Forecast Discussion

Southerly flow ahead of an approaching cold front will keep skies rather gray today. Spotty areas of drizzle will be around this morning. The cold front will swing through the area by early Thursday. Mainly light rain will be likely by late today and tonight, concluding near daybreak on Thanksgiving Day. Sunshine will return, promoting some very mild temperatures for Turkey Day.

High pressure will promote a fine Black Friday around the area with mostly sunny skies and more pleasant temperatures, making it the weather pick of the period.

The holiday weekend will be mixed. Saturday should be partly sunny and rather pleasant. Sunday will have increasing clouds as a storm system gathers over the Gulf Coast region and heads our way. Rain will push into the mountains by Sunday night and continue into Monday morning, with significant rainfall amounts likely.

Much colder air will follow in behind this system for Monday night and Tuesday. Snow showers or flurries will be possible in the cold northwesterly wind flow.
