Good morning Delmarva! It is an extremely chilly and frosty start as temperatures are in the 20s and 30s this morning along with clear skies and calm winds. We will continue to see a lot of sunshine through today and the highs will be around 50 degrees as a high pressure builds, but gives way throughout the day and moves off into the Atlantic… this is where the clouds will play a role because a low pulls in and leading to a big rain-maker for the first half of the upcoming week... the rain does start overnight tonight.
There is a system brewing/developing off to our west and this will more than likely create a soggy Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday morning, in addition to temperatures around 60 degrees. At this point in time, many areas will see about 0.5-1.0" of rain. In addition to the rain, the winds will also be howling from the S/SW with gusts around 25-30 mph at times.
Do want to mention that the highs on Tuesday will be in the mid to upper 60s, with rain, and wind... but the system will slowly start to officially pass overnight and this is where we will see a big drop in temperatures... from the upper 60s to the mid 30s in a matter of hours as Canadian air moves in. And because we will be close freezing on Wednesday morning, there is a possibility of seeing some light wet snow/wintry mix for those of you mainly in the northern portions of Delmarva... otherwise most of us should see rain.
Once this system passes, the skies will clear through Wednesday afternoon and lows return back to the 40s for highs for the remainder of the upcoming week... but with the wind factored in, it'll feel like the lower 30s to the 20s come Thursday.
Overall, a fairly pleasant Sunday is ahead, but then rain arrives for the first half of the upcoming week, which will then be followed by well-below average temperatures as an Arctic blast comes our way.
An average high temperature for early-December is 51 degrees and a low at 32.
