JR’s Wednesday Night Weather Report
Snow changed over to rain early Wednesday morning as a southerly wind resulted in slowly rising temperatures. The pockets of rain and rain showers will gradually fade away as we work our way through the night. Temperatures for the night will hold nearly steady with a light and variable wind expected. Through the wee hours of our Thanksgiving Day, the wind will turn in from the west.
Thanksgiving Day, 2020, will be a gray and relatively mild one. While no widespread or heavy rainfall is expected, roads will remain damp. There will be areas of fog and drizzle – especially early in the day. For the afternoon, high temperatures will work up into the upper 40s. A few spots may touch the 50-degree mark. While there could be a few breaks in the overcast during the afternoon, it will also be possible for some of the thicker clouds to produce a few sprinkles.
Quite a bit of cloud cover is expected for Friday too. The best chance at seeing some sunshine Friday will be later in the afternoon. A southwest to westerly breeze will keep temperatures in the 40s. Brighter skies are in the offing for the weekend, and high temperatures will continue to run just a little bit above the average, which is now 42-degrees. Readings will tumble into the 30s early next week as a pretty strong storm system moves into the eastern lakes. We’ll keep an eye on it! - JR
