Windy Weather & Cooler Temperatures This Week

27 November 2017   Dr. Curtis James
Windy, but rain unlikely.

Forecast Discussion:

We had record warmth last week, making for a very enjoyable Thanksgiving here in Prescott! Below is a list of all the record high temperatures recorded at the Prescott Airport:

Nov. 21 73 (tied old record for the date)
Nov. 22 76
Nov. 23 78
Nov. 24 78
Nov. 25 79
Nov. 26 81

Expect cooler weather this week as the ridge breaks down and a series of troughs move through. The first trough will move through tonight, bringing some high clouds and very windy conditions. Another weaker trough will stall off the West Coast by midweek and weaken through Friday. A third trough will move through on Sunday – Monday. At this point, it does not appear that precipitation will be likely with any of these three events, but expect windy weather and/or variable clouds with each system.
