A weak cold front will move toward us today. This will give us a mix of sun and clouds with a slight chance for a few showers later this afternoon. It will be a mild day with highs around 70. The cold front will move through tonight into Tuesday Morning. We will see scattered showers and maybe a rumble of thunder. The rain will be mainly light. Lows will be in the lower 50s. Tuesday will start out with a few lingering showers, but then we will dry out by midday. The clouds will slowly decrease all day. It will be cooler with highs in the lower 60s. Tuesday Night will be mostly clear and chilly with lows in the 40s on both sides of the lake.

High pressure will briefly build over us on Wednesday. Expect plenty of sunshine on the busy Thanksgiving travel day. We will still be cool with highs in the lower 60s.

Scattered showers will move back into the area on Thanksgiving Day Morning as an upper-level wave moves across the region. Most of the rain will be on the Southshore and it will come to an end around midday. Then we will be left with mostly cloudy skies for the rest of the day. We will have a cool day with high temperatures in the lower 60s.

Rain will come back on Friday as another upper-level wave and a cold front move over us. Expect dry weather for those going to shop early on Black Friday Morning. If you wait until later in the day you will need an umbrella as scattered showers and storms will move over us. It will be a milder day with highs back around 70.

Weekend Outlook: Right now, we will have some clouds and a slight chance for a shower on Saturday and Sunday. We will be mild with highs in the 70s.
