Ben's Weather Forecast (updated Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27th @ 7:00am © 2014):
It looks like warm fall weather headed into our Thanksgiving Holiday weekend with above normal temperatures as highs top out in the mid to upper 60's today, possibly breaking our record of 65 set back in 1977, while overnight lows remain closer to average, cooling to the 20's, except warmer at resort level due to inversion for poor snowmaking @ local resorts. High pressure will break down Friday through the weekend allowing temperatures to cool back into the 50's with an increase in high clouds, especially by Sunday where even a few sprinkles are possible late in the day as mid & upper level moisture increases from the south. Monday it looks like our potent low pressure system will be on approach, tapping into subtropical moisture with rain developing late; gusty south winds also increasing to 15-30mph. Rain likely Tuesday and could be heavy at times, unfortunately this won't be a particularly cold system, due to the slow progression and strong southerly flow out ahead it, snow levels may start off very high, around 10,000 feet until lowering sometime late Tuesday or Wednesday morning to near 6,500ft. upon frontal passage. The big question remains, when will snow levels fall and will most of the precip be over by the time it does. With all this in mind, it's apparent this will be a very wet system with at least a couple inches of rain locally (great for the lake down 12') before we see a change over to snow, where at least a few inches are also still possible by Wednesday. All these variables can and will likely change, particularly timing as each model run is slowing down the onset of precip, making a big difference in our weather next week, should snow levels drop sooner expect a significant amount of snow vs. rain, etc. Still a developing situation so check back often for updates as this event draws near and Happy Thanksgiving!

Good Morning!
