Weather Outlook - December 4, 2016
Published Sunday, December 4, 2016

Sunday and Monday will be the warmest days of the week ahead of days of sub-freezing temperatures and a stronger chance of snow.

The high Sunday will be in the upper 40s under sunny skies before dropping to the upper teens over night.

Monday will be the warmest day of the week as temperatures reach the upper 50s.

Once Monday night's low falls to the teens, above-freezing temperatures will not return until Friday. Winds will increase to 20 - 25 miles-per-hour Monday evening as a cold front drops south across the Palmer Divide before dropping back to 10 - 15 mph after midnight.

Tuesday high will be around 30, and east winds in the 15 - 20 mph range. Snow is likely later in the day into the evening. Look for one to two inches of accumulation. Overnight temperatures will fall to the low teens.

Cold continues Wednesday as the high reaches 20, then plunges to zero overnight under mostly clear skies. Thursday's conditions will be similar.

By Friday, some warming is expected as temperatures return to the upper 30s.
