A bit cooler this evening with clear skies and a full moon. We start the evening in the 50s and drop well into the 30s overnight.

Wednesday and Thursday will remain quiet. High pressure keeps our skies clear and rain free through Thursday night.

The weather headline for us is Tropical Storm Nicole and its track that brings a soaking rain for our Veteran’s Day. Rain starts Friday morning and lasts all day into Friday night. Our weather team expects most areas could receive 1 to 2 inches of rain from Nicole, but some locally higher amounts are possible. We’ll have more updates on Nicole throughout the week.

As the tropical moisture exits, gusty northwest winds develops Saturday as we dry out for the weekend. We will be noticeably colder for the weekend with highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s by Sunday.
