Evening Update: Favorable Conditions to Begin December

The last day of November was another beautiful day as temperatures rose to the upper 50s. The beginning of December looks to be on par with what we expect for this time of year, coupled with ample sunshine.


Clouds will increase as a weak cold front sweeps through bringing a chance of scattered showers to sprinkle the area, primarily in the late evening before midnight. Lows will be close to 40 with light winds becoming northwest 5 to 8 mph after midnight. Clouds will begin to break up by early tomorrow morning as high pressure builds.

Tomorrow (Friday):

Friday will be another beautiful day with sunny skies with north winds at 7 – 10 mph. Although we have north winds, the temperatures should push back into the lower to mid 50s tomorrow. Tomorrow night will be mostly clear and allow temperatures to fall to the freezing mark.

The Weekend: 

The weekend in general is looking very pleasant continuing the mostly clear skies and seasonal temperatures. Saturday and Sunday both look formidable as we will see temps in the 50s both days, with Sunday being slightly warmer as we reach the mid 50s. Don’t be fooled though, as a low of 35 degrees will still feel chilly this Saturday night. Enjoy these temperatures now because there looks to be a significant cool down next week. Stay tuned to UMD weather for more information…is a white Christmas in store for our future?
