Tonight: After dark, the humidity will begin to increase as the warm front makes its way through. This front will keep temperatures in the mid-50s through the night. The chance for rain increases as the night goes on, especially in the early morning hours as a line of intermittent showers moves across the region. Winds will stay out of the south at around 5-7 mph. Expect a low temperature of 53. 

Thanksgiving Day: Light showers will greet us in the early morning but will be tapering off by late morning. If you’re cooking the turkey outside, might want to hold off till after those showers move through. Other than that though, the rest of thanksgiving day looks to be a pleasant one as clearing skies and mild temperatures will make for great football weather. It’ll still be breezy with southwest winds around 8-10 mph. The high temperature will be 64. 

Thursday Night: A relatively weak cold front will move across the region, bringing slightly cooler temperatures but also clearer skies. Winds will be out the west at around 3-5 mph. The low is expected to be 48. 

A Look Ahead: Mild temperatures will remain in the region until a stronger cold front makes its way through Saturday evening. Overall, the skies will remain relatively clear for the weekend until another storm system looks to threaten the region early next week.
