Warmth returns for work week; Thanksgiving rain?

FORECAST IN DETAIL
We cool off today a good 10 degrees from yesterday's fabulous mid-60s, though few should be surprised by highs in the 50s as we move into the last part of November. The seasonable chill combined with mostly to partly sunny skies make for nearly perfect leaf-raking conditions, if you're fortunate (unfortunate?) enough to have a lawn anyway. We luck out with a brief early-week warm spell, before a duo of cold fronts bring rain chances and then much cooler weather in time for the holiday.
Today (Sunday): Temperatures are noticeably cooler today following a cold front that passed through last night. But highs in the mid-50s don't feel so bad with mostly to partly sunny skies above. Winds are light, from the northeast to start the morning and the east/southeast by afternoon. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Clouds build as an onshore flow takes control, and that keeps us from becoming too chilly. Overnight lows only drop to the mid-40s most spots, and winds are light from the south-southeast at less than 10 mph. Confidence: High
Are the rumors of Turkey Day rain true? What about the big travel day on Wednesday? Keep reading for the rest of our full forecast...
Tomorrow (Monday): The good news is that flow from the south should bump highs up to the low-to-mid 60s. The bad news (if you want to call it that) is that Sunday night's clouds may be slow to break up during the day. Still, some times of sun are possible, especially in the afternoon. We'll call it variably cloudy. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Monday night looks to be even milder than tonight -- lows in the upper 40s to low 50s with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Confidence: Medium-High
On Tuesday we'll be within the warm flow ahead of an approaching cold front. Depending on how long into the morning or midday our partly sunny skies last, we might squeeze in some nice warmth -- highs should get at least to the mid-60s; near 70 isn't out of the question -- before skies cloud up as the day wears on and a chance of showers arrives (around 30% as of now) by afternoon or evening. Any evening showers should decrease into the overnight with lows in the mid-40s. Confidence: Low-Medium
Most of Wednesday stays dry ahead of low pressure moving up from the southwest. The morning may even provide some sun with increasing clouds likely in the afternoon. A cooler air mass keeps highs in check -- reaching the upper 50s or so. Maybe some rain toward evening depending on how fast or slow the system from the southwest moves in. Rain chances increase some overnight. Confidence: Medium
Your Thanksgiving forecast is, unfortunately, looking like a wet one at the moment. A rather potent cold front moves through bringing with it a good chance of a good dose of rain. Luckily, we can spend the day (once we get to our destination) indoors gnoshing on all the fixin's. Outdoors it may be kind of raw with breezes, that likelihood of rain, and highs near 50 to the low 50s. Confidence: Low-Medium
