Uncertainty abounds for Christmas Day forecast

AccuWeather’s Mike Smith says there’s still plenty of uncertainty about the forecast for Christmas Day, and he spells out why in a post on his blog, Meteorological Musings. In short, bad information in, bad forecast out…….

Wichita weather: A chilly Christmas Eve, then a white Christmas

It’ll be a mostly cloudy and crisp Monday in the Wichita area, forecasters say, with highs reaching the low to mid-30s.

Winds will be light and out of the northeast, staying in the single digits. Those winds will strengthen overnight into the teens, with gusts topping 25 miles an hour. Lows are expected to fall into the mid-teens.

Christmas Day will be cold and blustery, forecasters say, with a good chance of snow. Highs will only touch the low 20s, with north winds in the upper teens and low 20s. Gusts will top 30 miles an hour at times.

About an inch of snow is expected in the Wichita area, though forecasters say that could change if the storm’s track shifts. Lows on Christmas night are expected to drop into single digits, with north winds easing to the low teens after midnight.

Wednesday is shaping up to be sunny but cold, with highs in the low 20s.
