Forecast Discussion

After idyllic Thanksgiving Day weather, cold air returned today on northwesterly winds behind a departing moisture-starved frontal zone. Under clear skies tonight, it will be noticeably colder.

The weekend doesn’t look bad. The initially cold air mass will moderate some. Saturday features more sunshine than Sunday. A dry, reinforcing cold front will pass through later on Sunday, providing a chilly start to the workweek.

The air mass moderates nicely after Monday, with temperatures returning to above-normal for the second half of the week. Dry weather is set to continue until we get to the first weekend in December.
