Midnight Update:  We will continue to have clear skies across the region, with high pressure to our south giving us southerly winds.  Morning commute temperatures will be in the low to mid 30s, so you'll need the jacket, yet we'll have milder afternoon temperatures.  Skies will generally be partly sunny for Thursday afternoon, with a high of 54 degrees.  More clouds develop Thursday, with a low temperature of 43 degrees.  Scattered rain showers will be possible for Friday, with high temperatures around 59 degrees.  Temperatures get back into the low to mid 60s for both Saturday and Sunday, with scattered rain showers on Saturday, and a line of heavier rain showers moving through on Sunday.  There is a chance you may hear a little thunder this weekend, with some thunderstorms possible, yet we are not expecting anything severe.  Colder and drier conditions return next week for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, with temperatures in the mid 30s to near 40 degrees.
