GOOD for all reporting stations.

WEATHER STORY
Warm, dry days and cool to cold nights: that’s what you can expect for the next week or so! 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 through Friday.



**FROST ADVISORY**
… in effect from 3AM until 9AM Thursday for San Benito County and the inland valleys of Monterey County.

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

-Frost could kill sensitive outdoor vegetation if left uncovered.

Please note that in mountain areas, valleys within the terrain could also see frosty conditions.

Take steps now to protect animals and tender plants from the cold.

Thanksgiving (Thursday): After a chilly morning, expect mostly sunny, warm conditions throughout the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s on the coast and mid 60s to low 70s inland.

Overnight: Some high clouds returning; they won't stay long though. Expect lows in the mid 30s to mid 40s on the coast with isolated frost. Frost is likely for many inland spots with temps in the upper 20s to 30s.


Friday: Frosty in the morning once again for inland areas especially. Then, another mostly sunny, warm day with highs in the 60s-70s! Breezy at times.

Extended: More of the same through the weekend with chilly nights and very warm afternoons … for the next week or so. Rain chances look slim until at least December 4th.
