AgWeatherNet Weekly Weather Outlook for November 18 to November 24, 2017

Variable and Active Weather Expected; Very Mild for the Thanksgiving Holiday

Nic Loyd, Meteorologist, 509-786-9357

After some relatively cool spells in October and early November, Washington's weather will be headed in the opposite direction as we approach the Thanksgiving Holiday. It presently appears that next Wednesday and Thursday could be quite mild, as 60s are possible for highs in certain areas, and 40s or even low 50s are possible for low temperatures.

In the meantime, Saturday looks to be a mostly dry day for many locations. However, changeable and generally active conditions are likely for much of this period, as intervals of rain and breezes are expected. The first system is forecast to cross the region on Sunday, with rain for especially western Washington. After a brief break later on Monday, another wet and warmer disturbance is anticipated for the mid week time frame. Unsettled weather may persist through the end of the week. Above normal temperatures should be a general rule, especially for the mid to latter part of next week. Overall, a relatively warm and somewhat wet pattern is set to arrive on Sunday.
