FRIDAY: With high pressure settling east of the region, flow off the Gulf of Mexico will allow for temperatures to gradually trend warmer. Highs will sneak into the middle 70s by the afternoon hours, more akin to late October than mid-late November. Amid mostly to partly clear skies, we’ll drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s by early Saturday.
WEEKEND PLANNER: We’ll remain warm through the weekend ahead – especially for mid-late November standard. Expect mostly sunny skies through Saturday with highs in the middle 70s, after starting off in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Similarly, to Saturday’s temperature regime, Sunday will follow suit, though clouds will gradually thicken through the day as our next weather maker approaches the area – offering a chance for showers, mainly after sunset.
EXTENDED FORECAST: The week of Thanksgiving turns a bit more active after several weeks of tranquil weather over the region. In the wake of our first system, skies will clear and temperatures will cool into the 60s for Monday. Our next system will be hot on its heels – moving in through late Tuesday into Wednesday, bringing in more opportunities for rain and storms. A few of the storms late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning could be gusty. The system will exit through Wednesday – ushering dry and mild weather in time for Thanksgiving Thursday.
