Clouds will gradually move out tonight, as arctic air arrives from the northwest. This will knock temperatures down through the single digits overnight, into early Thursday morning.

Expect plenty of sunshine for your Thanksgiving holiday, but when you step outside for the first time, you'll quickly be greeting with arctic air.. which will keep temperatures from rising much at.. In fact, with highs only in the lower teens, It's going to be one of the coldest Thanksgivings we've seen in decades!

High pressure will continue to build in from the west, and though winds will be fairly light, they will be blowing just enough to keep chill values below zero through the morning before rising into the single digits into the afternoon. If you are a planning to run or walk in the Eau Claire Turkey Trot at the YMCA, make sure to be dressed warmly and can comfortably tackle these frigid conditions. Once we get into the evening hours, clouds will begin to arrive from the west, as a warm front tracks through the Plains. This will spread a swath of snow over the state, starting after midnight, and continuing for some of us into Black Friday. The timing and track of this expected snow is still a bit uncertain, but the highest amounts and longest duration is expected to occur north and east of Eau Claire. Locally I'm forecast an inch or two, but that could be an inch or two more further north in places east of Barron and along highway 8 and points north. If you are planning to hit the stores early Friday morning, expect snowy conditions. Temperatures will be rising through the day however, and as milder air pushed into the mid levels of the atmosphere, it could even lead to a little wintry mix at times before any snow ends.

The weekend will get off to a milder start, with a southerly flow and temperatures rising through the 30's, but it won't last, and don't expect much sunshine.. The next cold front will pass through generally dry Saturday night, while another shot of arctic air follows for Sunday and Monday. On Sunday, high temperatures will be early in the morning, while falling through the teens in the afternoon, and remaining there through Monday.

Have a great and safe Thanksgiving.. and don't eat too much!
