Wind Advisory Saturday along with PM showers & storms
A Wind Advisory is in effect for Saturday & Saturday Night as a cold front approaches. Rain and some storms late Saturday, then much colder Sunday.
WINDY, WARM & LATE DAY STORMS SATURDAY
Increasing cloud cover throughout the day along with increasing wind speeds from the south. That strengthening southerly flow ahead of a cold front could create wind gusts that could exceed 30 mph at times. This is why a Wind Advisory is in effect. Temperatures should still be warmer than average with morning temperatures in the upper 40s, then reaching the upper 60s by the afternoon. It would not surprise me to see a few local spots near 70.
Showers and some thunderstorms should begin to increase in coverage locally during mid to late afternoon from the west. A line of showers and storms should continue moving through locally from late afternoon and into the evening hours. The main severe threats are strong wind gusts and heavy downpours. Some gusts during a few storms could exceed 40mph. Flooding is not expected and rainfall amounts should be under 0.50" on average. There will be a few spots where the rain could be a little heavier.
Most of the rain should have ended by late evening, then drier and colder overnight.
SUNNY & COLDER SUNDAY
You will notice the temperature difference first thing Sunday Morning! Wake up temperatures should be in the upper 30s along with a northerly breeze. Still breezy through the afternoon, though the wind speeds should not be as strong as Saturday. Partly then mostly sunny through the afternoon and cold. Temperatures should only reach the upper 40s with the steady breeze making it feel colder. In fact, the Wind Chill could stay in the 30s for most of the day!
Even colder Sunday Night as temperatures dip into the upper 20s to near 30.
COOL & DRY THANKSGIVING WEEK
A quiet weather pattern through Thanksgiving Day! Very cold Monday Morning with below freezing temperatures, then lower 50s and partly sunny during the afternoon. Tuesday and Wednesday both look partly sunny with morning lows in the 30s and afternoon highs in the mid/upper 50s. Thanksgiving Day looks partly sunny with an afternoon high in the mid 50s after a morning low in the low/mid 30s. Right now, Black Friday shopping weather looks cool and dry with 30s during the morning and low 50s during the afternoon.
