Rain for most of us and snow in the mountains of the North Country will taper from west to east, early to late afternoon, respectively, today allowing most roads to dry out before temperatures drop below freezing overnight, avoiding icing for all but the snowy areas of the north.
The new, dry, cool air moving in for Thanksgiving Day will provide temperatures only around 30 or 35 degrees for Turkey Day morning football games and high temperatures of 40-45 by afternoon with a light wind.
Friday brings a similarly cool but dry and sunny day but our recent pattern of oscillating temperatures will continue for the foreseeable future, meaning temperatures will be in the 50s Saturday, a Saturday evening cold front with a passing shower, then a return of cooler and drier air Sunday into Monday.
