MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT FORECAST DETAILS: Enjoy mostly sunny daytime skies and mostly clear nighttime skies. Despite the bright skies, light northerly breezes will help keep temperatures quite cool for Monday afternoon. Expect highs in the mid 50s to around 60... below the November 20 average of 67. The sun will set at an early 5:05 p.m. and, amid light or calm winds and the aforementioned clear skies, temperatures ought to be able to quickly and efficiently drop the potentially frosty 30s overnight.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Tuesday will likely have partly or variably cloudy skies, rain chances on the lower side - 10 to 20% - and seasonable 60s for highs. Wednesday, Thanksgiving Day, and Friday will have variably to mostly cloudy skies and rain chances in the 30% range. Some computer modeling suggests even higher rain chances could mix in for Tuesday night and early Wednesday... a development we'll continue to keep an eye on. Daytime temperatures will likely continue to be in the 50s and 60s in this period.

TROPICS: New tropical storm formation is not expected in the Atlantic Basin - including the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean - Monday or Tuesday. November is the final official month of Atlantic Hurricane Season.
