Highs near 50 on this Thursday as a cold front will sweep through the area. Expect clouds to follow the front, so a partly cloudy day for the Big Country followed by a mostly cloudy night with lows in the upper 20's.
Much colder for Friday with highs only in the upper 30's with abundant cloud cover. There's a slight chance for snow flurries by Friday night.
A rain/snow mix is possible on Saturday as energy from an upper level low moves across the area. Accumulations near one inch are possible. A lot depends on the timing and moisture content of the atmosphere. Temperatures in the upper 20's will be cold enough to sustain snow heading into the early portion of the day on Saturday , but gradual warming during the day to the lower 40's would cause a switch from snow to rain. The bulk of the energy will move off to our East by Saturday night, and precipitation will dwindle from West to East.
Clearing and warmer for Christmas Day. Expect highs near 50.
A warming trend will take over for the first half of next week. We'll see mostly clear skies through the middle portion of the week with temperatures climbing to near 60 degrees.
