No rain likely until Christmas Eve, then a Christmas Day cold front

Published: Updated:

After a pleasant afternoon, another chilly night ahead for SW Florida with lows falling down into the 40s & 50s.

With drier air in place no rain is expected, at least until Christmas Eve. Our rain chances for Thursday are due to a powerful cold front sweeping across the state. The best timing for rain and even a few storms on Christmas Eve will be during the afternoon into the evening.

Rainfall totals are currently projected between 0.10 to 0.50″, with a few spots higher. Christmas Day will be breezy and much colder, with lows in the 40s and highs in the 60s. Temperatures continue to drop all the way into Saturday morning, with lows in the 30s and 40s with wind chills even lower. Brrr!
