Happy Thanksgiving Eve! It has been a pleasant one so far today with lots of sunshine and temperatures a bit warmer than Tuesday. Cloud cover will slowly increase this afternoon/tonight, as a cold front slides east. This will lead to showers by the evening hours of Thanksgiving and even a chance for a few lingering flurries (assuming enough moisture within freezing temperatures). Following the showers tomorrow evening/overnight, sunshine and much cooler air returns for Friday. Highs for most will be in the low and mid 40s, improving into the weekend.
Looking at your Thanksgiving Day forecast, partly cloudy skies will start us out but increase through the day. Depending on how much cloud cover to sunshine we get will depend on how warm highs reach. For now, mid 50s can be expected, but with more sunshine through the afternoon they could get as warm as 60. By the evening, showers will begin building in, continuing for portion of the area overnight.
Overall rain totals are unimpressive. The bulk of rainfall will be to our west, as moisture lessons eastward. Overall, a few tenths of an inch are possible. This will mainly be a wetting rain before moving out quickly.
That will do it for today. We will be off Thanksgiving and Friday but continue to provide updates through Twitter & Facebook. I wish everyone a great Thanksgiving!
