Shaping up to be a clear but cold November weekend, before a warming trend kicks in for the work week. After a cold and frosty morning, today will be sunny and cool, but with a chilly southwest breeze developing ahead of a dry front. Highs today will be about 40 to 45, but a southwest wind will make it feel colder. Winds will settle down tonight, leading to another cold night with near-record lows mainly below 20°. Tomorrow will be sunny and cold, but ironically the wind chill factor will be less thanks to much lighter winds.

The upcoming week will feature a gradual warming trend ahead of a Thanksgiving Day weather system. Air temps will gradually moderate, with highs near 60° possible by Wednesday afternoon. Latest models are now showing a stronger upper trough and cold front approaching on Thursday, bringing rain Thursday evening or Thursday night, followed by breezy and colder conditions for Friday. There may be a little wet snow involved with the upper trough on Friday, but it does not look like a major issue currently.
