We have another cold night with lows dropping toward the lower 20s tonight. Skies will be clear and starry with no weather worries throughout the overnight. There will be a light breeze at times which will drop wind chills into the upper teens at times.

Clouds will be on the increase again Wednesday evening, becoming overcast Wednesday night. A few showers are possible by daybreak on Thanksgiving Day.

Highs will be in the lower 40s.

Colder air will follow the cold front and temperatures will start falling back toward the freezing mark Thursday evening.
