Sunny Monday To Be Followed By Rain - Maybe Snow - Later In Week

Snow in Germany yesterday

Temps: High of 78 degrees Monday and a low of 40 degrees Tuesday night. This easterly component to the breeze should help keep high temperatures from really taking off but we should still see the numbers climb to above normal levels.

Tuesday: Occasional showers, with up to a half-inch possible.

The strong cold front crosses southeast MI between 5:00 and 8:00 a.m. Tuesday morning, and two things will happen immediately: the rain showers end, and temperatures crash. If the model is right, that could mean two brief periods of light snow or snow showers.

Met Office forecaster Mark Wilson told the Metro: "The first low pressure area sees windy conditions for the whole of the United Kingdom on Wednesday into Thursday, with gusts approaching 55 miles per hour near south coasts and 60 miles per hour near west coasts".

This week, a strong cold front will deliver a needed rain chance and send temperatures tumbling!

Wednesday: We'll likely see a little more rain - forecasters expect a 30 to 50 percent chance of showers and highs between 50 and 55 degrees. It will be slightly warmer than today with temperatures of between nine and 11 degrees. Many events 4 days out that I'd call "borderline" end up as nothing more than cold rain in this part of the world. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies can be expected. Highs Friday could be in the low to mid 40s. High temperatures Wednesday may be early in the day, in the mid 40s, as it's very well possible the temperatures will be falling as we progress through the afternoon.

"A much colder air mass will then take charge from Thursday morning".

Meanwhile, Britain is braced for its coldest December in seven years, with freezing conditions set to bring snow and winds gusting up to almost 100kph to certain parts this week.

December is supposed to be a month where the weather gets active.

They're predicting another chance for snow and sleet next weekend as low temperatures reach the teens, and another chance to see snow during the last week of the month.
