We are watching an area of light rain that is mainly south and east of the city. There is a slight chance for some showers overnight into early on Wednesday. The system pulls away Wednesday taking the rain to the north and east. We will be clearing out with more sunshine and cool air later in the day. Another quick moving "clipper" system will bring another chance of light rain late Wednesday night. That could even shake out a few flurries in the mountains.

As that system moves to the north and east, it will get stronger. It will make travel to the Carolinas wet, then to the mid-Atlantic region, rain will change to snow on Wednesday. The system will continue to spread snow from Washington to New York to Boston. Be sure and check your flight schedules if you are going into that direction.

We will have improving weather. It will be colder for Thanksgiving day. We will start with morning temperatures in the mid 30s with an afternoon high near 50 with mostly sunny skies. It will be near freezing on Friday morning with a high in the low 50s.

We will warm up over the weekend. Highs will make it back to the 60s. A few more clouds build in Monday and Tuesday with temperatures remaining a little above average.
