Weather Summary:

Steady rain will continue across the Triad Sunday night. Warm weather overtakes the Triad for Monday, and then we turn our eyes to a complicated storm system on Wednesday that could cause snow to mix in with rain.

An impressive warm front continues to push toward the Piedmont. This is bringing us loads of warmth and moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. Rain will continue, on and off at times, throughout the overnight hours, eventually tapering off toward morning. Temperatures will actually rise overnight as this front pushes through the area.

Monday will be warm and windy, but largely free of rain. We still run the risk for a stray shower or two throughout the day, but the story will be our temperatures which reach the 70's and gusty winds that could reach 30 mph.

A cold front will roll through Monday evening, pushing off the coast. As this front goes offshore, it will stall out over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream.

Low pressure will form along this stalled front by Wednesday morning, and a storm system is likely to develop. This storm should send precipitation our way through the day on Wednesday. At the same time, cold air will be approaching from the west.

The exact track of the storm and the amount of cold air will determine what weather the Triad sees Wednesday. Right now, it appears that we'll at least see a cold rain in the Piedmont. There's a lower chance that we'll see snow mixing in with the rain at times, and even a lower chance that the snow will accumulate significantly.

With that being said, everything is subject to change over the coming days so keep checking back on the forecast for this busy travel day.

By Thanksgiving Day skies will clear out and quiet, cool weather will continue through the weekend.

Our normal high is 58, and our normal low is 37.
