Thankfully, sunshine is here and temperatures are bumped up with more clouds moving just to our south. This leaves us mostly sunny, with a high of 52 degrees.

A few more clouds pass through our area tonight, with a light breeze, we’re still dropping to around 29 degrees.


A few clouds begin to work their way in at times Tuesday, but a shower is really only possible in the mountains. The high temperature ticks up even more, back to seasonable, at 57 degrees.

Scattered clouds linger Tuesday night, with a low of 32 degrees by Wednesday morning, then we’ll see more sunshine and have a warmer high of 61 degrees!

Thanksgiving day starts out in the upper 30s, with more clouds throughout the day, we’re still on the warmer side with a high of 60 degrees. A spotty rain shower is possible, with more rain moving in Thursday night into Friday. We’re still seeing a 60% coverage through Friday morning, then more scattered rain and times through Friday afternoon.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, temperatures tick down in that rain and then continue to cool to the upper 40s Saturday, with a few showers leftover. That’s why the higher elevations could see spotty snowfall, but it’s spotty rain showers in the lower elevations.
