Wednesday, November 21
There is a developing Low Pressure System in the Northern plains, moving to the east. Along this system expect rain chances to be on the rise with increasing clouds. Elsewhere there is an extensive ridge of High Pressure that is influencing the entire eastern half of the nation. Otherwise, there is some scattered rain activity in the Southern Plains.

There was some patchy fog that eroded early this morning as daytime heating got underway. Otherwise, this vast and strong ridge of high pressure that anchored over area continues to bring sunny skies and pleasant conditions to Cenla.
The clear skies are not only providing us with pleasant conditions. We will also see daytime highs get a little warmer as the surface is able to heat up more efficiently than with clouds.
The ridge of high pressure will begin to move East of the area tonight. There some chances for upper level clouds to move in after the front, this will inhibit radiational cooling as the clouds will act like a blanket and trap heat against the surface.
Southerly winds and increasing moisture will keep highs a little lower on Friday. However, rain chances will become slight as another upper level system moves through the Northern Plains and into the Great Lakes Region. This front looks like it will be pretty weak. Global models and guidance both continue to trend cooler with the post frontal air mass.
For the rest of the day,
Expect to see plenty of sunshine, coupled with a pleasant feel. Afternoon highs will climb well above normal and into the mid to upper 70's. The average range for this time of the year is 44/67. Winds will also be very light and variable. 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 the rest of the day. Tomorrow (Turkey Day) we will see gradually increasing clouds, followed by a slight chance for isolated rain on Black Friday. This will make the temperatures drop for a few days. The next significant rain chances will come with the beginning of the work week and another front.
TODAY... Sunny skies and comfortable. Highs 73-79. North wind 2-10 mph.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT... Fair skies and cool. Lows 41-47. Little or no wind.
