November 22nd, 2013 Forecast

This evening, a relatively mild night is on tap under mostly cloudy skies.  Lows will dip into the upper 30's to the north and west and into the mid-40's to the south and east.  Around the city, we're also expecting low temperatures in the mid-40's as well.  Winds will be light out of the southwest, around 5 mph.  Tomorrow, cloud cover will persist with the possibility of an isolated shower.  Tomorrow will also be fairly mild, with highs in the lower to mid-50's throughout most of the region.  Winds will pick back up out of the west at 5 to 10 mph.

While sprinkles are possible Friday, the better chance of rain showers will come Friday night, so some of those high school football playoff sames could be a little soggy.  The chance of rain does diminish for Saturday, but there is still a chance of some drizzle through the morning and afternoon as the cold front makes its way through the region.  By evening, temperatures will be dropping steadily, down from our high around 50-degrees, and some locales could also see a few snow flurries.  Old Man Winter rears his ugly head on Sunday and Monday as we tap into frigid, arctic air.  The positive is that skies will be mostly sunny both days.  However, the negative is highs will only get into the mid- to upper 30's.  Temperatures will jump into the mid-40's by Tuesday with partly cloudy skies and the chance of some mixed precipitation.  Scattered showers are also possible on Wednesday with mostly cloudy skies and high back up near 50-degrees.  By Thursday, temperatures fall back into the mid-40's with sun and clouds.
