It was a chilly day, but not that chilly considering normal highs are now down into the mid-50s. Highs were within a few degrees of that in most spots, with readings near 50 or heading into the low 50s. Winds have still been occasionally gusty, yet considerably less so than yesterday. While there are some clouds blowing by tonight and tomorrow, the region should stay dry.

Through tonight: We’ll see a fair amount of high-level cloudiness this evening and overnight. That helps keep our temperatures from tumbling far, with lows mainly in the mid-30s to near 40. Winds are light from the south.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): It may end up cloudier than not on the whole, but periods of sunshine are also a good bet. With a weak weather system passing to our northwest, clouds increase late in the day, and showers may appear in the hours after dark. Before any of that rain risk, highs are in the mid- and upper 50s. Winds blow from the south around 10 mph.

Thanksgiving: Jason Samenow put together a great overview of Thanksgiving weather across the country. For the most part, tranquil. Want a little more detail for here? Let’s give it a go.

  • Showers depart in the morning. The most consistent rain should be pushing east by sunrise, or midmorning at the latest. A few raindrops could linger into the early afternoon well east or southeast.
  • Midday drying and warming. While we may not see total clearing, there should be some. A cold front should hold off long enough to keep the day somewhat humid for this time of year.
  • Temperatures well above normal. The average high of 54 is likely to be eclipsed by at least 10 degrees. The current model consensus is for mid- and upper 60s.
