Warmth Here To Stay
After overnight lows dropped to around 32°, southwest winds around 5 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph will help temperatures warm quite a bit.
Combine the southwest flow and mostly sunny skies and we’ll likely see afternoon temperatures top out around 61°.
A cold front will move through the region overnight. There may be just enough moisture in the atmosphere to produce a few isolated showers, however confidence in this is pretty low. Temperatures will drop to around 45°.
The cold front will have little impact on temperatures Saturday. Expect gradually clearing skies with a northwest wind around 5 to 10 mph, gusting to 15 mph. The high will rebound to around 57°.
We’ll begin to feel the effects of the cold front more on Saturday night. A cold area of high pressure will settle into the region leading to low temperatures around 32° under mostly clear skies.
The weather will remain “nice and boring” on Sunday as high pressure moves just south of the region, placing us in southerly surface flow. This will lead to high temperatures in the mid 50s under mostly sunny skies.
The main feature of interest in the long term is a cut off, or sharp shortwave trough moving through the region on Wednesday. Depending on the track of the surface low pressure, a few thunderstorms may be possible Wednesday. After that, the pattern looks more active as we move into December.
