Frosty the Turkey Man

GOOD to MODERATE for all reporting stations.

Warm, dry days and cool to cold nights: that’s what you can expect for the next week or so! Temperatures cooled a bit behind Tuesday’s dry cold front, but building high pressure will help warm our afternoons through the weekend. In the meantime, the cool, dry, long nights will be cold, especially inland where frost will be possible. No major weather events expected around the country through the weekend, though fire danger will be very high in Southern California Wednesday through Friday.

Overnight: Clear and cool lows in the upper 30s to around 50ºF on the coast and upper 20s to upper 30s inland. Dry northerly winds over the hills could gust up to 30mph.

… in effect from 3AM Wednesday until 9AM Wednesday for the valleys and sheltered areas in southern Monterey & southern San Benito Counties.

Overnight low temperatures for the interior valleys will be in low to mid 30s tonight and will result in frost formation.

Several hours of temperatures at freezing are expected early Wednesday morning.

Frost could kill sensitive outdoor vegetation if left uncovered.

Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold.

Wednesday: Offshore winds may be as strong as 20-30mph over the hills through the day, then will ease in the evening. Otherwise, expect mostly sunny, tranquil conditions for most areas with highs in the 60s to low 70s.

Thanksgiving (Thursday): Chilly in the morning with frosty conditions for inland valleys. Then, mostly sunny and warmer with highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s.

Extended: Warm days and chilly nights through the weekend under mostly clear skies. Next rain chances may hold off until after December 5th!

LOW: 44ºF
