.SHORT TERM… Issued at 225 AM CST Wed Nov 23 2022
Majority of guidance has continued to exhibit a cool bias with this week`s warm up and have based today`s high temps largely off local climo of high temps vs progged 925mb temps. This technique has performed well the past couple of days and would support highs generally in the upper 50s to near 60 today. Other than a bit of cirrus streaming into southern CWA late, today will be another sunny day.
Skies will become mostly cloudy tonight, which along with rising dewpoints should result in milder lows compared to recent nights. Thanksgiving will continue to feature above average temperatures, though cloudy skies should keep temps cooler than today. Theta-e advection in advance of an approaching trough should allow for some widely scattered showers to develop, particularly during the afternoon. It doesn`t look like a washout, but don`t be surprised if you need to dodge a few rain drops Thanksgiving Day.

.SHORT TERM… Issued at 155 PM CST Tue Nov 22 2022
Through Wednesday night…
There are no forecast concerns in the short term period.
Regional satellite imagery augmented by RAP-analyzed surface pressure fields depict a pleasant late autumn day across the Great Lakes with mostly sunny skies and a weak meridional pressure gradient. Temperatures are in the upper 40s to lower 50s, with even a few 55 to 56 degree readings being observed at press time. Tonight looks similar to last night with light winds but mostly clear skies. Lows should fall into the mid to upper 20s. Like last night, a pocket or two of shallow ground fog cannot be ruled out at daybreak.
Ensemble model guidance is in excellent agreement that an upper- level shortwave currently digging into the Pacific Northwest will continue tracking southeastward tonight and approach the central Rocky Mountains on Wednesday. Increasing low-level warm air advection ahead of the digging trough will boost 925/850mb temperatures some 2 to 3 C over the next 24 hours, setting the stage for an unseasonably warm and pleasant Wednesday. Even with gradually increasing upper-level cloud cover and a modest boost to low-level moisture (surface dew points climbing into the mid to upper 30s), high temperatures tomorrow should have no problem reaching the mid to upper 50s with several 60 degree readings easily attainable. (Record highs of 69 and 65 at Chicago and Rockford, respectively, appear quite safe). Clouds will thicken toward and especially after sunset as warm-air advection further increases.
