    Colder This Weekend, Stormy Early Next Week

    11/21/2012, 7:53:34 PM

    The weather looks enjoyable across the South for Thanksgiving, though later in the day and into the night it will turn stormy over parts of Oklahoma and Arkansas as a front arrives. The front will do less farther east, but it will push through the whole region eventually and much cooler air will be found behind it. Actually, for some the word "colder" is more appropriate. So much colder, in fact, that some snow will be seen in the Appalachians. It looks as though good return flow early next week will result in a warmup but at the same time another storm moves in, so I'm worried about severe storms through the first part of next week. After that it will get quieter and colder again for a while, and the weather pattern may become favorable for one last hurrah for this season from the tropics just as the season is ending.
