Tonight (Tuesday Night) will turn colder and breezy behind a cold front. Overnight lows will range from the middle 30s in the northwest to the upper 40s in the south. The wind will become north behind the front and increase between 10 and 20 mph along with some higher gusts.
Wednesday will be sunny and cool with afternoon highs in the 50s.
If you're planning to be out Thursday evening or early Friday morning, here's a look at what to expect! Partly cloudy skies with temperatures dropping into the mid 40s late Thursday night into early Friday morning. We'll reach the low 70s by Friday afternoon.
Temperatures will be above normal over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with highs in the 60s and 70s. Some areas may even reach the low 80s on Friday. There will be little/no chance for rainfall during this time.
Since Wednesday is a big day for traveling, here is a look at the expected weather across the contiguous United States. Most of the U.S. will be dry but it will be cloudy with chances of precipitation across the northern tier of States. The precipitation will be mostly rain, but snow is expected across North Dakota, northern Minnesota, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and far northwestern Pennsylvania. Snow or a rain/snow mix is possible across across the New York's Adirondack Mountains and the mountains of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. There will be a chance of rain across Deep South Texas and a chance of showers and thunderstorms across southeast Georgian and all of Florida.
