Cold front to move through the region today
QUINCY (WGEM) - As expected today is shaping up to be a breezy day. Winds are coming in from the northwest sustained at about 10 - 18 mph. Wind gusts though will reach 20 - 30 mph. Winds will start to diminish later tonight. So far it has been a very cloudy day with low, thick stratus clouds overhead. Through the rest of the afternoon, we will start to see a break in the clouds leading to some sun. The break in the clouds will start first on the Missouri side and then will continue to transition eastward through the rest of the Tri-States. This break in the clouds will not last long though. As a cold front approaches from the northwest, more clouds will be pushed right back into the Tri-States. As this front comes through it will not bring us any additional rain. As for temperatures, daytime highs will be very seasonable in the mid to upper 40s. The clouds the cold front brings in will stay with us tonight, giving us mostly cloudy skies. Lows will be cooler, in the upper 20s to low 30s depending on where you live in the Tri-States.
After the cold front departs, an area of high pressure will start to arrive. This will allow for lighter winds tomorrow and clearing of the clouds. While tomorrow may start off with a few clouds, overall we are looking for a nice sunny day. Highs will be in the mid 40s.
Thanksgiving Day will likely be the warmest day of the week, with highs near 50°.
Looking into the upcoming weekend, there is a slight chance for some light precipitation.
