Temperatures are starting on the chilly side this morning thanks to clear skies and cool air in place. Most locations are running in the upper 30s or low 40s with a few higher temperature exceptions. Clear skies naturally mean no chance for rain and the MaxTrack confirms this. There may be some patchy fog out there today, but better chances for that will be present in the coming mornings.

Locally, there’s not much happening. We’ve been stuck with high pressure for about a week now. Not that anyone is complaining…the warmth is nice. The last few days have been great for outdoor enthusiasts, but it has also been unusual for early November. That’s right, in case you forgot, we’re in NOVEMBER! Temperatures will continue their warmup this weekend as we approach the low to middle 70s. We’ll be nearing 20 degrees above normal and running only a few degrees shy of daily high temperature records. All of this comes under sunshine. So, get out and take advantage of the nice and warm November weather; especially considering what’s up next. A strong low moving over the West Coast will be responsible for a snowy forecast for the high terrain out west. This front is moving cold air across North America and we will be the recipient later this week. The front looks to arrive by Wednesday with showers starting Tuesday. Heavier and more widespread rain is expected Wednesday with temperatures starting to drop. We’ll be back in the (low) 60s late week and overnight lows will dip down to the low 40s.
