Happy Winter! We hit the solstice at 6:12am EST; one major thing means for you, longer days. We’ve got a windy, chilly but sunny day ahead. Highs this afternoon won’t make it out of the mid and upper 50s despite the abundant sun. A swift northwest wind will keep pumping in the cold air at 10-15mph. Tonight, the chill sets in as the wind relaxes; lows fall to the upper 20s and low 30s away from the coast. A freeze warning is in effect for everyone away from beaches through Saturday morning. Temperatures will be at or below freezing for 4 or more hours making a light freeze possible, even close to cities. Plants are most at risk in this type of cold. High pressure takes control for the weekend leading to sunny but cool afternoons in the low 60s and cold nights with lows in the 20s. A freeze warning will likely be issued for Saturday night and Sunday morning. Guidance points to a warming trend Christmas Eve with more showers and storms possible Christmas day. In terms of storminess, stay tuned, we’ll have a better handle on it after the weekend. However, I will say it’s time to start thinking about a plan B “what if it rains?”

Have a great weekend!
