Thanks, Lady Cougars, for the magic
Every so often we are reminded that it isn’t always the team that finished first that is the biggest winner. The Burlington Lady Cougars volleyball team gave us such a reminder this season.

Mild, dry and sunny workweek ahead
Once again another classic strong winds day across the entire High Plains in which we experienced sustained winds in the 30’s accompanied by intermittent gusts in excess of 40 mph. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but these blustery conditions will continue into tomorrow afternoon, although slightly weaker with winds in the low to mid 20’s and localized stronger gusts. Furthermore, temperatures tomorrow will be slightly warmer in the low 60’s for the bulk of the region with likely upper 60’s if not low 70’s for the southeastern panhandle. Robust down-sloping component to the jet stream tomorrow afternoon will encourage crystal clear skies void of any precipitation as well. Thankfully, winds appear to subside comparatively through the workweek along with a gradual warming trend in the mid to upper 60’s and lower 70’s for the mid and late workweek. An unceasing sunny and dry environment remains likely for the extended forecast too.

Possible rain and snow mix for the end of November
We are tracking chilly temperatures for the High Plains this morning. Patchy fog and low stratus clouds will be present during the morning hours. Be cautious on your morning commute to school and work. Today’s afternoon temperatures will moderate into the 40s and low 50s. We are anticipating the upper-level system to push through the area during the morning and afternoon. The primary type of precipitation from the wintry mix will be light rain showers. The light snow/flurry precipitation will affect our northwestern and northern counties. If we receive any great amounts of snow accumulation, it will more than likely be near half of an inch to an inch. The Storm Prediction Center has most of the viewing area under the General Thunderstorm risk. We could expect small hail and strong wind gusts from the thunderstorms embedded in the showers. The system will move quickly towards the northeast today and exit the viewing area tonight.
