Above average temperatures and plenty of sunshine will dominate the forecast through the Thanksgiving Day holiday.  Skies will be partly sunny each day and highs will top out 3-5 degrees above the normal of 77 and lows will dip to the upper 50s/low 60s.  There is an isolated chance for a sprinkle, but that will mainly occur along the east coast of Florida.  The best chance for a sprinkle will be in eastern Polk and Highlands counties.

A cold front will push east across the country late in the week arriving in the Bay area on Friday.  This will bring our best chance for rain (30%) and cooler air behind it for the weekend.  Highs will dip tot he low to mid 70s over the weekend with lows in the 40s and 50s.

Today: Beautiful sunny to partly sunny and warm.  Winds E 5-10 mph with a high of 82.
