Yes, you’re in the fog today.

However, the weather pattern looks like it will be changing this week and we are in for a couple weeks before Christmas of persistent chances of rain showers, or flurries, as the temperature hovers around zero.

Here are the Canadian, and American models for the next 10 days.

Notice the Canadian model above has us dipping down below freezing a little more often.  I don’t expect much to come of the potential showers on Tuesday.  But after that, it gets interesting.  Saturday through Sunday and Monday look an awful lot like a potential for wet flurries with steady temperatures around 1-2ºC and falling off to colder after that (which might indicate East side, outflow snow 4 days before Christmas)

The American GFS has even less on Tuesday, and likely fog throughout the week.  But things get interesting towards the weekend as we again have cool temperatures and light precipitation. After the weekend, the GFS switches to snow.

Is there a chance at a white Christmas?  Well… the chances are never good… but there is a chance.  Keep those fingers crossed!

In the meantime, expect fog today, Wednesday and Thursday.  Then we’ll see where we’re at!
