Wednesday Night: Morning showers with passing cold front; Cooler weather to come

Weather

Tonight: Clouds will increase overnight and spotty showers will be possible, as well as some areas of fog. Low temperatures in the lower 60s.  

Thursday: Rain coverage does not look to be too impressive with the cold front, but the best chance for rain will be during the morning hours. Morning rain chance is around 30-40% and then there is a 20% chance for rain after lunch. High temperatures will be in the low and mid 70s in the morning and around lunch before temperatures drop into the 60s and 50s during afternoon and evening hours. Winds will pick up out of the north around 10-15 mph. Overnight temperatures will be much cooler in the low and mid 40s.   

Friday Morning: A Partial Lunar Eclipse will be visible overnight Thursday/Friday morning. The penumbral eclipse begins at 12:02 AM, the partial eclipse begins at 1:18 AM (moon is turning red), the greatest eclipse (maximum) will be at 3:02 AM, the partial eclipse ends at 4:47 AM, and the penumbral eclipse ends at 6:03 AM. Look toward the western horizon! This will be the longest partial lunar eclipse in nearly 600 years. 

Friday & Weekend: Friday will be nice and cool with highs in the mid 60s. Overnight temperatures in the lower 40s. We will begin to warm up over the weekend into the lower 70s on Saturday and mid 70s on Sunday. A few showers will be possible late on Sunday ahead of another cold front.  

 Next Week: The cold front will clear the area on Monday, but a few showers will be possible with it. The front will knock our temperatures into the upper 60s on Monday and lower 60s on Tuesday. Mornings will be back down in the 40s, as well. Early outlook for Thanksgiving through the weekend shows some rain around on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but it’s still too early to tell. We will be watching the potential closely!
