Milder days ahead, then some rain to start the weekend
Some seasonable weather the next few days along with some milder afternoons through late week. Some rain could be on the horizon to start the weekend and possibly a chill heading into Thanksgiving!
MILDER DAYS THROUGH MIDWEEK
Temperatures should be close to average or normal Tuesday and Wednesday. A mix of clouds and sun Tuesday with afternoon temperatures in the upper 50s and even near 60 areas south. Still chilly for the morning with 30s most areas. By Wednesday, we should again have a mix of clouds and sun and afternoon temperatures sneaking above the 60 degree mark.
As a weak cold front approaches, we could gradually have more cloud cover into the afternoon and night. A few light showers could accompany this front, but overall this front should be what we call "moisture starved". So, more clouds than showers. We are still keeping that slight chance in there for Wednesday Night through early Thursday. But, otherwise a cloud sky.
60s LATE WEEK
A gradual warm up should continue for Thursday and Friday. A mix of clouds and sun both days, but afternoon highs should reach the mid 60s both days and even the possibility of upper 60s Friday.
WEEKEND STARTS OFF SOGGY
Another cold front moves in to start the weekend. This front should have a much better chance for rain, especially on Saturday. Some showers could move in as early as late Friday Night, but most of the showers should move through during the day Saturday. This does not appear to be a heavy rainfall event, nor anything severe. Rainfall projections from forecast models are around 0.25"-0,30". Most of the rain should end quickly late day and into Saturday Night.
DRIER AND COLDER SUNDAY
After a soggy start to the weekend, it does look drier for Sunday, but also a bit colder. Mid to upper 30s Sunday Morning as skies clear, then sunny and breezy through the afternoon with highs only in the upper 40s to lower 50s. This chilly and dry air mass should stick around through next Monday as we start the Thanksgiving Week.
As mentioned in our earlier posts, we continue to monitor the possibility of much colder air moving in to a large part of the US including locally by Thanksgiving Day. This trend continues to show up in longer range model projections from both the GFS and European Model. This air mass could settle in by the middle of next week and continue through Thanksgiving Day and even the big shopping day on Friday. Stay tuned as we will continue to track this!
