Turning sharply colder and long range forecast. -Doug

I hope everyone has enjoyed the week so far and looking forward to the holiday.  I hope you get plenty to eat and enjoy the family time!  After we get rid of the morning showers the clouds will hang tough for the morning but then some afternoon sun.  However, with the cold front rolling through, it will be sharply cooler.


And we may struggle to get to 43.  Super cold night Thursday night.

Friday Morning

At least we start to warm things back up on Friday.


We continue this warming trend into the weekend.  60s on Saturday, little cooler on Sunday.  We are kind of in part of the pattern that I would consider boring.  It does pick back up in a couple of weeks.  The part of the pattern returns that we had in mid October with all the severe weather events.  However, this time could be storms over to snow events by the second week of December.  Long range models are starting to hint at this.

Down The Road

Remember the winter forecast will be next Thursday night.  We are in a little bit of a calmer part of the pattern, but I have most of the winter forecast put together.  I am looking forward to the forecast.  Long range forecast is below.


November 30th-December 4th: Staying mild for the rest of the week. Dry until rain chances return for Friday and Saturday.

December 5th-11th: We’ll start with a chilly Sunday and a mild Monday. A system will bring rain chances for Monday and force us to turn cold for Tuesday. Staying active with rain chances Wednesday through Friday and showers for Saturday. Mild Wednesday through Friday before we turn cooler Saturday.

December 12th-18th: Cold for Sunday before we see cool air return Monday. Mild Tuesday through Thursday before we turn cooler again for Friday and Saturday. We’ll watch for slight rain chances Thursday.

December 19th-25th: Mild for Sunday and Monday before cooler air returns for Tuesday and Wednesday. Briefly mild for Thursday before we turn cold for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We’ll watch for rain chances Sunday and Monday to start the week. Rain chances on Thursday will switch to snow chances for Christmas Eve and snow showers for Christmas Day.
