Wait for it

How about highs in the 20s and 30s, and lows from the single digits to teens?
DONE! Next Monday and Tuesday, you're golden. Frozen, but golden. Congrats. Maybe
a bit of snow here and there. Doesn't look like there will be a lot of moisture
return from the Gulf of Mexico to make it too messy, though.

TODAY is messy. Lots of rain, and after last night's cold front, some slippery
weather in the northwest. Meanwhile, we have flooding going on in the southeast.

A look at the current temperature map shows where some of that light precip in
the northwest is causing problems. Not only that, the possibility of frozen
anemometers (and we all know just how painful that can be) is messing up our
wind chill map!

So get ready for the temperature roller coaster again. Near-historic cold
weather for the eastern half of the country next week, and we're gonna get
a glancing blow. Before that, a nice warm up to help punctuate just how cold
it's gonna get.

The cold helps slow down drought, as does the rain, of course. But we still
need some moisture across the west; especially in the western Panhandle and
far SW corner of the state.

Best enjoy the weekend. It's gonna be a COLD Veteran's Day.
