TODAY: Some early, spotty drizzle is possible with some icy patches not out of the question in far northern suburbs like the Lehigh Valley and Poconos. Overall, we expect a mix of clouds and sun today with light winds and a somewhat milder high of 48.

TONIGHT: Look for partly cloudy skies, continued light winds and a chilly low around 38 in Philadelphia with some suburbs dipping into the low to mid 30s.

TUESDAY: Clouds mix with sun again but it's even milder ahead of an approaching cold front. Look for a somewhat breezy but pleasant afternoon with a high of 56.

WEDNESDAY: Behind our weak, departing front, cooler air returns. We have partly sunny skies, a chilly breeze and a high of just 45.

THURSDAY (WINTER SOLSTICE): Bright sunshine dominates the sky, but we're still chilly with a high around 42. Winter officially arrives at 11:28 a.m..

FRIDAY: A warm front pushes into the region, bringing mainly cloudy skies, some late day and evening rain and a milder high of 52.

SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy skies persist with some occasional rain and a very mild high of 61.

SUNDAY (CHRISTMAS EVE): Mostly cloudy are likely and some additional rain can't be ruled out, mainly in the afternoon and evening. Santa may have to break out the rain gear when he gets to our neck of the woods! The high is 49.

MONDAY (CHRISTMAS DAY): Changes are likely to this forecast as there has been a lot of model disagreement in recent days this far out. That said, some recent runs suggest a mostly cloudy day with some rain possible. The high temperature is hard to peg. 49 seems reasonable, for now, but both milder and cooler solutions are out there. If a cooler wedge of air can press far enough south, some snow could even mix with the rain at times. We gain more clarity as the holiday draws closer.
