Another very cold morning will help to keep afternoon temperatures on the cooler side today. The Coast will be the warmest of the region as the Chetco Effect is enhanced again. The ridges will continue to see winds staying fairly breezy through the second half of the day before dying down for the overnight hours.
The weekend is looking nice for all areas. A blocking pattern, known as a Rex Block, is in place over the West. This consists of a very large area of high pressure, located north of an area of low pressure (that low pressure is positioned over the Southwest at this time). This will break down by Tuesday of next week and allow the storm door to swing open.
If you’re traveling for the holiday next week rain showers are likely Wednesday and Thursday for Thanksgiving, however this is no significant storm. The good news is snow levels will stay fairly high, so no major travel impacts are anticipated in the higher passes. The showers will produce light to moderate rain over the region, but they will be spotty.
