How will our next cold front impact the Christmas forecast?

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Sunny and calm weather will dominate the forecast for the next few days before much more rain arrives Wednesday night with our next cold front. How will this impact our Christmas forecast? Let’s find out! First things first, tonight will be chilly with lows in the low 40s. An isolated shower or two is possible, but most will stay dry. Patchy fog will also develop, so keep that in mind for your Monday morning commute!

Monday afternoon through sunset Wednesday is still looking dry and mostly sunny with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Then, yet another cold front will arrive Wednesday night, bringing another round of rain to the entire region. Severe weather is not anticipated. Neither is snow, though we are watching for the possibilities of a few flurries on the back side of this system. Chances are low this would happen.

Models still disagree on the timing of this front. Right now it looks like most of us would be dry Thursday evening (Christmas Eve evening), but we’ll keep the low chance of a few showers there.

Following that cold front, models remain in good agreement on a very cold shot of air. Temperatures will bottom out below freezing by Christmas morning, then stay in the 40s Christmas afternoon. It will be a great holiday to cozy up by the fire in your new Christmas sweater!
