As we head to the Thanksgiving holiday, the traditionally busiest travel time of the year, many wonder, what will it be like?
It will be ok. Not awesome. Not bad. Some sun. Some clouds. Rain/showers Thanksgiving night. The timing could change a little but that is how it looks right now. A storm moves through on Sunday/Monday with rain showers. Then sunshine for Tue and Wed. The storm for Thursday/Friday and then nicer for Saturday.
Longer range looks changeable, with cold shots and warm up with bouts of rain. By the second week of Dec things could get more interesting for early winter weather. But we'll see. Let's enjoy Thanksgiving first.
Sunday: Cloudy. Showers late/overnight. 52.
Monday: Cloudy. Showers ending. Breezy. 50.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. 45.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny. 48.
Thanksgiving: Increasing clouds. Rain/showers arrive late/overnight. 55.

Good evening weather world. Our late fall extension of the summer with temps in the 70s is now history. I sure enjoyed it. And I pray you did too. But now it is back to some semblance of typical November weather for the coming week.
A cold front is approaching and will give us cloudy and damp day on Sunday. Showers are likely especially in the afternoon. Monday looks chilly and breezy, and then Tue/Wed as a weak system moves through a light rain or snow shower is possible. The weather then remains on the dry but cool side with some moderation toward the weekend.
Sunday: Cloudy. Showers likely after 12 pm. Could be briefly heavy. 55.
Monday: Partly sunny. Colder. Breezy. 47.
Tuesday: Partly sunny. Chance light rain/snow shower. Breezy. 43.
Wednesday: Partly to mostly sunny. Chilly. 41.
Thursday: Partly to mostly sunny. 44.
Friday: Mostly sunny. 51.
Saturday: Mostly sunny. 54.
The last forecast I did a week ago was considered bold in warming the temps into the middle 60s from a week away. Little did we know it would be about 5-10 degrees too cool! Wow! What a stretch of weather for the first full weekend in November.
Will it continue? Yes. But it will cool some, and begin to get wetter as we head into the middle part of next week. A weak system will move into our area on Wed but it will have a nice plume of tropical moisture to work with. Some soaking rain likely Tuesday night. This system will depart slowly. Then high pressure takes control through next weekend. It will start out warm then turn seasonal. No lasting cold yet.
Sunday: Beautiful. Sunny. 73.
Monday: Partly to mostly sunny. 70.
Tuesday: Increasing clouds late or overnight. 66.
Wednesday: Rain. Heavy at times? 65.
Thursday: Gradual clearing. Showers ending early. 51.
Friday: Mostly sunny. 52.
Saturday: Sunny. 54.
A winter preview is coming for Sunday night into Tues morning then it stay calm and peaceful the rest of the week and through the following weekend.
A powerful cold front will move through the area later tomorrow. It will bring showers, and gusty winds along and behind the front. It will get much colder too. Do not be surprised to see some snow flurries or even brief snow showers early Monday morning. Nothing to get excited about, but we should see our first flakes of the season. Highs on Monday will struggle to reach 40-42. The wind will make it feel much colder.
After that, its dry and nice. Mostly sunny most days (unless a pesky marine layer builds in and messes it up like it can). And it will warm up too.
Sunday: Partly sunny early, showers likely after 2 pm. Becoming windy. 50.
Sun Night: Much colder. Chance snow shower toward daylight. 30.
Monday: Partly sunny. Windy. Cold. Flurries. Chance brief snow shower. 40.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. 47.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny. 55.
Thursday: Mostly sunny. 59.
Friday: Mostly sunny. 62.
Saturday: Mostly sunny. 65.
A new week is coming, and it will be VERY different than the last few we have had: moist and cool. Perhaps a big rainstorm and maybe our first snowflakes of the season by the end of the week?
A ridge is dominant right now, and will grudgingly give some ground. That means a battle will ensue over our area. This starts tomorrow (Sunday). And continues on again, off again through the week. Tuesday is a tough call, depending on whether a front moves through or doesn't. It will make about a 10-15 degree difference. Right now, I am leaning toward it not moving through.
Sunday: Partly sunny then cloudy. Light rain/drizzle begins after 2 pm. Chilly. 49.
Monday: Mostly cloudy. Showers ending. 55.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Chance for a few showers. 57.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. 55.
Thursday: Cloudy. Rain develops. Some could be heavy. 58.
Friday: Cloudy. Rain ends. Chilly. 44.
Saturday: Mostly sunny. 52.
Today is a little cloudier than expected as the high clouds streamed ahead faster than I thought they would, but it is warming up nicely. Rain is coming for later Sun/Sun night/Mon. Columbus Day will not be very pleasant. But we have had a lot of pleasant weather lately. And we need the rain. So, lots of pluses here.
The rain is coming from the remnants of Hurricane Delta. It will be a soaking. About 1" for many, with up to 2" esp. to our SE. Some showers are possible Tue but then it turns nice again for Wed, Thu and maybe Fri. No real cool downs, until maybe next weekend. indications are that a possible surge of very chilly air will arrive late next week and next weekend. More on that another day.
Sunday: Cloudy. Showers arrive after dark. Mild. 68.
Monday: Rain ends early. Showers/drizzle remain. 63.
Tuesday: Chance for a shower early. Partly sunny. 65.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny. 68.
Thursday: Mostly sunny then increasing clouds. 66.
Friday: Cloudy. Chance for rain. 62.
Saturday: Cloudy. Breezy. Chance for showers. Colder. 51.
Temperatures will go up and down the next few days. Down Thu and Fri then up on Saturday, and Sunday, dipping some on Monday, up again Tue before down on Wed. Fun!
It will also remain dry through Saturday. After that? It looks wet.
Cooler high pressure is taking over this evening from the NW. This will bring beautiful but cool weather for Thu and into Fri. As it moves SE warm west winds will return and bring a surge in temps for Saturday. The nice weather may hold on for part of Sunday, as the remnant low from Hurricane Delta looks to move toward our area. This set-up combined with an approaching trough early next week could bring us a soaking rain. We could use it.
Thursday: Mostly sunny. Cooler. 60.
Friday: Sunny. 64.
Saturday: Sunny. Breezy. Warmer. 75.
Sunday: Increasing clouds or mostly cloudy. Breezy. Rain arrives. 73.
Monday: Rain ends. 65.
Tuesday: Partly sunny. Chance for showers. 67.
Wednesday: Partly to mostly sunny. Chance for early showers. 58.
If you like rainy days ... this is not a forecast for you. If you like sunshine with cool to comfortable temperatures ... this is a forecast for you.
Basically we have a front coming through on Sunday night/Monday and Wed Night. There may be a few showers with the front, but nothing to worry about. Temperatures will range from low 60's Sunday to upper 60's Tue/Wed. It will turn cooler for the end of the week and into next weekend. Temps will range from upper 50's Thu/Fri to Mid 60's the following Sunday.
It should remain dry for the next 10 days, excluding a few showers with the cold fronts.
Sunday: Mostly sunny. 64.
Monday: Cloudy. Maybe predawn shower. Clearing. 64.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. 68.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny. Increasing clouds later on. Breezy. 70.
Thursday: Predawn showers then clearing. Breezy. 60.
Friday: Sunny. Early frost? 58.
Saturday: Sunny. Early frost? 64.
Sunday: Sunny. 68.
Well, the weekend went down as a damp, dreary, cloudy one. What looked like a summer weekend with sunshine was overcome by strong moist onshore winds. Too bad. It was a nice looking warm stretch through today. Will the sun come out today? It should. And then boost temps well into the 70s to even low 80s. But that will depend on when the clouds break up.
For this week, we have a big rainstorm late Tue into Wed morning. Then nice for Thu and Fri. Cooler. Another system could impact us on Sat. But that is rather unclear at this point. Again, the core of the coldest air (more like Nov than end Sep/beginning Oct) will remain to our west. (FYI: Avg temp in the afternoons should be near 70 this time of year).
Monday: Cloudy to partly sunny. Warm. Humid. 80.
Tuesday: Cloudy to party sunny early then showers develop afternoon. Rain overnight. 73.
Wednesday: Rain ends early. Chance for a shower. Cooler. 64.
Thursday: Partly to mostly sunny. Nice. Breezy at times. Sprinkle? 63.
Friday: Mostly sunny. Nice. 64.
Saturday: Partly sunny. 62.
Sunday: Mostly sunny then increasing clouds. Chance rain overnight. 62.

The education continued as a hobby by reading the blogs of some of the best forecasters in the business. Although forceasting the weather is an imperfect science, it is a pleasure to follow what the Creator has made.
