Tuesday, November 20
A weak cold front is fizzling out over the Eastern U.S. and a shallow dome of high pressure is building in and will meander over LA for the rest of the day. A deeper ridge of high pressure will build in from the west, tomorrow. This feature will stick around through Thursday (Thanksgiving) and give way to a weak cold front that is developing in the plains later today. Elsewhere, not much is going on across the nation

The tail end of a weak cold front that pushed through Central Louisiana, overnight. This cold front did not bring any significant rain chances or cooler temperatures. However we did see some patchy fog, the cloud cover and wind changes that are commonly associated with a front.
As the deep ridge of high pressure builds in, dry air will also move in. This will bring us a cloud free sky and northerly flow. It will also allow daytime heating to bring highs well above season normal.
On average we see a high of 67/low 44. For the next couple of days, we are expected to stay 8-10 degrees above this seasonal range.
The sheared out remnants of a LPS will move out, across the southern plains and erode this ridge on Thanksgiving. Low rain chances will be on the board for Friday as it moves over our area.
For the rest of the day,
Expect to see continued clearing skies becoming Sunny, coupled with seasonably warm conditions and a light to variable wind out of the North and NE at times. Temperatures will top out through 70's through the day and rain chances are not even on the board.
Overnight, we will see temperatures drop well into the 40's with a light and variable wind and clear skies. So, chilly conditions are expected, again.
For the rest of the 7day planner
This deep ridge of high pressure will continue to build and maintain control of our forecast through Turkey Day (Thursday). A cold front will move through on (Black) Friday and only bump temperatures down a bit.
TODAY...Mostly cloudy skies to start the day as the tail end of a weak cold front moves through. Followed by clearing skies, with skies becoming sunny coupled with a comfortable feel. Highs 72-78. East, becoming North wind 2-10mph.
TUESDAY NIGHT...Fair skies and chilly. Lows 40-46. Little to no wind.
