquid. Might have a line of storms ahead of the cold front late Friday and early Saturday before clearing out.
This is a good set up for rain with totals a third of an inch to half an inch possible with higher amounts from storms. Potential totals seen below:
EXTENDED: This system also will leave us with a stronger wind both Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will be dropping below the average of 53° through the weekend and the final days of 2019. More sunshine into next week with our next storm system on our doorsteps, for now it looks to bring more clouds and keeping the temperatures chilly.
Have a great Thursday! Robert will fill in for Matt tonight on the News at Nine.
