This has been an exceptionally warm, dry fall. We often have nice weather on Thanksgiving, but to have 60-degree days in December is unusual. Moist air coming in from the Pacific Ocean has soaked the West Coast with rain.
It may reach here by the time this is published, and as it hits the higher mountains, it may well turn to snow. However, that still remains uncertain.
