By Capital Weather Gang

Morning drizzle -- in some places soaking at times -- dried up during the afternoon as highs made the mid-50s. Partly cloudy skies this evening, as opposed to the overcast that lasted much of the day, are a sign of better weather to come for Thanksgiving Day. Don't get too used to the dry weather, though, as rain threatens again by tomorrow evening into the first part of a wind-blown Black Friday.

Through Tonight: Clouds show some breaks as we get into evening -- we'll call it partly cloudy. You might even see some stars if you aren't being blasted by city lights. But the combination of leftover moisture and light winds may lead to overnight fog, low clouds and areas of mist. Lows range from the upper 30s (suburbs) to mid-40s (downtown).

Tomorrow (Thanksgiving): Partial sunshine is possible once any morning fog/mist or low clouds dissipate. Clouds thicken back up again toward evening with showers possible. But the heaviest of any rain should hold off until later at night. Highs climb to the upper 50s to near 60.

Winter Outlooks: NBC4 meteorologist Bob Ryan has come out with his outlook for this winter, calling for "more snow than average ... and a chance of at least one big Nor'easter." Watch the video here, and see what Topper Shutt and WUSA-9's weather team is thinking for this winter here. Oh, yeah, and don't forget about CWG's own winter outlook.

Re. the winter outlooks. I think that they're forecasting moisture/rain bands that will hit the area. If you recall, it was plenty cold last winter...just no moisture. I remember the obama inauguration where it was below 32 degrees for some time before and after that event. Any precipitation would have been disastrous for all those people on the mall.

CWG - Do you have the average snowfall totals for the area by month? I am sure that most of our snowfall is typically in Jan and Feb, but am curious to see the numbers. If you have average high and low temps by month also, that would be great. I am sure this info is out on the web somewhere but if you have it handy, that would be great!
