GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Tuesday started with freezing rain producing a thin glaze on elevated surfaces, but the rest of the day was just a cold rain with temperatures hovering in the upper-30s.

Showers will be less frequent through Tuesday night and more scattered into Wednesday morning as the bulk of the moisture tracks to the northeast. Meanwhile, temperatures will remain in the upper-30s and lower-40s through Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning.

Rainfall through Tuesday evening should average around 1.5 inches. An additional 0.5 inch to an inch of rain will be possible into Wednesday morning.

By late Wednesday morning, colder air will begin to mix in with the trailing precipitation in the Triad and cause for the rain to mix with a few snow flakes. There will be a brief period around midday when there could be a full transition over to all snow. If this occurs in your area the snowfall could be heavy enough to produce a light dusting. Widespread light snow accumulation is not anticipated, but everyone will have the chance of seeing a few snow flakes.

Through the day wind speeds will pick up out of the northwest with gusts approaching 30 mph in the Triad. As the colder air spills into the area Wednesday evening wind chills will drop into the upper teens. Fortunately, the winds will also be relaxing through Wednesday evening as the temperatures drop. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be in the low 20s.

High pressure will gradually build in through Wednesday night pushing cooler and drier air into the area for Thanksgiving. High temperatures on Thanksgiving will be in the upper 30s under abundant sunshine.
