A small bubble of high pressure hanging over the area at the surface is preventing any rain from reaching the ground before evaporating. Instead, an upper-air disturbance will cross the area tonight and early Monday with clouds. Once the disturbance bypasses us, skies will become mostly sunny by Monday afternoon, which will permit temperatures to rise well into the 70s. As a ridge of high pressure builds through a deep layer of the atmosphere, we'll see dry and exceptionally warm conditions continue into Wednesday. In fact, the record high of 80 degrees on Tuesday is in jeopardy. A strong cold front will approach Thanksgiving Day with a good threat of showers and thunderstorms. We'll probably get one dry and cool day behind the front on Friday before more clouds and the threat of rain arrive again next weekend. All of the gory details are in the video weather blog.
