Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, November 20, 2014 at 3:03PM

Gusty Thursday

A front moves through today from the west. The only effects of note are clouds (mainly west) and gusty winds through tonight. The air behind this front is not much cooler; so, we'll continue gradual moderation of temperatures with the exception of a cold Friday night in valleys. Clouds increase Saturday afternoon. Spotty light rain or drizzle is possible late Saturday night; then Sunday promises to be a rainy day will gradually milder temperatures after a cool start.

Forecast Discussion

Temperatures Wednesday night were steady or rose slowly ahead of a front moving through from the west today. We'll have lingering clouds this afternoon (especially west) with clearing skies this evening. The most noticeable effect of the front will be winds gusting to 40 mph through tonight.

Temperatures are making a slow climb out of Tuesday's very deep hole. The air behind today's front is not that much colder than what's ahead of it. Friday will be chilly and clear. Valley locations Friday night will be much colder than mountaintops as winds calm.

High pressure slides from the Ohio Valley to off the Mid Atlantic Coast Saturday and Sunday. It will wedge into the Southern Appalachians keeping temperatures below seasonal averages. Low pressure builds in the center of the country Sunday and moves to Lake Superior Monday. It pulls lots of moisture out of the Gulf of Mexico Sunday. Clouds increase here Saturday afternoon. Spotty light rain or drizzle is possible late Saturday night; then there's no avoiding a rainy Sunday. Temperatures will be chilly as precipitation beings early Sunday morning; so, it's possible that valley locations along the Blue Ridge could begin with light freezing rain or freezing drizzle. Freezing precipitation will be brief; so I took that mention out of the daily forecast boxes. Temperatures gradually rise Sunday right through Sunday night.

The main band of moisture lifts to our north Sunday night, but the front will not arrive until Monday evening. We kept the chance of showers in Monday's forecast (especially Monday night) with the front still in the vicinity. Monday will be unseasonably mild--when was the last time we said that?!

Tuesday looks partly cloudy with temperatures near average for the date.

Looking ahead to Thanksgiving Travel... A secondary front with colder air arrives Tuesday night. Low pressure will move northeast off the Atlantic Coast Wednesday. We left Wednesday's forecast dry; however, flurries or snow showers are not impossible early Wednesday morning. Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday look dry and with temperatures near seasonal averages. Rain is possible again by Friday night.
