Morning showers and fog for Friday

/ November 26, 2020 at 11:07 PM

We’ll start the Friday after Thanksgiving with some showers as a cold front slowly trudges through the area. Once this front is through, rain chances will decrease and we should have a fairly nice afternoon, with temperatures still running well above normal in the mid-70s — though not quite getting to 82° like we did today.

Warming back up as we head into Thanksgiving

/ November 24, 2020 at 6:45 PM

After a pretty quiet weather day with temperatures only topping out in the mid-60s, we will see a warming trend commence beginning Wednesday. Cloud cover will also increase as a storm system approaches the area for Thanksgiving. There will be a risk for isolated to scattered showers for Thanksgiving Day, but the warmth will be a little more noticeable with highs topping out in the upper 70s. A weak front will then clear the area, knocking temperatures down a little for Friday and bringing back a mix of sun and clouds. Overall, not too bad, but you will want to be ready to cover up any outdoor Thanksgiving activities just in case.

Coolest day of the week for Tuesday, then we warm back up

/ November 23, 2020 at 9:11 PM

Cool high pressure will be in control of Tuesday’s weather, with highs topping out in the low to mid-60s across the area under mostly sunny skies. A breeze out of the east will keep it feeling a little more brisk during the day as well. Overall, not too shabby with temperatures running a touch below normal.

Clouds will be on the increase Tuesday evening into Wednesday as our next storm system approaches the area, first bringing a warmup and then possibly some Thanksgiving rain.

Thanksgiving week: Quick cooldown, then warm temperatures

/ November 22, 2020 at 7:10 PM

Aside from Monday evening into Tuesday, Thanksgiving week will shape up a bit on the warm side, with a few showers for Thanksgiving Day possible.

Overall, the pattern will be pretty progressive this week. We’ll start the week with a cold front swinging through during the day Monday. This will knock temperatures back into the low 40s by Tuesday morning, with highs only reaching the mid-60s during the day. High pressure quickly shifts eastward, though, allowing for temperatures to moderate (and clouds to increase) ahead of another front Wednesday. The next front looks to swing through Thursday into Friday, and this is where we may see a few showers develop. (Right now, chances are low.) Temperatures will then level off a little lower, with perhaps some rain chances toward the end of the weekend depending on the forward speed of another storm system.
