Temps will be mid 30s to mid 40s for most of the week until Friday. It looks like the cold air damming will be strong enough for a period of sleet and freezing rain Thursday Night into Friday morning. Rains on Friday may be pretty heavy. As I stated after the storm you really do need to make sure that water can drain away from the house. With Friday being Christmas the last thing you want to be doing is going outside and clearing snow from the drains!
As for the future, a very, very, very cold arctic outbreak could be on the doorstep around the new year. This could be preceded by another significant winter storm!
All for now!
