Pinpoint Weather: Scattered showers set to move in tonight, cooling trend ahead of Thanksgiving holiday

Weather Blog

I hope you enjoyed the nice weather on Saturday, because today’s weather…not quite as nice.

Clouds have already moved in and we’ll remain Mostly Cloudy through the day ahead of a cold front that is moving in from the west. We’ll also notice temperatures will be a good 10 degrees or so cooler than what we saw on Saturday.

We’re not anticipating a widespread rain event, just some scattered showers that will produce up to one-tenth of an inch of rain in most locations tonight.

West slope communities in the Highlands could see some snow, but those accumulations are expected to be light (an inch or less, generally speaking).

Once the front passes, we’ll see the winds kick up slightly as the temperatures drop closer to and even a few degrees below normal to start the new, short work week.

Our next chance for rain comes in Wednesday afternoon and into the evening. The good news is, the latest models indicate that the rain should exit by Thursday morning, so Thanksgiving does look dry – and even a little milder, so look for temperatures to warm from the lower and middle 50s on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday back up toward the lower and middle 60s across the region by Thanksgiving Day as well as Black Friday.

We’re still officially in hurricane season, but the National Hurricane Center has backed off a bit on potential development of a system in the southeast Atlantic.

Officially, hurricane season ends in a week-and-a-half (at the end of November), but that doesn’t mean we should stop watching the tropics. It is 2020, after all, so we’ll keep an eye out on things, but right now, the tropics are quiet.

Enjoy your Sunday!
