Howdy everyone and welcome to Friday. We have some extra moisture at the surface this morning, and temperatures are below freezing. Conditions are right for some patchy fog that will freeze onto surfaces, so you'll need to use the ice scrapers before you leave for the day.
It's not out of the question for bridges and overpasses to become slick under the freezing fog so be a little more cautious when driving over them.
Winds will come back from the southwest during the day as we heat up to highs in the 50s and 60s. We'll have high clouds over the top of us as an upper-level trough approaches the area. As it's passing over us overnight, we could see a few thunderstorms popping up in our southeastern counties. Severe weather is very unlikely.
We'll still see rising temperatures for the first part of the weekend. Saturday's highs will reach the 50s and 60s as well, just a few degrees higher than what we'll see today.
The area gets blasted with breezy winds on Sunday as the next cold front comes in. High temperatures will only top out in the 50s, before a chance for flurries or light snow comes to us that night.
We'll stay unseasonably cold for Monday and Tuesday, requiring the heavier coats, but the weather evens out closer to Thanksgiving. Conditions will be pretty mild for folks traveling on Wednesday. On the holiday, how about highs back in the 60s!
Make it a great day and enjoy the weekend!
