Good morning! I hope everyone is having a great start to your Thursday morning. It looks like it’s going to be kind of a bleh day today. With a surface cold front moving through yesterday, high pressure is building into the region today. This will leave us with sunny skies and pretty cold temperatures. Highs for today will be in the low 50’s. There may be some fog this morning in low-lying areas, so just be aware while you’re traveling to work.

High pressure will begin to drift eastward Thursday night into Friday. Lows overnight will be right around the freezing mark. Friday will act as more of a transitional day as high pressure moves out and another weather system moves in. Highs for Friday will be warmer as southerly flow advects into the area. Temperatures will warm to right around 60 degrees. That’s, like, real warm for November!

Friday night through Saturday night, we could see some strong winds and storms in the area. As a low pressure system deepens in the Plains, a warm front will advance toward our area, causing showers and storms to move through the area.
