11/17 Ryan’s Thursday Afternoon Forecast

It was warm and sunny on this gorgeous Thursday afternoon and we can expect at least one more day of similar conditions before cooler temperatures arrive. The ridge axis (overhead earlier) continues sliding East making room for another frontal system to come roaring out of the Plains, dropping daytime temperatures ten degrees or more overnight. The front is expected to move through late Friday night and continue through Saturday morning, and while some showers are possible not much rain is expected. Saturday and Sunday will be breezy and cool as cold air advection from the NW brings in the cooler, drier continental air mass. Sunday and Sunday night are expected to be the coldest, with the latter dropping into the upper 30s along the water, and inland temperatures flirting with freezing. Temperatures rebound quickly, reaching the low 70s by Tuesday, and we’re expecting a shortwave trough to move though late Wednesday, leading to a chance of rain and a few clouds as Thanksgiving arrives.

Tropical disturbance still basically motionless, and has yet to develop any tropical characteristics. Weekend development into a tropical depression is likely though.
