PM Update: A sunny, chilly weekend lies ahead

In 12 out of 16 days this month, including today, temperatures have been cooler than normal. The November average temperature is running about 4 degrees below average. The weekend brings no appreciable change to this chilly weather regime but sunny skies should brighten spirits.

Through Tonight: Skies are mostly clear and it’s cold. Good viewing conditions for the Leonid meteor shower as long as you bundle up. Lows range from the mid-to-upper 20s in the colder suburbs to the mid-30s downtown. Winds are light.

The weekend: Both days are practically identical with mostly sunny skies and highs 50-55. Saturday night is clear and cold with lows 26-36 (suburbs-city).
