Cold Morning Will Translate To A Cold Afternoon. Few Rain Drops In Forecast Tonight

Good Monday Morning and I hope each of you had a great week. Hopefully you are one of the lucky ones that have half the week of. Happy early Thanksgiving by the way!

It was a cold start this morning. Temps started out in the mid 20 and upper 20’s in most areas. Most of the area also saw its largest frost of the cold season so far. Clear skies this morning but high clouds will start to filter out the sun as we go through the day. Daytime highs will be in the upper 40’s. Tonight high clouds will thicken ahead of the next approaching trough/cold front. Flow veers to the Southwest and low level moisture will start to increase. Certainly by Tuesday Morning it will be mainly cloudy. Due to the increasing cloud cover temps will remain well above freezing, likely only losing 2-5 degrees off Monday daytime highs. 


Tuesday will be a fairly cloudy day it appears now. With Southerly flow temps should bounce back into the mid 50’s for highs. Although clouds will be abundant the rain will not. We will only advertise up to a .10 of an inch of rain. Those totals may be slightly higher along the Eastern slope of the Blue Ridge. 


Cold weather returns to end out the week. Thanksgiving looks to be dry here but if plans take you to the coast then it could be damp as two areas of low pressure race North Thursday and Friday. Here just Clouds time to time. Snow lovers the pattern is setting up for an interesting December but nothing on the horizon that we are watching in particular right now.
