So far I like what I see in the pattern with respect to a stormy Thanksgiving to Christmas. Opportunities for snow celebrations and for the gnashing of teeth as the rain washes away the snow. Storm track will be key. But the pattern is progressing nicely in the expected direction.
Locally, the rain yesterday did about as expected. Not heavy, just steady. A decent rain, but not a large amount. However, today the clouds have been really stubborn. Thought they would break up faster. Win some. Lose some.
Forecast still on track through this weekend. Chilly, but not unseasonably so. Then some moderation next week as a massive trough digs into the central US. More snow will hit the Rockies, and High Plains, with some very heavy rains from the Gulf Coast into the Midwest. Some flooding issues will likely occur the middle portion of next week with this. We should stay on the mild and dry side through midweek. But this whole thing will slide east, but weakening as it does.
My Weather Points for the Next 7 Days:
- Winds: Large storm in Central US lifts to our North and brings some strong winds Thu afternoon – Friday. Still gusty on Saturday at times, but diminishing.
- Clouds: Plenty of clouds around Thu and Fri.
- Sunshine: Lots of sun Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Partly sunny Saturday, and Wednesday.
- Rain: Showers likely Thursday afternoon into the evening. Sprinkles Fri night. Then dry until Thursday of next week.
Thursday: 60. Mostly cloudy. Breezy. Showers.
Friday: 54. Gusty winds. Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Sprinkles/light shower at night.
Saturday: 46. Partly sunny. Gusty NW wind. Cooler.
Sunday: 52. Mostly sunny. Cool but pleasant.
Monday: 54. Mostly sunny. Pleasant.
Tuesday: 58. Partly to mostly sunny. Milder.
Wednesday: 63. Increasing clouds. Mild.
