Get ready for a frigid overnight before a mostly sunny but cool Saturday — and some stormy weather ahead at the end of the weekend.
While winds may be a nuisance on Tuesday, forecasters say, Thanksgiving looks fine, with warmer temps and mostly sunny skies.
In the near term, temperatures will plunge to around 32 degrees early Saturday before warming up to a high of 48 later in the day, with light and variable winds and more clouds in late afternoon, National Weather Service forecasters say.
Saturday night will not be as cold, with a low around 39, forecasters say. Expect a mostly dry but cloudy Sunday with a high of 58 before rain begins sometime in the evening and picks up after midnight, with winds of 9 to 16 mph.
About a quarter inch could fall over the area before the precipitation rolls out by 1 p.m. Monday, and the temperature will drop from a high of about 55 around 10 a.m. to the mid-40s in the afternoon, forecasters say.
The area will stay cool and dry for much of next week, forecasters say, but the winds will go from "breezy" to "blustery" Tuesday night, with gusts above 30 mph possible and a low around 30 degrees.
Wednesday will be calmer with a high of 48, the weather service says, and Thanksgiving Day should be warmer, with mostly sunny skies and a high around 54.
