...Dusting of Snow Expected North This Evening...Quiet
Thanksgiving Day...Warmer with Rain Chances Friday...

.DISCUSSION...Today will start off sunny but clouds will quickly
spill in this afternoon ahead of low pressure pushing into the
Northern Plains. Plan on a dusting of snow north of I-94 in
Wisconsin this evening with flurries elsewhere as the weak area of
low pressure moves through the region. Thanksgiving Day looks
mostly sunny with highs in the upper 30s to mid 40s. A cold front
will produce a chance of rain Friday afternoon. Plan on highs
pushing into the upper 40s to middle 50s before the front pushes
in during the afternoon. Saturday through Monday will be dry as
high pressure dominates the Upper Mississippi River Valley Region.
