Friday, November 10 Afternoon Forecast Discussion

Lots of sunshine for us today as another weak cold front moves through the region. The only thing this front is doing is scouring out any remaining moisture to allow for a clear night with cold temperatures. Clear skies and light winds will combine to drop lows into the upper 30s with some middle 30s possible north of Interstate 20. It is here in northern counties where we may see some frost Saturday morning, so you may want to protect your sensitive plants tonight.

Veterans Day will be sunny and warm with highs at 70 as winds turn to the east-southeast to start a brief warming trend. This trend will be halted temporarily by a cold front that arrives Sunday. Models are mostly dry with this frontal passage with only a shower or two possible mostly across locations south of Highway 80. At this point, I do not have enough support or confidence to reintroduce rain chances to the official forecast on Sunday, but a rogue shower is still possible. If I were placing a chance, it would be 5%.

Behind Sunday's front, high pressure takes control to start a warming trend after one more cool day Monday with highs in the upper 60s. We return to 70 on Tuesday and keep warming through the end of the week with highs in the middle to perhaps upper 70s on Friday ahead of our next system. This front looks to bring rain showers, but timing is a major question mark this far out. I will go with the consistent models scenarios and go with a small rain chance on Friday. Unfortunately, if you like cool weather, this front doesn't look to have a major cool down with it. There could be bigger cool down some point prior to Thanksgiving with a front.
