Dry conditions for now, but rain moves in just in time for the holiday….Enjoy the sunny, dry weather while it lasts. We’re tracking scattered showers for the Thanksgiving holiday.

As we move through our Tuesday evening, bundle up! It’s going to be cold with overnight lows in the low and mid 30s under mostly clear skies.

Wednesday will be our transition day. We’ll start the day with mostly clear skies. As we move through the afternoon, we’ll see increasing clouds ahead of our next weather maker. Still, most of Wednesday will be dry with high temperatures in the mid 50s.

On Thanksgiving, an approaching cold front from the west and an area of low pressure moving up the coast will impact our weather, bringing scattered showers our way. While Thursday will not be a complete washout for one particular location, there will be scattered showers around, so plan accordingly. Otherwise, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the lower 60s.

Our models continue to keep a little rain in the forecast on Black Friday. So, expect some wet weather during the day. Otherwise, we’ll see a good deal of cloud cover. Morning temperatures will be in the mid 40s. Highs will be in the mid 60s.  By the weekend, we’ll see sunshine and highs in the 50s and 60s.

Tonight: Mostly Clear and Cold. Lows in the low 30s. Winds: NW-N 5-10 mph.

Wednesday: Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy. Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: N/W/S 5-10 mph.

Thanksgiving Day: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers (40%). Highs in the low 60s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
