Tracking a soggy rooftop for Santa’s Sleigh tonight

TONIGHT: I'm tracking rainfall becoming more widespread and consistent throughout the remainder of Christmas Eve. The main system has a north and slightly east track, so widespread rainfall will take time making it over to our more eastern counties. It will stay warm for this time of the year as temperatures only cool off into the low 50s by the end of the night.

TOMORROW: I'm tracking rainfall sticking around for some during the morning hours of Christmas Day. Counties north of I-70 have a better chance of observing this rainfall, but as the morning goes on the system bringing the rain will continue pushing north. By the end of this, counties west of Columbia could see rain totals of .75-1.5" while eastern counties will see more of the .5-.75" range. The morning will start off warm, but a cold front will drop temperatures throughout the afternoon. It'll feel a bit more like this time of year by the end of Christmas Day.

EXTENDED: I'm tracking clouds and chances for more precipitation for the first part of next week. With temperatures looking a bit more like average for this time of the year, Tuesday night into Wednesday morning brings the weak chance (20-30%) to get light rain and possibly snow. Below freezing temperatures will be hard to come by though, so any snow that does fall will melt as it reaches the ground. The rest of the week, temperatures will continue to hang in the upper 30s and low 40s for highs with clouds gradually lifting.
