Happy, happy Friday!

Winds will continue to be strong as we head into the overnight hours. As a cold front pushes through, they will shift in from the north and it will feel frigid out there Saturday morning. The cold front should move through Springfield around midnight.

A narrow band of rain showers will move through the region, which will be associated with the front and won’t last long.

There will be plenty of Christmas festivities going on this weekend. If you plan on heading out Saturday night, bundle up! It will be a chilly, but dry, night.

A pattern change is expected for next week. It is looking to be soggy. While we are still quite a few days out, it is likely this will be a widespread rain event with over 1″ possible for the week.
