Winds ramp up Monday night although it will remain dry until Tuesday morning when a cold front will cross the area.

We head into Thanksgiving week with overall a rarity this time of year with quiet weather expected through the holiday although that being said, it won't be completely dry. Another story will be the gusty winds Monday night.

After some lake effect snow this past weekend, milder weather works in Monday along with dry weather. Expect a mix of sun/clouds Monday. Most areas Sunday were stuck close to the freezing mark, but many of us will warm into the low-40's today (about 10 degrees warmer than it was Sunday). Low pressure will approach from Southern Canada leading to a gradual ramp up in the wind. Winds will pick up out of the southwest (especially after dark) Monday evening into the overnight. Winds will peak around midnight with gusts close to 40 mph in spots. While the wind will come down somewhat by Tuesday morning, it will remain gusty as winds turn more westerly.

The next weather system to affect the area will roll in Tuesday as a cold front will pass. Temperatures will fall from around 40F early in the day down to 30F by sunset. This front will bring a few rain/snow showers before this switches over to just lake effect snow showers later Tuesday into Tuesday night. No "big" snow totals are forecasted but the usual snow belts could end up with an inch or two by Wednesday morning.

Dr weather back in the forecast if you have travels Wednesday with some hints of another cold front brushing the area Thanksgiving Day. Even if that happens, just a few very hit/miss snow showers are expected. High temperatures Wednesday into Thanksgiving will reach the mid/upper-30's.

Messy weather back in the forecast later Friday as yet another system sweep south out of Canada with what should be a rain/snow mix later in the day.
