Happy Mild Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day weather has lots of clouds and mild temperatures. Tonight, especially on the east side of the Appalachians, clouds thicken with fog developing. Drizzle will be possible along the Blue Ridge. Black Friday begins gray (clouds with fog) but partial sunshine develops. Temperatures tomorrow will be several degrees warmer than today. Saturday is generally cloudy with a continuation of mild temperatures.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure is centered near Nova Scotia but wedges southwest across the Appalachians. The closest front stretches from Lake Superior into the Great Plains. Today, a southeasterly flow produces cloudiness especially on the east side of the Appalachians. Fog develops along the Blue Ridge tonight lasting into Friday morning with drizzle. All in all, it's a mild Thanksgiving Day with uneventful weather.

A mild ridge in the Southeast will be stubborn today through early next week. The front in the Great Plains will struggle then lose as it edges eastward with energy being shunted northeast into Eastern Canada. Friday the southeasterly flow becomes more southerly; when that happens, we'll see some sun and temperatures will climb. Saturday night, the front will limp through with only cloudy skies.

Behind the front, the process of a wedge building across the Southern Appalachians will recycle. Low pressure lagging behind in the Mississippi Valley will add moisture. Sunday will be cloudy and slightly cooler with periods of light rain developing, increasing Sunday night. As the wedge matures, Monday will be cloudy and cool with fog and rain at times.

The next El Nino-induced low moves out of the Eastern Pacific (Saturday) and into New Mexico by late Sunday. It will take a path northeast toward Lake Superior and Eastern Canada with an associated front sweeping eastward and arriving here Tuesday night. Rain remains in the forecast through most if not all of Tuesday.

Wednesday, clouds decrease behind Tuesday night's front. Temperatures will be cooler but not dramatically so.
