A Few Clouds; Breezy Up Top

High pressure retreats to the east while a few more clouds move in tonight. Clouds increase quickly Wednesday with light showers possible in the afternoon. More significant showers arrive Wednesday night and end early Thanksgiving Day as a front moves through from the west. The next airmass is warmer than the current one; so Thursday afternoon and Friday are seasonably pleasant. Snow Lovers, there's some hope for you on the horizon--a front arrives Monday with rain and much colder air changing rain to snow showers by late Monday.

Forecast Discussion

Clouds increase later tonight and Wednesday morning. Light showers are possible Wednesday afternoon, and steadier rain comes Wednesday night. Showers end early Thanksgiving day. Temperatures will actually be warmer behind Thursday's front.

High pressure centered in Virginia slides east into the Atlantic by Wednesday. A warm front moves across our region from southwest to northeast Wednesday night, and a cold front from the west cross the Appalachians early Thanksgiving Day.

Friday is the most pleasant day of the week with scattered clouds and temperatures above seasonal averages as high pressure moves east across the Ohio Valley.

Saturday, a weak front moves across the region from west to east. We'll have more clouds and the slightest chance of a stray, light, morning shower.

A potent low pressure builds along the Texas Coast Saturday. It will move east northeast Sunday and Monday. A cold front front packing the coldest air of the season arrives Monday. Sunday will be generally cloudy with rain by afternoon and more rain Sunday night into Monday. Details of timing are uncertain, but temperatures become much colder by late Monday and very cold Monday night. Morning rain will change to snow showers late on gusty northwest winds.
