How long will sunshine last?/Christmas forecast/3 Month Temperature and Precipitation Outlooks

A zonal pattern of temperatures this weekend with teens and 20s over the northern tier of states (warmer in the Pacific Northwest). 30s and 40s for the middle stretch and highs inthe 50s to 70s across the southern states (with most of coastal California in the 60s and 70s). There will be some snow showers from Detroit to Chicago to Cincinnati to DC to NYC and in the northern plains and Intermountain Region. A Cold rain for the mid-Atlantic and lower elevations of Oregon.

Hooray! The sun was back out in Houston today!!! The dry weather and sunshine will be with us through the weekend. Mornings will be chilly...look for a light freeze early Sunday for outlying areas (possibly Saturday morning as well). Highs will be in the 60s both days. Moisture and milder weather return Tuesday and Wednesday. There will be rain Tuesday and Wednesday with a few thunderstorms possible. Cold weather arrives late in the coming week. Christmas Day should be dry with lows in the 30s (a freeze is possible early) and highs in the 50s.

Have you seen the new multi-grain saltines? I like these a lot better than regular saltines. The multigrain and 5 grain wheat thins are also fantastic...very crispy.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
