Cold, Canadian high pressure will build into the region today. This will mean sunny, but chilly temperatures today. Look for steady temps in the low to mid 20s. While we’ll drop into the single digits this evening, temps will gradually warm to about 18 by Friday morning.

Friday will be just fine for the die-hard shoppers. Look for partly cloudy skies and highs in the middle 30s. It will also be a good day for the beginning of the season at Ski Snowstar!

This weekend will turn very mild. Lower 50s are on the docket for Saturday with clouds and some drizzle. While we’ll have a cold shot of air Monday, much of next week looks pretty mild. Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

From First Alert Meteorologist Greg Dutra

A pretty easy forecast for our Thanksgiving, with sunshine returning shortly after sunrise but fairly stagnant temperatures. Winds will be brisk from the NW and provide near zero wind chills. Our lows bottom out in the teens by this evening, and rise headed into Black Friday. Clouds are also back for at least the early hours of Friday. Despite the clouds we warm to the upper 30s thanks to a strong wind form the southwest. We keep tacking degrees on during the weekend, topping out in the upper 40s Saturday with the help of some sunshine.

TODAY: Clearing. Cold. High: 25.

TONIGHT: Clouds return. Low: 15.

TOMORROW: Clouds early. Some late sun. High: 38.
