Clouds are on the increase from the west as our next system approaches. This will keep temperatures from cooling down too quickly through the evening. Breeze will ease up somewhat but we will still be feeling wind chills in the teens. Temperatures will range from the low 30s to the upper 20s for much of the evening.
We’ll see a mix of clouds and sunshine and a persistent breeze which may gust at times will keep temperatures feeling much colder. We should see temperatures warm to the upper 30s to near 40. But colder air rushes in and halts the warming process in the afternoon. Temperatures will fall fast in the evening especially as skies clear. This will set us up for a very cold start in the upper teens to low 20’s Friday morning.
Friday high temperatures will be cold in the low to mid 30’s. High pressure builds in bringing quiet but cold weather for Friday evening into Saturday. Lows will dip to the upper teens to low 20’s but we should rebound to near 40 by afternoon under mostly sunny skies and a southwest breeze. The next system arrives Sunday along with milder temperatures so we are looking at rain as a threat more so than winter precipitation. Temperatures will climb to the low 50s for the second half of the weekend which is closer to average and we are hitting 60 by Monday. Showers will be very likely Sunday late afternoon and evening and again Monday.
Tuesday we are cooling back down to the low 50s with dry conditions and partly cloudy skies. Wednesday, the biggest travel day right before the Thanksgiving holiday, the next trough deepens producing another shot of colder than average temperatures. It looks dry right now across the area but certainly colder.
