Skies will stay mostly clear overnight with temperatures falling into the upper 30s.

High pressure will be in control of our weather through midweek, which means rain chances will remain low. Monday is looking mostly sunny with highs in the upper 50s to near 60, which is seasonable for this time of year. Low temperatures will fall into the 30s.

Temperatures will gradually warm as the week goes on. Tuesday and Wednesday will be milder, with highs in the low and mid 60s, which is above normal for this time of year. Tuesday will be dry with just a few passing clouds.

We will see a little more cloud cover as a cold front approaches and crosses late Wednesday. Right now, keeping rain chances around 20 percent because it looks like a lot of the moisture will be lost over the mountains or stay north of us. Once the cold front crosses, skies will clear out and the wind will pick up.

Much cooler for Thanksgiving. Temperatures will be below normal topping out in the low and mid 50s. It will feel colder though due to gusty wind out of the northwest. Winds gusts 25-30 mph possible. At least we’ll see plenty of sunshine. Temperatures will drop into the 30s overnight, so if you’re heading out to do some Black Friday shopping, you’re going to want to bundle up! Overall, Friday will be a chilly one with highs struggling to get out of the 40s.

Rain chances will increase over the weekend. Saturday will be chilly with highs in the upper 40s. Milder on Sunday with highs near 60, but we have a better chance to see some wet weather.
