After clouds cleared off the Plateau this morning, everybody has
gone under full sunshine this afternoon.  Problem is, with last
night`s dry frontal passage and northwest flow aloft, afternoon
temperatures are struggling to get to 50.  In the same vain, with

sunshine and temperatures a few degrees below normal.

After Turkey Day, it looks like we will have almost week`s worth of
temperature forecasting ahead.  Completely dry conditions are
expected through the Thanksgiving weekend, even though a frontal
system will pass through the mid-state Friday night.  The biggest
impact from that frontal passage will be Friday night and Saturday
morning clouds and a few wind gusts on Saturday afternoon.

A surface high pressure ridge will continue to build across the
Mid-State over the forecast period, producing VFR conditions and

ridge axis will extend from West Virginia, to southwest Kentucky
and Middle Tennessee, into central and southern parts of Arkansas.

Surface winds are forecast to be below 10 knots through 00z/24.
