A warm front approaches on Tuesday which will help warm us up a little. We’ll see partly cloudy to partly skies and highs climbing into the upper 30s to low 40s. Winds will be out of the south which helps usher in that milder air. Lows overnight don’t drop all that much into the low 30s and that’s due to cloudy skies and southerly winds.

Wednesday we will see mostly cloudy skies, but temperatures will remain in the mid-30′s for highs. We will see our highs around noon, then temperatures will fall in the afternoon as colder air moves in from the northwest. There will also be a chance of some light snow/flurries Wednesday night. Accumulations will be between Tr-1″ for most areas.

Following the low pressure system, a shot of cold air moves back in for Thanksgiving Day. Highs will again sit below average in the low 20s with an additional wind out of the northwest at 10-15 mph. A decent bit of sunshine will be with many areas, while lake effect will be likely for those along the south shore due to strong northwest winds. This will make for cold wind chills. Lows overnight drop into the single digits so if you plan to hit the stores for black Friday, you’ll want to bundle up!

Quiet conditions continue into Friday with chilly temperatures for Black Friday shopping. Highs for the afternoon only climb into the upper 20s. Winds will be out of the southeast at 5-10 mph. Lows overnight drop into the teens and low 20s.


A quiet and cold week ahead with lower than average highs for Monday. A slight warmup for Tuesday and Wednesday rollercoaster temps before dropping again for Thanksgiving. Only a few areas will see light precip, catch the latest on CBS 3 this morning and again tonight at 5, ,6 and 10.
