A gradual warm-up continues through much of the holiday week! Your Thanksgiving festivities should go uninterrupted and travel weather is looking good around the region.
A storm system is developing in the Inter-mountain West, and will deliver quite the wintry blast to the Rockies and Great Plains. As it moves towards our region, an area of high pressure delays its arrival, and allows it some time to weaken significantly. This will approach the area late this week, but not before warm and dry weather through most of Saturday. There will likely be limited moisture with this weakened system, at least at first, so showers look few and far between by late Saturday. Moisture flow may increase afterwards, lending us to a better chance of rain at times Sunday through Tuesday, with temperatures cooling down during that time frame.
Temperature Outlook: Highs in the low to mid 60s Thursday through Saturday, 50s Sunday through Wednesday. Lows in the 30s through Thursday night, and 40s Friday through Tuesday nights.
Our average high is 55°, low 32°.
