Cloudy to start the week, most will stay dry

Weather

DISCUSSION: There will be more clouds around during today as temperatures return to the upper 40s. For most of us, that will be all we see through the day. However, a few quick showers will be possible south of I-64 today as a weak disturbance passes through the area.

Monday planner.

Tonight looks quiet for the most part, with just more clouds passing through the area. Lows are expected to drop into the 30s.

Calm, but cloudy tonight.

Another weak cold front arrives on Tuesday, which will help keep the clouds around. Once again, most will be dry but a few isolated showers are possible. Increased cloud cover and cooler air from the cold front will result in Tuesday’s highs being a few degrees cooler than the other days this week. Expect mid 40s. Some flurries may be possible in the higher terrain later in the evening as temperatures drop.

More dry time is expected into the middle of the week as well as high pressure builds in. This should allow more sunshine on Wednesday. The afternoon will bring more upper 40s alongside dry weather.

High pressure shifts to our southeast as our next disturbance starts to approach the area on Thursday. Most of the day does look dry, but this setup will allow for a southerly breeze to bring warmer air in. Highs will climb to the upper 50s and low 60s in the afternoon, making Thursday the warmest day of the week. Some rain does look to arrive during the evening and overnight hours.

Friday is shaping up to be a bit unsettled with some rain showers as a front moves through the area. Temperatures remain in the 50s through the day. We could see these showers linger into our Saturday before we dry out by Sunday afternoon. This could still change a bit, so we will continue to watch.

Much of November has featured temperatures that are below average, which has allowed us to feel almost like winter at times. For the most part though, our daytime and overnight temperatures have stayed above the freezing mark of 32 degrees and most of our precipitation has fallen as rain. Changes are in store once over the next few weeks as snow becomes a more regular occurrence. To get a general idea of amounts, our average snowfall for the month of December is 12.9 inches (We normally pick up just between 2 to 3 inches in November).
