Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

A sharp front will pass Saturday night into Sunday bringing cooler and drier days in the forecast period. As the Thanksgiving holiday week approaches, plans will likely require you to be out and about in the elements. . ....and the vast majority of the hours and days ahead are looking mostly dry and seasonably cool. Thanks for trusting your First Alert Weather Team on television, the web, and the WECT Weather App for all of your forecast details... 

SATURDAY NIGHT DETAILS: For the remainder of the afternoon and early evening, expect partly cloudy skies. Shower chances will stay under 20% during the day while overnight hours will trend to about 30%. Lows will stay in the upper 50s and low 60s amid feisty southwest winds which could gust over 20 mph.

SUNDAY FORECAST DETAILS:. A few lingering showers are possible in the morning, although shower chances will rapidly settle back to 0% as dry and increasingly cool west and northwest winds sweep across the area. Afternoon highs will be in the cooler 60s and lows will fall to the 30s. Some backyards may develop frosty or even freezing conditions through the overnight. 

THANKSGIVING WEEK TRENDS: Monday through Wednesday ought to feature fine pre-holiday errand and travel weather locally and regionally with dryness, daytime temperatures in the 50s and 60s, and nights in the 40s or possibly 30s. At this time, Thanksgiving and Black Friday appear as though they'll feature a 10-20% chance for rain with seasonably cool weather.

TROPICS: November is the final official month of Atlantic Hurricane Season and, statistically, a relatively inactive month for tropical storms. That said, the National Hurricane Center is monitoring a broad area of disturbed weather in the southwestern Caribbean Sea that stands a low chance to organize and develop this weekend.
