Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

2015 has been an interesting weather year, so why not end it with a week of interesting weather?

It looks like we are going to go from cloudy, windy and cold on Monday to cloudy, windy and very warm on Tuesday.

A warm front will cross the region this evening. With it, expect scattered showers through the overnight hours. It will be significantly warmer when you wake up tomorrow morning than when you go to bed tonight.

And despite plenty of cloud cover, we will likely break temperature records on Tuesday. Expect high temperatures in the upper 70s and the lower 80s.

But after that the temperature trend is down. A cold front will cross the region on Wednesday, sparking showers and possibly thunderstorms. Expect high temperatures in the mid 60s.

Showers and thunderstorms are also possible for New Year’s Eve on Thursday, with high temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Chillier weather will be moving in as we ring in the new year at midnight. Expect temperatures in the upper 40s to lower 50s under mostly cloudy skies.

The first day of 2016 will bring us high temperatures in the lower 50s with a mixture of clouds and sunshine. Our rain chances stand at 20%.

The first weekend of 2016 will be sunny and cold with high temperatures in the upper 40s and the lower 50s. That is much closer to normal.
