After ten consecutive days of below average temperatures, it is time to thaw out - if only briefly! Instead of shivering in the teens and 20s this morning, we can shed the heavier jacket as readings are in the mid 40s. Even with increasing amounts of cloudiness, with high pressure in place temperatures are expected to rise to near 60. As a system near the Great Lakes draws closer, showers are likely to begin falling after sunset and continue into early Monday morning. It will stay mild tonight and get even warmer on Monday as a front with southerly winds sends the mercury to near 70 degrees; if we reach 72, it will eclipse the 71 degree reading on the 11th and make tomorrow the warmest day this month. Thereafter a cold front will bring more seasonable weather on Tuesday - highs in the low 50s - followed by a coastal system that could bring a wintry mix here on Wednesday. Colder weather will be the trend for the latter half of Thanksgiving week with Wednesday being the most problematic day. At this point, it looks like a cold rain for the DC area with snow possible in the higher elevations to the west. Turkey Day itself is looking chilly, but dry. Enjoy your Sunday.
