    Midday Forecast: Nov. 5, 2019

    You may want to pull out the puffy jackets and scarves as wind chills approach the lower 30s and the end of the week.

    These lower temperatures mean there's a slight chance of light snow on Monday, Nov. 11, which is Veterans Day. Any accumulation would be minor. Storm Team4 will continue to monitor the chance of snow since it's still a week away. The average first snowfall is Dec. 11.

    Temperatures this November are running 6 degrees below normal, and the cold will stick around for at least the next 10 days.

    For now, spotty showers are expected Tuesday, but any rain we get won't have a big impact on the day. Afternoon highs will reach the low to mid 60s.

    Northwest winds overnight will help to clear the sky and push temperatures into the 30s to around 40 by Wednesday morning. Wednesday will be sunny and cool with highs in the low to mid 50s.

    Rain is possible again Thursday, with a stronger cold front. This one has more moisture to work with and much colder air behind it. After a sunny start Thursday morning with temperatures around 40, clouds will increase and limit afternoon highs to the mid/upper 50s. Rain will become likely by early evening and stick around until the Friday morning commute.

    A gusty northwest wind will return before noon on Friday. It will help to bring sunshine back but it will also keep afternoon highs only in the low 40s.

    Most areas will be below freezing again by Saturday morning, and the day will be sunny and cold.

    Sunday will be a bit milder, with highs in the low 50s, but clouds will be moving by later in the day.

    Monday is Veterans Day, and the forecast looks wet and cold enough for at least a chance of a rain/snow mix. Storm Team4 will be keeping a close watch on it.
