Wet & windy for Thanksgiving

Very wet and windy weather will bring major travel impacts to your Thanksgiving holiday.

Posted: Nov 22, 2018 6:55 AM

Get ready for more rain, snow, and stronger winds on the way for your Thanksgiving Day Forecast. There are several warnings going into place or staying in place for today. The Flash Flood Watch is still in effect for areas closest to burn scars in our region through Friday morning, a Winter Storm Warning is in place above 6000' for heavy snowfall, and a Wind Advisory is in place from noon today through 4pm Friday for the valley and portions of the mountains. Rain has continued overnight, but we are expecting a bit of a lull in wet weather through the morning. More rain and snow will return this afternoon, and will likely be heavier than the wet weather we've had so far. Temperatures will top out in the mid to high 50's in the valley, and in the low 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Snow will be down to as low as 5000' tonight, and mountain travel may be treacherous. Winds will be out of the South to 20mph today, and gusts could top out at around 45mph.

The heavy rain and gusty South winds will continue on Friday. Temperatures will become slightly warmer, and most of the wet weather will taper off on Friday night. There is a lingering chance for showers in the mountains this weekend, but confidence is high that the valley will stay dry. Valley areas will be cloudy, with high temperatures ranging from the high 50's to low 60's. We'll stay dry through Monday, but another wet weather system is expected to arrive on Tuesday into Wednesday of next week.
