It remains cloudy tomorrow with scattered showers in the afternoon with widespread rain in the evening. This upcoming weekend, temperatures will be dangerously cold. Breezy weather with winds from the west at 10 to 15 miles per hour with some higher gusts at times. Highs will be chilly with readings in the low 40's. Christmas night into Tuesday morning temps will plummet into the 10s and 20s.

IRELAND is set to be warmer than Barcelona as temperatures climb as high as 13C.

Tonight: Overnight, we'll have mostly clear skies.

Wednesday night into Thursday brings some uncertainty with when rain may develop and how quickly the cold front pushes through on Thursday which would lead to falling temperatures during the day as well as a possibly transition from rain to a wintry mix. Mostly cloudy skies are expected tonight, and there will be a small chance for a few isolated showers. While confidence is high regarding the cold blast by the weekend, there are still things to work out in terms of if we'll see snow.

The episode happened Wednesday as Honestie Hodges was abandoning her Grand Rapids home to go to a store, WOOD-TV detailed. Manning, 40, is white. "They had police cars all over this street, they had police cars all along the alley", she said.

A low pressure system will be moving through the Deep South, this will increase the clouds for us. Basically, it will be a cold, dry Christmas. Most of us will not make it out of the 40s for Thursday but we will only have a 10% chance of rain. Outside of that, the rest of Christmas Day is shaping up to be a mostly cloudy day with morning temperatures in the upper 20s and afternoon readings in the upper 30s.

The early call is for seasonable chill and mostly dry Christmas Eve, then a better chance for snow and ice and rain on Christmas Day. But we're watching closely.

SATURDAY NIGHT: A wintry mix of rain and snow will be possible, with a low temperature of 29 degrees.

Forecasters expect wet and windy conditions on Tuesday throughout the mid-valley, with up to an inch of rain falling and gusts up to 34 miles per hour. We turn very cold on Christmas day with flurries possible!
