We’ve been enjoying milder, more November-like weather over the past couple of days and it looks like that more fall-like theme will continue not only through the rest of the weekend but for next week as well. However, because it’s mid-November that also means we’ll get the occasional taste of winter every now and then and a storm system moving into the area right now will bring an element of the next season tonight and early Sunday. Expect light rain late in the evening with a transition to a rain and snow mixture well after midnight. Light snow will continue into mid-morning Sunday with half an inch or less of accumulation. It won’t add up to much in the way of snowfall, but roads and highways may become a little slick, so keep that in mind for the early portion of your Sunday. Overnight temperatures will hover around the freezing mark with a brisk south breeze.
Light snow will taper off in the mid-morning hours Sunday with a brisk southwest breeze turning to the west in the midday as a weak cold front moves through the region. Skies will remain mostly cloudy with high temperatures in the afternoon in the upper 30s which is just a few degrees cooler than Saturday’s high temperatures.
After a little sunshine Monday, clouds will again thicken as another weak storm system slides into the region from the west. A little light rain will be possible in the late afternoon before changing to snow late in the evening. Again, only a dusting of less than half an inch of accumulation is expected. High temperatures Monday will be in the upper 30s with just a light southwest breeze.
After a couple of quiet days that will feature high temperatures in the lower 40s, another storm system will bring a chance for a rain and snow mixture Wednesday night into early Thursday. Right now it doesn’t look like there will be much if any, snowfall accumulation from that system. Otherwise, it will be a blustery Thursday with high temperatures in the low to mid-30s.
The end of next week and next weekend look slightly cooler but fairly pleasant with sunshine in the area. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s which, again, is pretty typical for the second half of November.
