Highs will be around 30°, and skies will be mostly overcast.

Christmas Day, we'll see some high clouds around at times.

Christmas Eve will be clear and cold with a low in the mid- to upper-20s with wind gusts of 20 miles per hour making it feel like it's in the upper teens. Heavy rain is possible through Thursday night. The snow will also pick up in intensity, becoming more moderate to locally heavy in coverage.

SAY IT AIN'T RAIN AGAIN: Much like the last work week, we look to be ending off this one on a wet note again. "We did have a White Christmas past year, barely qualifying at the 1" criteria. Thursday will be the nastiest day by far when it comes to the weather, as wind will mix in, bringing blizzard conditions and unsafe travel.

After sunrise, temperatures get into the 30s.


The forecast for the Bemidji area calls for a 50 percent chance of light snow after noon on Wednesday, with a high temperature of 22 degrees.

Sat: High: 30 Low: 21 A few a.m. flurries then mostly sunny.

Tonight, a powerful storm system will begin to plow toward Kansas from the southern Rockies with rain showers expected across parts of our state by daybreak Wednesday. Expect sunshine and cooler temperatures. On Wednesday, I have a 40% chance of rain. Less than an inch of accumulation is expected, so impacts will be fairly minimal.

In the wake of the storm's passage, some gusty winds are likely.
