Warm for now, a colder Christmas on the way

(WVUE) - A weak cold front moved through the area this morning, and drier air will build in through the evening behind the front is mild Pacific air so highs will be above normal.

Patchy fog is possible tomorrow morning as temperatures cool into the 40s and 50s, then again Friday morning as moisture returns to the area. It will be very warm with near-record temperatures around 80 possible on Friday. A stronger cold front will bring a rain chance for Saturday. Temperatures will likely fall through the afternoon and evening following that front.

An even stronger, Arctic front still looks to arrive by Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Highs will likely not get out of the 40s for the holiday.
