Meteorologist Cindy MorganDamp & Dreary Tonight

You probably noticed it felt a little warmer again today than it has been all of last week. Certainly a welcome for everyone, unfortunately the clouds/fog/drizzle had to "ruin" it for us on our Saturday. Look for the damp and dreary conditions to stick around all night, as a system continues to approach us from the west.

Wet/dreary conditions will linger into Sunday then, as the system continues to push eastward throughout the day. Foggy, skies will be with us early, then look for occasional rain showers sticking around all-day. A light breeze out of the south will warm us to the upper 40s and lower 50s, despite the cloud cover & rain. Temperatures will drop down enough to support a rain/snow mix after sunset on Sunday, and gradually turning cool enough for all-snow Monday morning.

Winds out of the north will pick up Monday, blowing our new 1-3" of snow around, so visibility will be an issue for our morning commute Monday. And yes, you guessed it, the northerly winds mean cooler temperatures are returning as well, with highs in the mid 20s on Monday.

Right now we could see a few snowflakes fly early in the day on Thanksgiving, but they should be over with by the time we are sitting down for our big meal of the day. Thanksgiving will be a chilly one though, as highs stay in the mid teens, meaning the pie will not be able to cool on the windowsill this year!

Tonight: Cloudy, with pockets of drizzle and fog. Lows will be mild, in the lower 40s. Wind: S 5-15 mph.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy. Damp and dreary all-day, with morning fog. Occasional rain showers will last throughout the day, gradually turning to a rain/snow mix during the late evening. Highs in the lower 50s, briefly, falling to the upper 30s by the evening.  Wind: S 10-20 mph.
