Christmas is upon us and most of the area is white. Some of the snow might melt today, but more is on the way.

Today: Cloudy, foggy, and mild. Patchy freezing drizzle possible in the morning with just some drizzle or light rain showers in the afternoon.

High: 40 Wind: SE 10-15 to West late

Tonight (Christmas Eve): Gradually becoming partly cloudy.

Low: 25 Wind: NW around 10

Saturday (Christmas Day): Partly cloudy in the morning, then becoming mostly cloudy.

High: 33 Wind: North 5-10

Watch out for fog this morning. It might be a little thick in some areas. A DENSE FOG ADVISORY is in effect for Shawano, Langlade, Menominee, Forest, and Florence counties until mid-morning. Otherwise, we will have cloudy skies and patchy light rain or drizzle developing later in the morning through early afternoon. The good news is that most of the area should be above freezing before the precipitation begins. There could be a few icy spots on area roadways but it should not be widespread. Highs will rise up to around 40 this afternoon with winds out of the southeast at 10 to 15 mph.

The clouds will break up a bit later tonight and we should see some sun at times during the morning hours of Christmas Day. It will be a nice Winter day tomorrow with highs in the low to mid 30s. More clouds will develop in the afternoon and those clouds could produce some flurries or a little dusting of snow Saturday night.

A strong storm system moving in from the west on Sunday will increase the clouds once again and bring a good chance of snow in the evening. From Sunday evening through Monday morning, it looks like 3 to 5 inches could accumulate, so the Monday morning commute could be a little slippery. Highs on Sunday will be around 30 and then rise into the low 30s Monday afternoon as the clouds break up a bit.

Another vigorous trough of low pressure will move through the area late Tuesday through early Wednesday. Once again there could be a few inches accumulation. Once this storm moves through, the weather will turn colder for a bit. Highs on Thursday of next week might only be in the teens.

Have a super Christmas Eve! Meteorologist Justin Loew, Morning Update, 24 December-2021

On this date in weather history: 1988 - Early morning thunderstorms developing along a cold front spawned a powerful tornado at Franklin, TN, which killed one person, injured seven others, and caused eight million dollars damage. Another in a series of winter storms in the western U.S. produced 20 inches of snow at Blue Canyon CA in 24 hours. Bishop CA received 14 inches of snow in just six hours, and Redding CA, which averages three inches of snow per year, was blanketed with ten inches. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
