Wednesday November 17
The next two days will bring warmer afternoons, but this of year we often get it followed by a quick flip to much colder air. That is the case this time, and we will feel it Friday and this weekend.
The pattern is looking much colder next week, and we can easily suggest it looks like winter. But that does not promise snow. We could see flurries, but the general feel will be much colder.
If you are a fan of snow, the pattern looks promising as we close out the month and begin December.
Morning Surface Weather
A cold morning, and there will be a mix of high clouds today. The winds will shift and allow a warm up this afternoon, with a surge of warm air on Thursday. That will get us to near 70ºF, before a line of rain and storms Thursday night.
By Friday, the cold winds will be undeniable and set us up for below average temps into the weekend.
What to wear?
Gloves and hat this morning. By this afternoon you may carry that home with temps in the 60s.
