FORECAST IN DETAIL
We may be able to salvage one more pleasant day before a combo of systems tries to put a damper on our shortened work week. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny and pleasant overall -- similar to yesterday. After another shot of rain on Monday, uncertainty builds in the forecast details through Thanksgiving. One thing is more certain though, and that's that the whole of it will incorporate the chance of light showers and a good amount of gray.
Today (Sunday): We'll be caught between retreating high pressure to our northeast and developing low pressure to our southwest. While it had looked like today might be quite cloudy with a late chance for the wet stuff, it turns out the high will be strengthening as it moves away. As a result, partly to mostly sunny skies should last into afternoon. Toward evening, more clouds may begin to filter in from the southwest. We'll continue to be mild, with highs in the upper 50s and winds from the north around 5 mph.Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Clouds continue to increase overnight, and some of us (especially south) may see some patchy late rain by daybreak. Temperatures will be a bit warmer with the clouds, with lows in the low-to-mid 40s. Winds will be from the northeast at 5-10 mph.Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow (Monday): Rain arrives, likely in the form of periods of light rain and drizzle. Not really a nice day at all, quite raw and damp. Highs will likely reach no higher than the low 50s, and some may not make it out of the 40s. Winds will be light but steady, out of the northeast near 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Rain should be dwindling to more isolated showers through the night. Skies will still be overcast and lows will just dip into the mid-40s. Winds will be out of the north-northeast at around 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium
Tuesday the low-pressure area moves up the coast and away, but with no high pressure to take over, our marine air mass stays around. For us that means mostly cloudy skies, with a slight chance (20%) of some light showers or mist. Highs will be held down in the mid-50s. Overnight, more of the same with perhaps a slight increase in shower chances. Expect lows in the mid-40s. Confidence: Medium
Wednesday doesn't look much better as another slow-moving system approaches. Skies will again be mostly gray and the chances for showers continue to increase, highest north of town. Highs will depend on the system's track, likely in the mid-50s. But if it tracks more to the north, we may stay drier with some sun possibly pushing us toward 60. Confidence: Low-Medium
Our preliminary Thanksgiving Day forecast call for mostly cloudy skies and another slight chance of rain showers, with highs in the mid-50s. Confidence: Low-Medium
