Winds will continue to be gusty tonight but will diminish after midnight. Clear skies and nice conditions are expected for Thanksgiving Day.

Tonight: Clearing Skies, Winds Diminish

Lows: 30s | Wind: NW 5-15 m.p.h.

Thursday: Mostly Sunny, Pleasant

Highs: Upper 50s | Wind: N 5-10 m.p.h.

Friday: Sunny and Milder

Highs: Low 60s | Wind: SE 4-8 m.p.h.

A WIND ADVISORY is in effect until 10 pm for Frederick County and points westward in MD and for Loudoun and northern Fauquier Counties and points westward in VA. Winds may gust to 40 mph and to 50 mph at elevations above 1000 feet

High pressure is building into the area…hence the strong, gusty winds. Skies will clear tonight but in the meantime, decks of clouds and isolated showers and sprinkles will continue. As high pressure strengthens and moves south of our area, not only will we see a lot of sunshine but also a noticeable warming trend. (see detailed forecast) Cloudiness will increase on Sunday afternoon as a new area of low pressure may approach the region. At this point, it appears scattered showers will be possible Sunday evening and again on Monday.
