*WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FOR THE WESTERN HALF OF THE AREA TODAY
We’re tracking the coldest batch of weather so far this season. The winds aren’t going anywhere either. Northwest breezes will gust up to 40 mph again today – keeping temperatures in the 40s. Brrrr! However, it’s going to FEEL even colder. Wind chills (yes, wind chills) will be in the 30s all day – be sure to bundle up! Despite the ‘partly sunny’ skies – it’s going to be very cold all day.
Hard freezes are expected for the next few nights. Lows will plummet into the lower/middle 20s on Saturday AND Sunday morning. Tomorrow morning will remain breezy – expect wind chills in the teens for that early morning dog walk. We’ll squeak in more sunshine tomorrow, but temps will still be stuck in the 40s. Our average high temperature for this time of the year is only 54° – we’ll be back into the middle 50s by Sunday afternoon. Again, it will feel chilly outside. But temperatures later this weekend are actually pretty seasonal.
Temps will slowly climb close to 60° early next week. However, our next weather-maker will slide in on Tuesday. It will NOT be cold enough for snow (not even during the overnights). Expect a scattered, chill rain to fall across these parts for most of Tuesday. A few raindrops might even spill over into Wednesday. Highs will be in the 50s with lows in the 40s throughout that stretch.
The best part about a weather-maker moving through on Tuesday is that we will have PLENTY of time to dry things out and clear things out by Thanksgiving. Expect wall-to-wall sunshine with highs around 60° for Turkey Day. That’s about all we can ask for this time of the year – temps slightly ‘above average’ and NO SNOW. How quickly we forget last year’s ice storm over Thanskgiving Weekend.
