Continued cloudy but warmer with an arctic blast arriving tomorrow!

Spotty Passing Showers, Mainly Cloudy, Noticeably Warmer
Temperatures: Around 60º
Wind: SW 5-10 mph
Becoming Partly Cloudy, Breezy & Cooling
Temperatures: Around 50º, falling
Wind: NW 10-20+ mph
Partly Cloudy, Gusty & Bitterly Cold
Temperatures: 30s
Wind Chill: 10s & 20s

Much like yesterday, we will be socked in with the clouds; but unlike yesterday, a strong southerly push will bump the mercury to around 60 degrees. If any sunshine happens to sneak through, we could go higher. A couple of showers are possible (mainly later tonight). A strong arctic front crosses into early Saturday and we will have a shot for some pre-dawn showers with skies clearing mid-morning in time for the Annual Thanksgiving Parade in Silver Spring. Come out and meet me as I emcee the event- just dress warmly b/c although clouds should break for sun it will be cool, in the 40s to near 50º, with gusty breezes.

Coldest air thus far of the season spills in Saturday night with highs struggling to get above the mid 30s Sunday accompanied by chills in the upper teens. Hope to see you at the parade and have a great day!
