Skies will clear Friday night allowing temperatures to drop below freezing by Saturday morning. That will be the coldest weather we will see over the next 8 days. Winds will shift to the south Saturday afternoon and that will warm temps into the upper 50s for highs. Clouds will increase again late Saturday night. That will lead to rain as early as Sunday morning. In the afternoon there is a chance of a stronger storm or two in the Pine Belt. There is a MARGINAL risk of severe storms in the southeastern part of the state Sunday. Heavy rain and damaging winds will be possible. An isolated tornado can not be ruled out. Unfortunately, the rain will linger for several days as more waves of low pressure move our way from the west. The chance of rain is 70% or better through Monday and Tuesday. The rain won’t taper off until at least Wednesday. Thursday is the first day of the winter season and that will be our best day next week with highs in the mid 60s under partly sunny skies. Rain is right back in the forecast at the end of next week, just days before Christmas.
