Heavy rain will continue to impact the morning commute up until 9 AM. Slick roadways, ponding of water on roadways, and poor visibility from heavy rainfall is our biggest concern. Showers will begin to diminish throughout the afternoon with a few isolated showers lingering across the Valley until this evening. Many locations will end up with 2 to 5 inches of rain.

On Thursday, the first official day of winter, we'll catch some dry time with partly sunny skies and high temperatures in the lower 60's.

We'll climb into the mid 60's Friday with a few isolated showers before a strong cold front works its way into the Valley Friday night into Saturday morning. Between 1 to 2 inches of rainfall is possible.

A brisk Northerly wind will usher into the Valley where cooler and drier air will take over our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day forecast as high temperatures drop into the upper 30's and lower 40's and overnight lows in the 20's.
