PM Update: A sunny and delight Thanksgiving and Black Friday

The pesky ocean storm finally pulled far enough away for sunshine to take over today. Despite the sun, chilly flow from the north held temperatures at near average levels - reaching the mid-50s for highs.We’ll do modestly better than that over the next two days as the northerly flow gradually transitions to more southerly.

Through Tonight: Mostly clear and seasonably cold. Lows range from 30-32 in the colder suburbs to near 40 downtown. Patchy frost is likely in many spots.

Thanksgiving and Black Friday: Beautiful sunshine dominates both days. Highs Thursday are 55-59 warming to 58-63 on Friday. Thursday night is just like tonight: clear with lows 30-40 (suburbs-city).
