PM Update: Damp for Thanksgiving getaway
Periods of drizzle and a shower or two on Wednesday
Our cloudy and damp stretch is two days strong now and is not ready to let up quite yet. After rain continued into last night, today has been drier by comparison, but areas of drizzle have plagued much of the region throughout. Highs mainly in the low-to-mid 50s are right around average for this time of year. Winds from the north and east will help keep drizzle or light showers in the forecast at least into tomorrow afternoon.
Through Tonight: If you like clouds and periods of drizzle, you're in luck -- they continue to be the weather story tonight. Watch out for some areas of fog. Lows range from the lower 40s in the coldest spots to the mid-and-upper 40s downtown.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): For those making a last-minute dash out of town for Thanksgiving, expect more of the same with perhaps slightly warmer temperatures. Drizzle and a few light showers look to be around much of the day, with a respite possible by evening into the overnight. Mid-50s should do it for highs most spots.
