Thanksgiving as well as Black Friday are right around the corner so what does Mother Nature have cooking for us in the forecast? Not only are we going to continue to see warm temperatures but we're also going to see generally nice conditions as we go into the start of the last weekend of November. It looks as though the jetstream is still going to remain quiet even as we go into the start of next week... however, we are watching the 28th, 29th and even 30th timeframe as long range models are suggesting a low pressure system will move through the Northern Plains and it could bring our next real chance for precipitation.

A low pressure system is beginning to move in overhead, replacing a high pressure system that kept us cooler overnight, bringing with it warmer air. Compared to yesterday, many of us were 10-20 degrees warmer than yesterday with some places being 40 degrees warmer than yesterday. Southerly winds, sometimes breezy, did bring up the warm air across the southwest today... for Thanksgiving we are going to see even warmer air with some spots climbing close, if not climbing into, the low 70s. The unseasonably warm air sticks around into Black Friday as well before this low pressure system moves on eastward.

Once that low does move out, Saturday and Sunday are going to be a little bit cooler than Friday however, the Sioux Empire will still remain between 5-10 degrees warmer than normal for this time of year. Even though this low pressure system will have some moisture associated with it, it looks as though we'll skip out on seeing any rain or wintry mix as this low pressure system moves on out. Into Sunday, our winds will pick up out of the south again and we'll see another brief warm up going into the last couple days of November.

Lows tonight will dip into the 20s and 30s with generally clear skies. Some fog may develop across the Missouri River Valley with winds turning out of the northwest and remaining light.

For Thanksgiving we'll see temperatures climb into the 40s, 50s, 60s and even low 70s with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies. Winds are going to be out of the southwest and remain light.

Have a happy and relaxing Thanksgiving as well as Black Friday!
