Breezy Today, Cold Stays

Colder air promptly moved in this morning on a brisk northwest wind and stays with us the remainder of the week. Clouds gradually decrease as the afternoon progresses. Thanksgiving Eve, Day and Black Friday all look very nice with no surprises. The best way to say it..."It will feel like Thanksgiving". Wet weather returns Friday night, possibly beginning as a wintry mix, before transitioning to rain and ending Saturday.

Forecast Discussion

The takeaway now through Black Friday is for seasonably cool conditions, but nothing out of the ordinary. It's a rather nice (bland) forecast across the Southeast for such a busy week. We're Thankful for it.

Chilly high pressure wedges down the Appalachians Friday. Clouds increase Friday afternoon as temperatures stay rather cold. Precipitation develops Friday night as low pressure heads northeast from the Gulf. It may begin as a wintry mix, but we expect a transition to all rain as the night progresses.

Saturday is cool, but not as chilly. We're optimistic rain ends Saturday afternoon as the low moves up the East Coast. We'll have a brief mild-up Sunday ahead of another low pressure center that cuts over the Ohio Valley. A brief round of light rain is possible overnight into Monday morning. Much colder air returns thereafter.
