Warm weekend, cold Christmas

Today is the shortest day of the year so I will keep this update short as well. A warm front will drift into Western Washington and trigger scattered showers through tomorrow. We will shift gears once again as a cold front blasts into the state on Monday with breezy conditions and heavy rain at times. This will leave behind cooler air (and a slow drying out) for Christmas Eve. High pressure quickly moves into the area and give us some sunshine (but still cold) Tuesday afternoon through Christmas Day. By the way, this is the first time there have been back to back neutral winter seasons since 1993 and 1994 according to the National Weather Service. It’s because of the neutral weather pattern that we have seen such extremes this season.
