Up to 3 inches of snow is possible with highs of 35 to 42 degrees.

Saturday Night: Clear and colder.

Monday night - Partly cloudy, with a low around 57. From Trenton down through the Delaware Valley and points south where the rain held off a bit longer, temperatures were able to top out at or above 50. Rain spreads across the area as early as 8am in our western counties.

Then, we're riding the rollercoaster temperatures through Thanksgiving day.

After an unseasonably warm day today, a strong cold front will move across the area tonight. Winds may gust as high as 31 miles per hour.

"Rainfall totals by Sunday morning will range from.5" to 2".

The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory that will be in effect from noon to 10 p.m. Sunday., for much of southern New England, including CT.

Locations... Mountains of Southeast West Virginia, Southwest Virginia and Northwest North Carolina, as well as the Virginia foothills. Friday was windy and wintry, with scattered snow showers. There's a small window for a wintry mix when it starts in the Northeast Kingdom but we should warm fast enough for most precip to change to rain by dinner. Highs will climb into the 50s and 60!

A resolution needs nine votes in favor and no vetoes by the United States, France, Russia, Britain or China to be adopted. The vote is scheduled for 2000 GMT, just hours before the mandate of the so-called JIM expires at midnight.

Tuesday - Partly sunny, with a high near 46. West wind 10 to 15 miles per hour. This will be great weather to get outside!

Wednesday will have skies back to being nice and sunny!

The front comes through tomorrow causing temperatures to fall throughout the day.

Going into the rest of Thanksgiving week you can expect the weather to be mostly dry with clouds around each day. So let's put a chance of rain in the forecast for Wednesday morning to account for the discrepancy, and revisit the forecast as it draws closer.

Monday night: Partly cloudy, low around 36.

A cool Friday night leads to a mild Saturday.

In addition, thunderstorms will remain possible late this afternoon and early this evening, with some strong to severe storms incuded.

Meanwhile, Central Texas will continue to experience cooler but seasonal weather throughout the holiday week.
