Early Monday showers

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - While we started off this morning with some light rain showers, Thanksgiving week should be generally quiet weather-wise. We'll ride the temperature roller-coaster throughout the week, but our next chance of significant rain won't arrive until Saturday.

This morning's showers are moving off to the northeast, and we'll see a mix of clouds and sunshine this afternoon. A weak cold front will move in overnight, bringing some more clouds and a very slight shower chance to start the day Tuesday. But skies will clear again by Tuesday afternoon -- mostly sunny skies and cool temperatures will prevail through Thanksgiving.

Clouds will start to stream in by late Friday, with a good chance of rain on the way for Saturday. Most of that rain should be gone by Sunday, but another system will bring us more rain as everyone returns to work on Monday after the four-day weekend.

Monday will have early rain showers, then decreasing clouds. The high will be 62, winds will be southwest around 5 mph. The rain chance will be 30 percent in the morning.

Monday Night will bring increasing clouds. The low will be 46, winds will be southwest 2 to 5 mph.

Tuesday will be partly sunny, with a very slight shower chance early in the day. The high will be 60, winds will turn from the southwest to the northwest at 5 to 10 mph. The rain chance will be just 10 percent in the morning.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny. The high will be 54, after a morning low of 32.

Thursday (Thanksgiving) will be mostly sunny. The high will be 48, after a morning low of 34.

Friday will bring increasing clouds. The high will be 50, after a morning low of 27.

Saturday will be mostly cloudy with rain likely. The high will be 54, after a morning low of 41. The rain risk will be 60 percent.

Sunday will be partly sunny, with a slight shower chance. The high will be 58, after a morning low of 48. The rain chance will be 20 percent.
