Forecast: Unusually Beautiful Weather Continues With Temps In 70s

This article is more than 4 years old.

Today's another stunning day, especially for November. Though most of you are heading to or already at work, these are the days you want to make every effort to get outside at least for a few minutes. It’s not every year we see so many days in the lower 70s within first week of November.

As southwesterly winds continue this morning they will carry warm and even slightly moist air into the region. It won’t be humid, but there is enough moisture in the air keeping that crisp autumn feeling out of the picture.

One of the reasons we all can relate to the term "feel of fall," is the dryness of the air is typically felt by now. When the moisture in the air drops, your skin is able to evaporate moisture more efficiently, in turn making you feel cooler. In the summer, the dew points are often seen at over 60 degrees, and the atmosphere is filled with more moisture and loses the chill of the colder months.

Eventually this weekend, a new air mass is going to bring temperatures back down to levels more typical of fall. By Sunday, temperatures will hit seasonal averages.

I still don’t see any measureable rain in sight. Although there could be a brief shower tonight and again Friday evening. Most of you likely won't see any rain.

There are some signs of significant rain at the end of next week, but this is a long ways off and a lot can change by then, of course.

Friday’s record high is 73 degrees — and we might break it. Looks like it’s time to head back to the beach. Have a great day!


Today: Mostly sunny and warm. Highs 68-73.

Tonight: Very mild with lots of clouds. Lows 55-60.

Friday: Lots of clouds, but some sunny breaks. Late day shower possible. Highs in the lower 70s.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 60.

Sunday: Sunny, with a high near 50.

Monday: Sunny, with a high near 55.
