Chilly, Quiet, & Dry Holiday Forecast

Dry, cold Thanksgiving week

Frigid and Frosty Start

After quite the unsettled weekend, we are starting off this morning in the twenties! Give yourself plenty of time to get out the door this morning, because the defrost and ice scraping will be in full effect. Yup, it’ll be one of those mornings.

Pleasant, but Cool Monday

High pressure will aid in keeping things nice and quiet in our neck of the woods. Sunshine will be abundant for much of today as our temperatures reach the low-mid 50s.

Tonight, our temperatures will plummet yet again falling to the mid 30s with mostly clear skies.

More Sunshine? We’ll Take It

Tuesday is looking nothing short of fantastic. Sunshine sticks around and as the large dome of high pressure shifts off to our southeast, we will see the return of southerly flow. This means temperatures will be a bit warmer for Tuesday, with high temps reaching the upper 50s.

Turkey Day and Beyond

A dry cold front will move through overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday. This essentially means we will see another major shot of cool air, but without the rain like what we saw this past weekend.  Wednesdays high temps will only reach the mid 40s with that cool northwest wind helping to usher in cold and dry air.

GFS model guidance suggest cooler air moving in early Wednesday morning. Via

Thanksgiving on Thursday even looks bitterly cold, with our high temperatures only making it to the mid and upper 40s. Luckily, that won’t impact the amount of tasty turkey you’re able to gobble up.
