Sneak peak to Christmas Day - very wet December

So much excitement with just 9 days to go before Christmas. It's a busy time of the year with last minute shopping, holiday parties, etc. Seems like we are all going many different directions. While a white Christmas would make a lot of you happy, it isn't looking very likely this year. So travel weather through Christmas week shouldn't be too bad. Here's a look at what's ahead into the weekend and next week:

Today - snow flurries - no accumulation - much colder air
Friday - cold morning - less cold in the afternoon with southwest winds
Saturday/Sunday - warmer with highs int he 50s
Monday - Thursday - mainly 40s and 50s around the state - no rain or snow
Christmas Day - Storm developing just west of Kansas. At this time, doesn't look major, but could bring a rain/snow chance right after Christmas.

It should turn colder on Christmas Day or the day after, but any blasts of cold weather from Canada will likely be very brief.

Look at Dodge City so far in the month of December. Now the 6th wettest December on record. Wichita is also having it's 9th wettest year on record with all of the big rains we've had in the last few months. And we are still on track to continue having wet weather through the rest of the winter season.
