Milder Air, But Rain Chances Increase…Many will welcome a milder southwesterly air flow this weekend.  While this will serve to help give temperatures a significant boost from what we’ve dealt with practically the whole month of November, it’ll also provide increasingly cloudy skies and the chance of sprinkles/ light rain showers by afternoon and evening.

Sunday will be even milder as highs reach towards the 60 degree mark.  A cold front will approach the area Sunday afternoon and evening and provide a better chance of showers and colder air to open the new work week.

Have The Dramamine Handy…We’re in the beginning stages of a pattern change that’ll promote at least “attempts” of milder air in the coming 7-10 days.  That said, cold highs will remain across the northern tier and present challenges in both the temperature forecast, but also precipitation timing in the back half of this forecast period.  In the longer term we want to be very clear that signals suggest mid and late December feature a cold and wintry pattern returning.

As we move into the mid and late week stretch plan for possible changes.  There are challenges that abound, but for now our best meteorological take will feature increasing clouds Wednesday with light showers arriving by evening.  This would be followed by steadier rains Thursday before drier and colder air returns to wrap up the work week.  Stay tuned; it’s a tough pattern, as is usually the case during the transitional seasons.

News And Notes: Bill will be on WIBC with Ray Steele this morning around 7:30.  Be sure and tune in to hear a little weather chit-chat and a lot of talk about tonight’s Iron Bowl… War Eagle!
