DUNCAN — Stephens County residents should enjoy this last day of warm weather because the cold is soon to return, according to The Weather Channel.

Though there are temperatures forecasted for today up to 70 degrees Fahrenheit, winds up to 20 miles per hour are blowing in a cold front that will settle in tomorrow. The high for Friday is projected to only be 41 degrees and winds will still be quite strong.

This weekend’s events will be facing some adversity with an expected high of 47 degrees on Saturday and a 70 percent chance of rain. Sunday will have a high in the low 40s, however, that night will possibly see the lowest temperature between now and Christmas with a low of 25 degrees.

Monday will also have a below freezing low at 30 degrees and a high of 48 degrees, though it is forecast to be sunny. For those traveling Tuesday for the holiday, the weather is expected to be sunny and pleasant with a high in the 50s.

Christmas Day is expected to also be in the mid-50s, however, there is a 20 percent chance of rain and projected low of 29 degrees. As of yesterday afternoon, the forecast does not show any sign Stephens County will have a white Christmas.

Thursday will most likely be another traveling day for area residents and the high is expected to get up to 51 degrees. There is again a 20 percent chance of rain.
