  • Thursday forecast: cloudy skies for the day, rain to return by Friday night in Polk County

- Overall quiet and cold for the official start of winter Thursday. "The good news is that we do not anticipate much in the way of thunderstorms for either day, although rain totals could approach 1.0" or more for some neighborhoods.

Then for Sunday, we will continue to have partly cloudy becoming mostly sunny skies.

Saturday Morning Lows: Low 30s Afternoon Highs: Upper 30s Cloud cover: Cloudy.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 16.

If your flying out of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport - which handled more than 1 million passengers in December previous year - try to give yourself as much time as possible to get to the airport, officials say. Partly Cloudy. Highs in the low 20's. A storm system will move across southern Missouri late in the day, spreading moisture to the north. Rain is possible mainly along and south of I-44 with a slight chance as far north as HWY 50 Friday evening and overnight. Best chances for rain with this front should be areas south and east of Abilene. For those heading west toward El Paso, daytime temperatures will only be slightly warmer with highs in the upper 50s, according to the latest weather service forecast there.

Friday will see rain likely, but mainly after noon. Plan on a sunrise near freezing for metro Baton Rouge and a daytime high only getting into the upper 40s, putting a holiday chill to the air indeed.


Skies cleared behind the front and sunshine helped take temperatures back into the 70s for the afternoon. Lows will be down to 24-30 area-wide.

Mixed precipitation is expected.

Met √Čireann is forecasting temperatures of between 9 and 10 degrees Celsius over Christmas Eve and into Christmas Day in Kilkenny.

The freezing rain and ice will linger straight into Saturday across numerous colder communities of eastern Vermont, New Hampshire, and ME, while plain rain falls farther south as temperatures climb into the 40s and even 50s in some cases.

Sunday night - A chance of snow showers.

Heavy snow may fall early Christmas morning before the storm system pulls away, leaving several inches of fresh snow in its wake.
