Tonight a line of rain and storms move through the Midlands. We could see heavy downpours and some gusty winds.

Thanksgiving is cooler and dry as a high pressure system dominates our weather. Expect partly cloudy skies with low 60s for highs.
Friday a small shortwave in the jet stream swings east and creates a weak low pressure system at the surface of the earth. This will bring a 30% chance of some spotty showers and drizzle. Expect mostly cloudy skies with highs in the mid 60s.
