Overview: Look for primarily rain on Wednesday, with some snow mixing in, but little or no accumulation.

Details: (Posted at 10 PM on Tuesday 11/25) A large batch of rain is heading in our direction, and rain should begin around midnight (if not before). However, temperatures at the surface just aren't going to get cold enough to support much snow, so this will primarily be a cold rain event. Some snow could mix in at times, especially Wednesday morning, but even if that does happen, it will not accumulate. The bulk of the rain will be over by midday Wednesday, although some showers could linger into the afternoon hours.

Travel should not be a problem in this area. However, the higher elevations to our north and west stand a better chance of picking up snow on Wednesday (perhaps up to 3-5 inches), so be aware of that if your Thanksgiving travel plans will take you in that direction.

A second "clipper" system will swing through the area Wednesday night, possibly dropping some light snow showers. Any snow that falls from this second system has a better chance of sticking, but precipitation amounts will be light, so I would be surprised to see anything more than a dusting. Thanksgiving Day itself should feature morning clouds, then clearing conditions during the afternoon, with highs around 50. Look for similar conditions to continue into the weekend and the first part of next week, when high temperatures are expected to return to the 60s.
