Wednesday, November 20 Forecast Discussion

Clear skies today have allowed temperatures to climb into the upper 60s area wide as moisture also slowly begins to return to the region. Dew points have climbed in the mid 40s, and with the advance of clouds overnight, will hold temperatures some 10 degrees higher from where we bottomed out this morning.

Thursday will be dry as temperatures return to the 70s. Clouds will thicken Friday with highs again topping 70 before rain showers look to arrive after sunset. At this point, it does not look like most of us will see rain until after midnight, so Friday evening plans for now look mostly dry.

A cold front arrives on Saturday, and this will touch off showers through the day. The front will clear in the evening, taking the rain, clouds, and warmer temperatures with it. Highs on Sunday only return to the 50s.

Monday will be a transition day as an upper level low will be approaching, and as a surface low pressure develops, could send some rain showers our direction as the warm front passes on Monday. The best chance of rain of the next 7 days looks to be on Tuesday with the low pressure itself (both aloft and at the surface) passing by the region. We most likely will be on the northern side of this system, so no severe weather is expected at this time, but plenty of rainfall looks likely, and that could spread into our Wednesday. Any travel plans on Wednesday west of the area look okay, but if you are heading east, rain and storms may be a concern as rain will be departing from us through the day on Wednesday.
