warming temperatures and rainfall moving in sunday night into monday. and that rain will be impacting us as well. so high pressure continues to move a little farther to the east. we get that return flow winds more out of the south and west so that will gradually warm us up in particular on sunday into the 50s. and sunday increasing clouds, mainly dry but you can see sunday night into monday morning, wet conditions back to work and school and then we're in the warm sector and temperatures will sky rocket into the 60s and 70s as that cold air moves a little farther to the north jet stream lifts to the north as well allowing for some milder air to move in, but as we move toward thanksgiving, some colder air will be returning. so teens and 20s tonight. 44 degrees for the high temperature tomorrow. not as cold. mid 50s by sunday and then look at monday. early morning showers, 70 degrees. mid 50s on tuesday. we're watching a coast an area of low pressure will likely develop along a stalled front.
