After a blustery day, the strongest winds are behind us. Next comes the coldest air so far this season. Gusts have topped 30-40 mph at times but will gradually weaken overnight. This will allow temperatures to drop into the mid to upper 20s. Even with just a light breeze, wind chills will feel like upper teens and low 20s around sunrise Wednesday.

Wind chills dip to the teens and 20s early Wednesday.

WEDNESDAY

Dry weather returns along with the sunshine Wednesday. Afternoon highs only reach the 40s and the winds won’t be as gusty either. The overnight temperatures will be the big story again Thursday morning as lows slip to the 20s.

THURSDAY & FRIDAY

Temperatures gradually begin to warm back up late this week under sunny skies. Afternoon highs reach the mid/upper 60s by Friday which lingers into the weekend where highs may even get to the low 70s across the Southside.

THE WEEKEND

At this time, the weekend forecast remains very quiet and unseasonably warm. Afternoon highs return to around 70° both days.

NEXT WEEK

The week of Thanksgiving begins with a few showers Monday but we remain mild. Sunshine will return behind the front as temperatures cool back to around normal for Tuesday and Wednesday.

By the middle of the week, shower chances return and Thanksgiving itself is trending wetter. There’s still plenty of time to nail down the details and impacts.

Next week is trending wetter for the week of Thanksgiving.
