PM Update: Showers late, chance of sleet N & W
Raw Thanksgiving with a.m. showers
Despite lots of sunshine, daytime highs in the 40s to near 50 along with a brisk wind from the northwest have made it feel fairly winter-like out there today. Actual highs for the day happened around midnight most spots, and temperatures this afternoon have only inched stubbornly above overnight lows. We're looking at mostly worry-free weather the rest of today for last-minute travelers, but once we get toward midnight we run the risk for showers and even some sleet in the N&W suburbs.
Through Tonight: Clouds now moving in from the west will thicken as the night wears on. A band of showers should pass through starting as early as 9 or 10 p.m. lasting into the early a.m. There could be some sleet in the north and west suburbs. Lows reach the low 30s in the colder suburbs to around 40 downtown. There should be no ground freezing concerns with the precipitation except in Frederick Co. where some light icing is possible.
Tomorrow (Thanksgiving): Any sleet north and west ends and everyone sees a risk for showers through mainly the morning. Most of the day should not feature rain falling, but with clouds and moisture in the air, it's still somewhat raw for any time spent outdoors. Highs probably within a few degrees of 50, so upper 40s and lower 50s.
Travel trouble spots: If you're like me and headed out the door to the airport, highway or railways, you might be a little anxious over what awaits. As Dan noted earlier, winds across the northeast from NYC into New England are causing some delays thanks to gusts past 40 and 50 mph earlier today. In addition to that, Janice Dean examines some other travel trouble spots across the country.
