Forecast: Windy Conditions Friday, Colder Air Starts The Weekend

Friday morning is actually quite mild and any parades will go off without a hitch. Temperatures are going to reach their maximum levels for the day around noon and then, as a cold front pushes off the coast, they will fall. Today is a windy day as well, lets call it blustery.

If you are headed out Friday night expect a chilly evening, it will be the kind of night you'll want to have a jacket, hat and gloves if you are going to be walking around any length of time.

The weather continues to be rather boring from my perspective. The lack of storminess is bad for the drought, but also isn't very interesting from a forecasting standpoint. I probably shouldn't write this or we will end up with a horrible December.

However, the longer range models just don't have much in the way of rain. There's a small indication of something sometime in the middle or later part of next week, but these forecasts so far in advance are often incorrect.

If the drought does continue through the winter, it will not only bring lots of problems early in the spring, it will be a lower snow season as well. That isn't a prediction, but something I am certainly watching.
