Tumbling Temperatures Friday Afternoon

We knew it had to happen at some point.  Our nice warm November would eventually turn cooler and more typical for this time of year.  But before that happens, Thursday's high of 70 degrees would put just 3 degrees away from our record high of 73 degrees set back in 1941!

Temperatures will remain mild Thursday night with overnight lows staying in the middle 50's.  This will help warm us into the low 60's early Friday ahead of a powerful cold front expected to move through Friday afternoon.  Highs Friday will warm between 62 and 64 degrees, but then drop nearly twenty degrees once the cold front passes by Friday evening.

As the low pressure system strengthens Thursday night, winds will increase and likely become a bigger issue for us Friday and Saturday.  Winds Friday will gust as high as 35 mph and near 40 mph Saturday.  This will push wind chill values Saturday down into the 20's.

Highs through the weekend will likely stay in the upper 30's with overnight dropping into the low 20's.  More seasonable weather is expected the first week of Thanksgiving, but we're starting to pay close attention to a possible storm system that could impact Tuesday night into Wednesday holiday travel.  More on that in a later post.
