The area will experience strong sustained south winds from 25 to 30 mph. Around 7 p.m., winds will shift sharply to the west as a cold front moves through. After a daytime high in the 60s, temperatures will drop to about 36 tonight, the Weather Service said.

The windy conditions could make driving high-profile vehicles such as vans and SUVs difficult, the weather service warned.

Rain today is expected to taper off this afternoon. There’s a 20 percent chance of showers through 1 a.m. Thursday. Scattered rain and snow showers are possible Thursday. The day will be mostly cloudy with a high of 44.

If I answered you, would it count as 'off-topic' and get evaporated from the board?!

Don't worry everybody, nothing lasts forever. Not even cold November rain.

Yeah, it gives way to December's (and January's, and February's, and March's, and April's...that's not *forever* lol?!) ice and snow. Which doesn't make me any happier ;-)
