FORECAST IN DETAIL
The trip over the hills and through the woods could be a little slick but I am betting that the afternoon clouds part, allowing you touch footballers to get out there! The real cold front crashes the party on Friday morning. Wear your hoodies shoppers, so you don't have an umbrella wasting an arm that could be carrying shopping bags! Winds crank up and it cools down Friday night. That's a fair trade for sunny and dry weather through Monday.
Today (Thanksgiving): Some light rain and drizzle (70% chance) are likely to make morning trips a little slick. Well north and west, especially toward northern Md. and southern Pa., lookout for a little sleet or freezing rain early. However, a warm front should sneak through at midday. Behind this front, there may be some breaks in the clouds. Light breezes from the southeast should be tolerable as morning 40s should push into the lower 50s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Skies gradually cloud back up in the evening helping to keep lows in the upper 40s. Light winds from the south pull up more moisture and light rain is possible by daybreak. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Black Friday): A cold front approaches the area setting off some showers (70% chance) in the morning. Winds shift from the south to the west at 10-15 mph, marking the passage of the front. Cloudy skies gradually break during the afternoon and roads quickly dry for all the shoppers. Highs will be in the low-to-mid 50s. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Brisk winds coming from the west at 10-20 mph put a chill on the evening. Readings hold in the 40s until after midnight. Lows in the upper 20s to lower 30s can be expected. Even the District may flirt with freezing temperatures. Confidence: High
Saturday is finally a bright sunny day. The cold start to the day is a little hard to shake but upper 40s to around 50 still look likely. Winds from the northwest at 10-15 mph make jackets a must all day long. Calming winds in the evening are welcome but allow a quick drop in temperatures. Confidence: High
Sunday morning's freezing temperatures in most spots quickly thaw but temperatures are likely to stay below the normal lower 50s and only hit the mid-to-upper 40s. This should not be hard to take for all those FedEx bound fans as sunny and calm conditions dominate. Let's hope the Redskins do too. Overnight, lows range from the upper 20 in the suburbs to the mid-30s downtown. Confidence: High
Monday keeps the string of sunny days going with seasonable temperatures on the slate. Highs reach the low-to-mid 50s with only a hint of breeze from the south. Confidence: Medium-High
