20 December, 2016
The next storm to affect us will move in our direction late Thursday into Friday with some light mixed precipitation (too early to tell whether we get snow just yet).
The temperatures won't be quite as cold where low clouds linger and the best chance for that sets up east of I-65.
Another winter weather disturbance is expected to enter the region at the start of the Christmas weekend with rain a distinct possibility for Friday and a high of 43.
Tuesday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 20. Skies will remain mainly clear overnight and allow air temperatures to chase the dew point temperatures, which are in the upper single and low double digits. Temperatures will range from 15-25 this evening.
OPEC: Planned oil production cuts materialises
The price of February futures for Brent crude oil decreased by 0.17 percent and stood at $53.93 per barrel as of 05:54 EST, Dec.16.
Sunday will feature mostly sunny skies and cool temperatures. Lows will be in the 30s and 40s for Tuesday night, and 40s and 50s for Wednesday night. Temperatures will be above normal with lows in the 40s and highs near 70. A cold front will pass through CT by early to mid-afternoon. That will be followed by a 40 percent chance of rain Christmas Eve night and a 50 percent chance of precipitation on Christmas Day. Christmas Eve and Christmas both bring a chance of 50s for highs.
We have a fairly quiet week of weather leading into Christmas.
We expect mostly sunny skies and very comfortable temperatures with highs in the mid to upper 40s.
Daytime highs are expected to be right around 30 degrees today and in the mid 30s on Tuesday, but it's likely the last blast of arctic air the Lehigh Valley will feel before Christmas.
