161120_921_almanacNice November weather on tap for the next week.  It’s not the 60s and 70s of last week, but that wasn’t normal. Normal temperatures for this time of year are daytime highs in the mid-50s and overnight lows right at the freezing mark.

161120_921_daycastWe’ll be back at normal levels for the upcoming week as we’ll see temperatures ranging from the mid-50s today into the 60s on Tuesday and then back into the 50s for the remainder of the week. Overnight lows for the same period will be near freezing on Sunday night but a brief warm up is in store for Monday and Tuesday night and back into the mid-30s from Wednesday night to the end of the week.

Discussion –

That will put us on the warm side of the high and allow for some warmer air to flow into the region. Temperatures will warm today and through Tuesday as the high pressure moves off to the east.

161120_921_looking-aheadAs that moves eastward, that will allow for an area of low pressure that is stalled in the foothills of the Rockies to eject out into the plains. That along with an upper level shortwave will move out of the desert southwest and bring us our next chance for rain on Tuesday.

Tuesday’s rain chances begin late in the morning and will extend through the overnight hours Tuesday night. We’ll mostly see just showers, but with temperatures pushing into the lower 60s on Tuesday, there might be some increased instability that could produce some isolated rumbles Tuesday afternoon and into the evening hours.  No severe weather is expected with the passage of this storm system.

We’ll see a drop in temperatures during the day on Wednesday and into Wednesday night as the cold front passes through. However temperatures will quickly return back to the upper 50s on Thursday.

For those of you travelling on Wednesday and Thursday, I’m not seeing any weather related issues for any driving. Temperatures will be at or slightly above normal Thursday through the weekend.
