The strong winds we experienced overnight will continue through noon today so the High Wind Warning is effect until then. Wind gusts of 40 to 60 mph will be possible. Wind will weaken this afternoon but it will still be breezy and cool with highs in the mid 30s to lower 40s. The next system will move into the area tomorrow morning. A light wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow will be possible Thanksgiving morning through the early afternoon. Very minor accumulations will be possible and although travel hazards are not anticipated at this time it does not take much ice to cause dangerous travel.
