In the afternoon, winds are likely to switch from the southwest to northwest, with cooler air moving in for the overnight hours, and temperatures dipping to around freezing by just before sunrise Thursday.

Thursday, the day that ties a bow on November, will bring increasing clouds and highs only in the upper 40s.

The next chance for precipitation, in this case rain, comes Thursday night into Friday, the first day of December.
