Forecast: Cloudy, damp & raw Thanksgiving week
Sunshine possibly returns next weekend
FORECAST IN DETAIL
We seem to be alternating between generally sunny and dry stretches and cloudy and damp stretches. The weekend brought an end to a sunny one so now we begin another which will be cloudy. Regrettably, this cloudy, cool, and damp stretch may extend right on through Thanksgiving. Early indications, however, are that a sunny period may come back for next weekend.
Today (Monday): Weak low pressure to the south and moist flow from the northeast (winds at around 10 mph) will combine to give us periods of light rain and drizzle today. Temps will be chilly, mainly holding in the upper 40s in most spots with perhaps a 50 degree reading or two around. Rainfall totals shouldn't be more than a couple tenths of an inch. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: There's a 40% chance of light rain, but probably mostly drizzle will linger once the low pressure system passes to our north. Winds will be from the north around 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Though the low pressure system will have pulled away, some drizzle could linger through part of the morning. By afternoon, it should just be mostly cloudy, with highs in the low-to-mid 50s. We'll continue with a wind from the north around 10 mph. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: It will remain cloudy with the possibility of drizzle returning. Lows will generally be in the mid-40s. Confidence: Medium
Cloudy weather and a chance of morning drizzle holds on Wednesday, with possibly some breaks in the clouds in the afternoon. Highs should be in the mid-to-upper 50s. Wednesday night may give us a brief rain-free period, with lows in the 40s. Confidence: Low-Medium
Rain may redevelop on Thanksgiving as low pressure approaches from the west and possibly the south (these may merge and produce a potent storm, but more to the north). Highs should be in the low 50s. Look for the rain to gradually end Thanksgiving night but for it to turn windy and cooler, with lows near 40. Confidence: Low-Medium
Windy and quite cool conditions seem like a strong possibility on Friday under variably cloudy skies. A shower or two can't be ruled out, with snow showers in the mountains. Highs will probably only be in the mid-to-upper 40s. Breezy and cold Friday night, with lows 30-35 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Low-Medium
Sunshine may make a come back next weekend, but it will likely be a bit chilly...with highs near 50 Saturday, moderating to the mid-50s by Sunday. Lows Saturday night look cold, in the upper-20s to low-to-mid 30s (suburbs-city). Confidence: Low-Medium
