Creepy Weather

It's 70 degrees at nearly ten o'clock on the evening before Thanksgiving.
Here's what NOAA has to say about it:
THROUGH 11PM...A LINE OF STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS
EXTENDING FROM NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA INTO CENTRAL MISSOURI
WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE TOWARD THE EAST NORTHEAST AT
AROUND 35 MPH. THE MOST INTENSE STORMS WILL AFFECT
AREAS IN MISSOURI ALONG AND EAST OF A LINE FROM NEOSHO
TO SPRINGFIELD TO ROLLA. THE STRONGEST STORMS WILL BE
CAPABLE OF PRODUCING TORRENTIAL RAINFALL...HAIL...AND
WINDS UP TO 60 MPH. ISOLATED TORNADOES ARE ALSO POSSIBLE.
RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF ONE HALF TO ONE INCH ARE EXPECTED.
LOCALLY HEAVIER AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF AN INCH IN A SHORT
PERIOD OF TIME COULD RESULT IN LOCALIZED FLOODING.
WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED...

THE LIGHTNING RISK IS SIGNIFICANT.
THE THUNDERSTORM WIND RISK IS ELEVATED FOR WIND GUSTS
OVER 60 MPH.
THE HAIL RISK IS ELEVATED FOR HAIL TO THE SIZE OF
PING PONG BALLS.
THE TORNADO RISK IS ELEVATED.
THE FLOOD RISK IS ELEVATED.
THE NON THUNDERSTORM WIND RISK IS LIMITED.
THE FREEZING RAIN RISK IS LIMITED.
THE EXTREME COLD RISK IS LIMITED.

Tomorrow it is supposed to be winter -- temperatures could
go as low as single digits.
