First the good news:. Milder weather is on the way for most, if not all of this week, as winds swing to the south ahead of the next system. Even better, the models have backed off the really frigid Arctic outbreak for Christmas.
Still, we are likely to see just about every kind of weather possible this time of year over the coming 10 days. This week will start on the sunny, seasonably cool side, with gradually increasing clouds and milder temperatures, reaching the 70s by Thursday and Friday.
