How about these temperatures?! It has been warm this afternoon due to high pressure off to the east and the southerly flow across the area. This has also led to a breezy afternoon, with gusts upwards of 25 mph. Take advantage of the pleasant conditions now, before a cold front brings rainfall and cooler air in the days to come.
Glancing at the longer term, cooler than average air is more and more likely to end out the month of November. Not only will temperatures be in the upper 40s to low 50s Friday afternoon, but another system late weekend has an opportunity to knock highs into the low and mid 40s early to mid week. We'll update you more on this with time. As for precipitation, above average is expected over the next week, before a trend toward normal arrives late month and into December.
Model guidance depicts the front that will arrive for tomorrow. Showers will start off the day, carrying, for some, into the mid afternoon. These should move out rather quickly, with sunshine making a return on Friday. Highs will run from the upper 40s to low 50s, warming through the weekend. Our next weather maker then arrives Sunday and into the start of the new work week.
If you have any loose outdoor items, make sure to pin them down or bring them to a secure area. Winds will continue to be breezy through the afternoon before calming down overnight. Additionally, don't forget to pack the umbrella, you'll likely see showers at times through the morning and up through lunch tomorrow.
