November 24th, 2012 Forecast

For the rest of your Black Friday, skies will slowly start clouding up as a cold front nears the region.  Most short-range models don't have any precipitation in the area, but I'm leaving in an isolated shower in the overnight.  Temperatures will be in the upper 30's in and around the city, closer to the 40-degree mark to the south and east and in the mid-30's to the north and west.  Winds will be shifting from the southwest to the northwest at 5 to 15 mph, becoming more breezy closer to day break.  The breezy conditions will continue tomorrow, helping to bring those temperatures down even under mostly sunny skies.  Highs not moving a whole lot, into the mid-40's pretty much all over the board, with the exception to the extreme south and east when some highs could venture into the upper 40's.  Winds will continue to be out of the northwest at 10 to 20 mph, sustained.

Sunday, winds calm a bit but still chilly out with high only in the mid-40's again but still under mostly sunny skies.  Monday, we start to see some changes, including from that potential storm Tom talked about earlier.  We start off mostly sunny and end up mostly cloudy with some showers moving in late.  While to storm intensity looks like a bust, I still think we'll see some showery activity over a 36 hour period or so.  Monday night into Tuesday, there might even be a snow flurry mixing in with some of the rain showers, nothing to write home about.  Tuesday just looks gray, wet and raw.  Scattered showers under overcast skies and highs in the mid-40's looks like the rule of the day.  Wednesday, we could see a few lingering showers but by the afternoon, skies clear out, but temperatures still remain in the mid-40's.  Friday looks clear and cool.
