Dry, seasonably cool weather will kick off the week of Thanksgiving throughout the Washington, D.C. - northern Virginia area.

High pressure over the Northeast will stave off a southern Atlantic storm, allowing some clouds but not rain.

Sunday night, temperatures settle near-normal levels, lows being mostly 35 to 40 degrees. But it will be frosty by daybreak in clearer areas well north and west.

Likewise, readings Monday will end up about where they should, with highs not far from 55 degrees, helped by sunny intervals.

As for Thanksgiving Day, it looks as if the dry weather will hang on at least that long.
