Today will bring back more of the colder air mass we’ve become so used to this month, as wind shift back out of the north and a chilly areas of high pressure moves in.
The colder air at least will be accompanied by much more sunshine and lighter winds. Highs will reach the upper 30s to lower 40s, with north winds at 5 to 15 mph.
Clear skies will give way to cloudy skies late tonight, as our next disturbance begins to head out of the Central Plains. Lows will range between the mid 20s and lower 30s, with northeast winds at 2 to 5 mph.
Sunday will be the better of the two days since Saturday will see the passage of a system that will bring a light rain/snow mix to the area during the morning. Any snowfall that falls would be light if it sticks at all.
THE WEEK AHEAD:
Temperatures are expected to rise into the 50s by early next week. However, this is likely the lead up to what could be a pretty messy travel day on Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We could be talking about a system that brings rain that changes to snow.
The latest drought monitor released Thursday has shown further improvement even from last week. Most of the area is back to normal, and should stay that way for the upcoming week.
We’re expected to be cooler and wetter than normal going into the beginning of December.
