Wonderful weekend weather

Near-record warmth with sun
Posted at 9:21 AM, Nov 08, 2020

Saturday was fantastic with temperatures in the low 70s for the afternoon and plenty of sunshine. It was certainly an outdoor weather kind of day. That continues for Sunday with temperatures warming further into the middle 70s. This will be near-record territory. The sunshine continues with rain chances at nil.

Temperatures will rise into the middle 70s this afternoon thanks to a ridge of high pressure to the east and a southerly wind flow. We will be near records the next few afternoons, but today is the best chance for a record break. The old daily high temperature record is 75 degrees from 2005. I am forecasting 76 for the afternoon. Tomorrow, we get close again with an afternoon forecast high of 75 and a record of 76 from 1975. Again, no chance for rain Monday due to continued high pressure influence. Things turn a bit going into Tuesday. Clouds will increase as the next front nears. Temperatures stay warm as a breezy southerly wind continues. The cold air will plunge in through the day Wednesday as the cold front arrives and passes. Rain showers will be present Tuesday afternoon in a scattered fashion. More widespread rain is expected Wednesday. A few thunderstorms could be embedded. Cooler air will stay with us through the end of the week and into the weekend upcoming.
