It was another chilly morning, although all locations remained above freezing. Perhaps a little frost north of the Lake. The real Arctic cold is beginning to retreat farther north and models indicate this will remain in Canada and the northern US for the next 7+ days. So for us, no freezes or frost coming back...for now. However, the heat also isn't returning. We look to become more normal for this time of year for Thanksgiving week.Highs will climb to near 70° today and about the same tomorrow and Monday. Even behind a weak cold front early Tuesday, temps will not fall a great deal. May see a few isolated showers Monday with the approaching front. But perhaps a better chance Thanksgiving morning as a developing system approaches from the west. The Euro keeps this feature far enough south to keep most rain/storms offshore, whereas the GFS brings this almost directly over us. For now, we'll split the difference with a 40% chance for showers/storms Thanksgiving morning with the main focus on the Southshore and toward the coast.
