Discussion...
dry weather will prevail through the entire forecast period. A
couple weak frontal passages will keep temperatures within a few
degrees of the seasonal normals through Thanksgiving day. Beyond
that time...models have come into much better agreement on a
warmer solution...with much above normal temperatures possible
Friday and especially Saturday. A cold front will temporarily
bring cooler weather Sunday and Monday but much above normal
temperatures are likely to return by next Tuesday...just beyond
the range of this forecast. Rain chances are also likely to
increase by that time as strong southerly low level winds return
Gulf moisture to the area ahead of the next storm system that is
due in around the middle of next week.

Went a bit warmer than guidance for high temperatures Wednesday
but otherwise stayed close to the guidance numbers the next couple
days.
