  • We are in store for some big changes this week as we head into Thanksgiving weekend.
  • More clouds are expected to move in on Monday, but they will not bring any rain.
  • Highs will warm up to just near 60 degrees.
  • Rain is expected to move in Tuesday morning and will linger for most of the day.
  • Heavier rain will then move in by Tuesday afternoon, and we could see a brief window of strong to severe storms by the evening.
  • Damaging winds from the storms will be the primary threat, along with lightning and heavy rain.
  • There may even be a low tornado risk if all the elements come together by the evening.
  • However, this is all expected to clear out early Wednesday morning, so Thanksgiving travel should be fine across the region.
  • Thursday looks sunny and cool, with lows in the upper 30s in the mornings and highs just shy of 60 degrees in the afternoon.
  • Things look overall quiet as we head into the weekend.
