Colder but drier days lead this Christmas week forecast. As colder, arctic air continues to fill into the region today, highs will only reach the upper 20s under mostly cloudy sky. Isolated flurries are possible during the day, but mainly dry conditions persist. Tonight cloud cover starts to finally push off as temperatures tumble into the single digits with sub zero wind chills. Sunshine returns just in time for Christmas Eve, though temperatures won't exactly reflect that with highs only in the low 20s and a cold north breeze keep wind chills near zero. Tomorrow night should be good weather for Santa to travel; lows fall into the mid teens under partly cloudy sky. Cloudy sky sets up Christmas Day as a weak system moves north of the area, giving the slight chance for a light, isolated snow shower. Even with this chance, the forecast stays on track as it still appears we won't have a white Christmas. Temperatures rebound late in the week with upper 30s/low 40s on the way.
