UPDATE: Light showers, mist, and fog continue for Sunday
A few isolated light showers remain, and much of the area is experiencing mist and light fog. The more developed areas of showers should be done by around 5pm for our western counties and 7pm for our eastern counties. The far eastern mountains in Monroe, Polk, Cherokee, and Fannin counties may see isolated wintry mix/snow for tonight. Cloud cover will persist into the evening until about 10pm when it will begin to decrease to partly cloudy overnight. Regions of patchy dense fog, especially near rivers and lakes, may develop tonight. With low temperatures in the upper 20s to low 30s, areas of freezing fog are possible.
For Christmas Eve, Monday will dry out again with a mix of sun and clouds. Cloud cover will decrease in the mid-afternoon through evening, becoming mostly sunny. High temperatures will be in the upper 40s. Overnight, temperatures will likely drop below freezing with lows in the upper 20s to 30. Christmas on Tuesday will be partly cloudy with broken cloud cover and sunshine. High temperatures will be in the upper 40s to 50 with an isolated chance for a shower (10%), but most of us will be dry.
Wednesday will have more clouds as a partly sunny day with warmer temperatures in the mid-50s. There will also be a 10% chance for an isolated shower. Then, it will become mostly cloudy by night as a frontal system approaches our area with lows in the mid-40s.
Rain returns on Thursday and Friday. The heaviest showers will be Thursday evening/night into Friday morning with the potential of a few thunderstorms during this time. Temperatures will be warm both days, upper 50s to 60 on Thursday and mid-60s on Friday. Then drying out on Saturday before another round of showers on Sunday from the south.
