Rain chances stay in the forecast

Mostly cloudy conditions hang tough across the Commonwealth as temperatures warm into the 50's for many spots. The cold air plunging into the center of the country is bringing colder than normal temperatures. Some of the computer models show highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s on Christmas, but for now I will keep the forecast warmer and watch the trends for a few more days before going that cold.

Heavy rain is likely through the overnight Wednesday into the afternoon.

Today will be partly cloudy and very warm, but showers will be likely Wednesday. Stay tuned for more updates as we go through the week. Lows will only drop to the low-mid 40s.

Tonight: Mainly Clear. Lows in the mid 40s.

Sunday we will finally see some cooler air moving in.

However, the 50-something-degree warmth may make another cameo by the start of the upcoming holiday weekend. Today's high will reach the upper 50s.

There is a serious boundary between warm air in New England, and much colder air across NY in Ontario by Saturday night.

Clouds increase throughout the day on Friday and we jump back into the mid-50s. Rain chances should hold off until the morning hours.

Your 7-Day Planning Forecast includes Christmas!.so it's a ideal time to look at Wilmington's Christmas temperautre climatology. A few clouds around Thursday night, with lows in the upper 20s to low 30s. A colder weather pattern will take charge for that final weekend before Christmas. Although the placement of the cold front still could change and that means significant changes are still possible with the forecast through Christmas. Where these two features are will determine if we even see cold air for Christmas Day. We'll have a dry airmass in place, so no snow, sleet, or freezing rain, despite the frigid temperatures.
