... High pressure today yields to southwest flow tonight and Tuesday. Cold front crosses Tuesday night. High pressure again through Thanksgiving. Cold front crosses Saturday.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/... As of 202 PM Monday...
Main forecast concern through the near term will be temperatures and winds as southwest flow engages behind a departing high pressure system and in advance of an approaching cold front.
With light winds anticipated early tonight, prime radiational cooling conditions will result in a quick temp drop toward dewpoints which currently reside in the low 20s. Temps will level off later in the night across the lowlands as winds begin to stir. However, sheltered mountain valleys will stay decoupled through much of the night allowing them to fall deep into the 20s.
Winds will ramp up quickly after dawn on Tuesday as we mix up into stronger winds aloft. Gusts 20 to 25 mph are expected out of the southwest. The strong mixing and partial sunshine will help boost temps into the 50s to near 60 for most locations outside of the higher mountains. Clouds will be on the increase through the day, but expect any precip with the approaching front to hold off until Tuesday night.
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/... As of 240 PM Monday...
This period begins with a cold front approaching from the northwest. Although we are expecting precipitation, amounts still remain on the light side as the WPC QPF is only around one tenth of an inch. Models indicate the northern quarter of our area and the mountains will be the only locations that will see the precipitation change over to a snow or rain/snow mix as this system moves out early Wednesday.
Prefrontal temperatures will be near normal Tuesday night, but will drop quickly as cold air moves. Temperatures Wednesday and Wednesday night will be around 10 degrees below normal.
LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... As of 240 PM Monday...
High pressure, with below normal temperatures and light winds, will be present Thanksgiving Day until early Saturday morning.
Although models still disagree somewhat another rain or rain/snow event, especially for the northern part of our area, is possible as yet another cold front moves in.
