Light showers and damp overnight, then colder to start the week

Forecast

Mainly dry for Thanksgiving week...

TONIGHT: Scattered light showers, damp. Low 44.

MONDAY: Clearing skies and blustery, High 48. Northwest winds 10-20 mph.

TUESDAY: Cold and breezy, High 48. Northwest winds 5-15 mph.

A weak cold front has been gliding across the Great Lakes and Northeast today, leading to more clouds during the afternoon and evening. Despite the clouds, we did see high temperatures briefly touch the low 50s. Scattered showers tonight will average between 0.1″ to 0.2″ of rain.

The front clears by Monday morning, with gradual clearing skies for Monday afternoon. Northwest winds between 10-20 mph will keep daytime temperatures in the 40s and consistent chill throughout the day. The winds do not weaken a lot until Wednesday, so Tuesday will continue the chill. Tuesday will be the coldest day of the week.

Much of Thanksgiving week will be dry and cooler which is good for holiday travel. We stay dry for Thanksgiving Day with seasonable highs near 50 degrees. Light showers with the next cold front are then likely for Thursday night and Friday morning. Depending on the timing of the colder air pushing in with the front we may see some wet snowflakes mix in too. At this time though we expect any moisture whether it be rain or snow Thursday night and early Friday morning to be light.
