Lots to be thankful for in the weather department this year for Turkey Day in the Pacific Northwest. No storms in the forecast– and we’re seeing lots of November sunshine as well. This early morning we’ve got the Full “Beaver” Moon. It’s named for this time of year when beaver traps would be set before swampy areas froze for the winter. The holiday today looks nice and sunny with highs in the mid 40s. Another gorgeous moon rise tonight around 5:45 pm– but we’ll get cold overnight if you’re camping out for some of the Black Friday shopping– you’ll REALLY want to bundle up.
Friday will be clear, sunny and cold for the Apple Cup game here in Seattle, if you don’t want to brave the chilly weather you can watch it right here on Q13FOX. The kickoff temperature will be 39 degrees and warm all the way up to 45. Saturday looks nice but remember the roads will be icy in the morning and the day will be sunny. Sunday will be the same with a cold start but a sunny day. Kickoff temperature will be around 40 degrees for the Seahawks game.
Due to the stagnant pattern over us our air quality will suffer a bit through the weekend. An AIR STAGNATION ADVISORY is likely to last until Monday at noon. Our air quality will degrade as we get later into the weekend.
Next shot for rain looks like late Monday.
