A strengthening breeze from the south will continue to supply the area with unseasonably warm and humid weather today. Widespread rain will occur across the entire area, and there is potential for a strong or severe thunderstorm late in the day before a strong cold front arrives late. After showers exit to the east on Wednesday morning, Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Saturday will be fantastic with plenty of sunshine and temperatures recovering into the upper 50s to the lower 60s. The next storm system will produce widespread showers and thunderstorms on Sunday, and perhaps a few snow flurries on the colder side of the storm system on Monday of next week.
