Pull Out Those Heavier Coats…Last night’s cold front hit with authority and will likely be looked back on as the “game changer” between the warm, quiet fall we enjoyed and colder, more active times ahead.  Today is much colder with snow flurries and scattered snow showers. Gusty NW winds will feature wind chills in the 20s through the daytime before falling into the 10s tonight.

Calm, cold weather will continue into early next week before our next storm system blows into town Tuesday evening.  Clouds will increase through the day Tuesday and rain will arrive at night.  The big travel day before Thanksgiving looks blustery and wet with showers (especially during the first half of the day).  We’ll get the system out of here to allow for a dry, chilly Thanksgiving.

Looking ahead, another system of “interest” is on deck late next weekend or early the following week.  Timing and details are far from etched in stone with this being 7+ days out, but the potential is there for this to feature a wintry component…

Upcoming Precipitation Forecast:

  • Snowfall: Trace
  • Rainfall: 1.00″
