Nice Til Sunday

Pleasant Thanksgiving weather continues and even gets nicer. Temperatures take a step warmer today, and another step warmer Saturday. Black Friday is pretty bright actually with decreasing clouds and ample afternoon sunshine. Clouds return Saturday but will not spoil the "nice party". We'll pay for the current pleasant weather with rain developing Sunday, continuing Monday, ... and Tuesday. Enjoy the nice weather while you can!

Forecast Discussion

High pressure dominates the Carolinas today. Enjoy two unusually pleasant late-November days. Clouds decrease today, then increase again tomorrow. Nice rules!

But we'll pay... A cold front stretches from Michigan to Texas, with nasty, icy weather in the Great Plains. That front will press slowly east but wash out as it reaches the Southern Appalachians Sunday. The core of energy will stall far to our southwest. After the front fizzles, high pressure in the northeast will wedge down the Appalachians with a flow of moisture arriving from the Gulf. Finally, the next front from the west will move through early Wednesday.

The price? Rain develops Sunday. Temperatures will be gradually cooler Sunday and Monday. Rain will continue off and on Monday and Tuesday. Add fog Monday and Tuesday.

Computer guidance differs on how quickly the front moves through Wednesday. We took the more optimistic path in today's forecast--maybe a shower Wednesday then decreasing clouds.

A low from the Gulf will be close on the heels of Wednesday's front. It is expected to be near Jacksonville Fla by late Thursday. Clouds increase Thursday afternoon and rain is possible again Thursday night.
