Overnight: Clouds will gradually decrease overnight with lows in the middle 20s, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said.
Thanksgiving: A cold start to the holiday on Thursday is expected with temperatures slowly climbing out of the 20s. A light breeze will create wind chills in the teens early. Mostly sunny skies are expected for the afternoon with a chilly high in the upper 30s. “This will be nearly 10 degrees below normal, but not record-breaking,” Vrydaghs said. “We’ll stay mainly clear at night and cold again with lows in the upper 20s.”
Friday: Another cold start is expected for Black Friday shoppers with temperatures rising through the 30s. Sunshine is expected early but clouds will slowly increase throughout the day. High temperatures will be close to normal, around 50 degrees. It’ll become breezy through the day with the next system approaching that will bring showers to the area late in the evening.
Saturday: Showers are likely on this mild but breezy day with highs in the lower 50s. Rain will end into the night but clouds will linger into Sunday morning.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the middle 50s. Winds will increase into the evening with rain developing.
Monday: There is a chance of rain showers mixing with, or transitioning entirely, to snow flurries. Expect a blustery and colder day with highs in the low 40s.
