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 to upper 30s. With high pressure in place, look for some sunshine this morning and temperatures rising to the mid to upper 50s this afternoon. Clouds will begin to increase however, as a system near the Great Lakes draws closer. Showers are a near certainly overnight with possible rainfall tallies over 1/2 inch. 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.
