      The rumors are true…we're keeping our eye on a system that could hamper your holiday travel by the end of the week!

      A low pressure system is on track to lift out of the Rockies and spread snow, perhaps even a bit of a wintry mix, into our area by Wednesday night and even more so by Thursday and Friday. It's still too early to nail down any snow amounts or where the heaviest snow will fall, but it is certainly something to stay aware of if you have travel plans. What we do know for sure though, it's going to get awfully cold for Christmas itself.

      Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let's bring you back to this week. The cloudy, mild conditions will continue through Monday and then we should finally see a few more peeks of sunshine by Tuesday. Overnight tonight, temperatures will fall into the low 20s and even with mostly cloudy skies again on Monday, we'll shoot above the freezing mark with temperatures in the middle 30s by the afternoon. Highs drop back a little on Tuesday, but we stay in the low 30s and then the transformation to more winter like conditions begins on Wednesday. Highs will top out in the middle 20s with a chance for developing afternoon snow. This won't be the main event, that'll come Thursday and Friday with the potential for several inches of snow. Right now the weekend itself looks dry, but as mentioned above, it will be very cold. Stay up to date on your forecast this week as this system wobbles its way across the country and we tweak the details as needed. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist LeAnn Lombardo
