The big story for this upcoming week will be the temperature trend. A few days will be above average, but then the next day temperatures will be much cooler. This means there will be a bit of a temperatures roller coaster as we head into Thanksgiving week. Sunday will be warmer in the upper 30s to mid 40s and a few clouds. Then on Monday, temperatures continue to get warmer, but it doesn’t last for long, as temperatures will decrease by at least 20-25 degrees into Tuesday. Then again on Wednesday, temperatures warm back up into the 30s and 40s with a passing rain/snow shower possible. On Thanksgiving, there couldn’t be better conditions. Temperatures will stay in the 40s, above average, and winds should stay relatively light and only a few clouds at this time. Conditions on Black Friday, remain very similar to turkey day. The good news, this week should stay relatively dry, but there is a slight chance of snow/rain expected on Wednesday as a clipper comes through North Dakota. This may have a chance to impact some travel for the upcoming week. An average high temperature for this time of year is in the mid to upper 30s and lows in the teens.
Tonight, partly cloudy and winds southwest at 1-5 mph. Lows vary in the teens and lower 20s.
Sunday, a few clouds and highs in lower 30s in the northeast and lower 50s in the southwest. Winds southwest at 5-10 mph.
Sunday night, lows in the 20s with light winds from the south/southwest at 1-5 mph.
Monday, breezy, as winds will be west/northwest at 10-20 mph and gusts around 40 mph. Skies, partly cloudy, and highs in the 40s and a few 50s.
Monday night, clear skies, and winds gusting at 40 mph from the northwest and sustained at 10-20 mph. Lows in the teens and single digits.
