Today (Tuesday): Mostly cloudy with temperatures about the same or slightly warmer than yesterday. If the cloud canopy is thick enough, high temperatures may get held back slightly. But for now, we favor a range through the middle 50s in most areas. Light winds from the north are unbothersome. Confidence: High

Tonight: Cloudy in the evening, but slowly breaking up overnight to allow temperatures to ease a bit cooler. Lows range through the 30s with the coldest levels near freezing in the outer suburbs. Light winds again. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Sunshine returns, which allows temperatures to make better progress into the mid-to-upper 50s. Light winds from the north and dry air give off a slight chill. Confidence: High

Tomorrow night: Mostly clear with lows ranging through the 30s. The outer surburbs could see more freezing temperatures and scattered frost again. Confidence: Medium-High


Thanksgiving Day is bonus weather given how cool November has been overall. High pressure is expected to sit right overhead as the previously cool air mass moderates. Highs in the upper 50s to maybe a few low 60s in spots prevail along with mostly sunny skies and light winds. Thursday night sees mostly clear skies with lows in the 30s again. While not as chilly as prior nights, it is still cold enough to recommend dressing warmly if you are waiting for pre-dawn door buster deals. Confidence: Medium-high

Black Friday will compel you outside to burn those excess holiday calories with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the low-to-mid 60s. Partly cloudy Friday night, but mild in the evening with temperatures in the 40s dropping into the mid-to-upper 30s toward morning as a cold front sweeps through. Confidence: Medium

The weekend trends back in the colder direction again with breezy conditions on Saturday calming by Sunday. Partly sunny skies on Saturday also shift to partly to mostly sunny by Sunday. Highs are mainly in the mid-to-upper 40s (brrr) with lows in the 30s, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see more 20s in outlying areas again especially by Sunday morning. Confidence: Medium
