WEDNESDAY: Temperatures this afternoon are rising nicely into the lower 50s, accompanied by a west/southwest wind up to 10 mph. With plenty of sunshine, afternoon highs will have no trouble reaching the mid to upper 50s today.
TONIGHT: Temperatures drop back towards freezing by Thursday morning under clear skies. Winds will be light out of the south up to 8 mph, making feels like temperatures feel a few degrees cooler than actual air temperatures for the morning commute.
EXTENDED: The warmer weather continues for Thanksgiving as we reach the upper 50s with sunshine for the holiday. By Black Friday our next chance of rain returns, moving in from the west in the morning and continuing through the afternoon with high temperatures near 50. It will be a damp, breezy and cool Friday. Saturday looks dry with highs in the mid to upper 50s. Another storm system moving in from the southwest will bring a chance of rain Sunday followed by colder air. As the colder air moves in, the rain is expected to change over to snow by late afternoon or evening. Right now it looks more likely to see snow in areas north of I-70 but this could change depending on where the storm system ends up. Right now impacts look minimal, as any snow we see will fall on a soggy ground and melt. What we will be watching for is very windy conditions Sunday, with winds gusting up to 35 mph. There is still uncertainty on position and timing which we’ll pin down as we go through the week. If you have travel plans for Sunday into Monday, keep an eye on the forecast. The start of next week looks cold with highs only in the 30s and nights in the lower 20s as the winter weather pattern returns.
