QUINCY (WGEM) - High pressure is over the Midwest, which translates to mostly clear skies for the next 24 to 36 hours.

High pressure will slide just to the south and that will allow southerly wind to pick up on Tuesday. We expect sunny skies Tuesday with temperatures running above what is normal with a bit of a breeze out of the south gusting up to 25 mph.

Overnight Tuesday night we will see cloud cover on the increase in advance of a cold front approaching the Tri-State area on Wednesday night.

Wednesday daytime high temperatures do reach up into the low 60s even with increasing cloud cover and skies becoming mostly cloudy. Wednesday night expect some scattered rain to kick off across the Tri-State area.

The cold front then passes by Thursday morning. Cooler temps behind the cold front with overnight low temperatures dipping down to the upper 20s to low 30s. The cold front will make things significantly cooler on Thanksgiving day.

After high temps Wednesday on the low 60s high temperatures on Thanksgiving day will struggle to reach the mid to upper 30s.
