Christmas Eve will be much sunnier in the morning than yesterday with highs getting near 50. It will also be dry today however rain does move in overnight with increasing clouds expected in the afternoon. Lows tonight will drop into the low-40s to high-30s.

Christmas morning will be cold and wet. Numerous showers are expected through the morning. They become more scattered in the afternoon then clear out by sunset. Rain totals will be low wih valley rain topping of near a quarter inch and only 1-3 inches of snow with low snow levels of 2,000 to 3,000 feet. High temperatures also take a dip into the mid-40s in the Valley. You'll need the umbrella and the jacket on Chrsitmas Day if you aren't staying indoors.

On Thursday the sunshine returns, the rain leaves us and the high temperatures warm back into the mid-50s as a ridge of high pressure settles in. Friday and Saturday see more sunshine with high temperatures staying steady and about average for this time of year.

The next weather system moves in on Sunday dropping high temperatures in the upper-40s with the chances for more Valley showers and mountain snow. Snow levels start at 3,000 feet Sunday morning then rise to 5,000 feet by Sunday afternoon. The snow and rain totals are epected to be low as the weather system moving in will not have much moisture with it and leaves the area quickly by Monday. Monday will be partly cloudy with highs in the mid-50s.
