WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

- Enjoy a continuation of quiet, dry mid-November weather - actually, there will be very little day to day change; NO activity on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar through Friday …

- We'll be within a degree, or two, of "seasonal normal temperatures;" both the afternoon high and the overnight low, for at least the next couple of days

- A slight warming trend will return to the forecast toward the end of the week - by Friday, we’ll be very close to topping out at 80°

- Overall - looking ahead: the main weather story will occur over the weekend - with the approach of another (more substantial!) cold front …

- This time, we ARE expecting "noticeable" changes - one, increasing clouds and a modest coverage of rain; and two, the start of a downward temperature trend!

- As we head into Thanksgiving week, it is quite possible we could wake Monday morning to readings in the upper 30°s!
