Daily Weather Briefing for Sunday, December 1, 2019




Christmas Parade

The annual Christmas Parade will take place this afternoon in Franklin. It is scheduled to start at 3pm from the town hall, where it will travel down Main Street, turning left onto Porter Street at The Lazy Hiker, then turning left again onto Palmer Street, aka Back Street. The parade will then continue to the Highlands Road, where it will disband.


Outlook

Abundant moisture will cross the region from the west this morning in advance of an approaching cold front. The cold front will pass through the area late today through this evening, with much colder air arriving behind the front. Northwest flow moisture and gusty winds will set up behind the front tonight through Monday and linger into Tuesday. After a brief mid-week dry high pressure, another low-pressure system will arrive from the west late in the week.

Christmas Tree Lighting, Candlelight Service and Lightning
(preview video-- no sound due to technical issues with laptop)



The annual Winter Wonderland began last night with rain moving through late in the afternoon as Winter Wonderland got off to a slow start last night. After the initial rain showers passed, people came out to enjoy the festivities. The event culminated in the lightning of the Christmas Tree at the Gazebo, where children and grandchildren of town employees and town council members joined hands and turned on the lights to the tree. The 32nd annual Candlelight Service and blessing of the Nativity Scene took place immediately thereafter as lightning flashed and thunder rolled. A full video of the tree lighting and candlelight service will be published sometime Monday.
