Forecast: Mostly Cool and Mostly Tame
We'll start and end the work week with brief warm-ups, but it won't be anything for warm-weather fans to hang their hats on. Maybe we touch 50 today and Friday, but as soon as we do the next cold front swings through, dropping highs back into the blustery 40s. While these cold fronts will produce some showers, refresh the chill in the air and generate some wind, no major storminess nor wild temperature swings are in the cards.
Increasing clouds, rain this evening. 46-50. With mid-to-upper 20s early this morning, the day gets off to a cold start. But with a wind from the south, temperatures will rise well into the 40s this afternoon, despite thickening cloud cover. Showers may (40% chance) sneak into the western suburbs before dark.
Rain overnight, gradually tapering off from west to east in the early a.m. as the responsible cold front passes by. Most areas should pick up about 0.25" of rain. Lows drop to 32-36 (suburbs-city).
Keep reading for the forecast through Thanksgiving and the weekend.
Variably cloudy and blustery. 41-44. A reinforcing shot of cold air arrives during the day, not allowing temperatures to rise much. A few snow flurries can't be ruled out, although there will be intervals of sunshine as well. High temperatures may reach the low 40s, but will feel like the 30s with winds from the northwest at 10-20 mph, with higher gusts.
Partly to mostly cloudy Tuesday night with as a weak disturbance ripples by. A stray snow flurry can't ruled out (20% chance), with cold overnight lows from 23-28 (suburbs-city).
No major travel troubles seem likely on Wednesday - at least locally. We'll be squeezed by low pressure to the north and high pressure to the south. The result will be a breezy but dry day with chilly afternoon highs in the mid-to-upper 40s. Clear overnight, with lows 25-30 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
All indicators suggest a pretty tranquil Thanksgiving. With high pressure in control, I'm expecting a mostly sunny day with a seasonably cool high near 50. Overnight, a clear night will likely allow temperatures to dip down to 25-30 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
The weather Friday may come pretty close to resembling today's. A wind from the south may boost temperatures up near 50, with thickening clouds and rain by evening as the next cold front approaches. Overnight lows will likely drop from 35-40 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium
After a few morning rain showers, skies should slowly clear on Saturday with highs mainly in the 40s. Sunday will probably be partly sunny, breezy and cool, with highs in the mid 40s after starting the day near freezing. Confidence: Medium
