HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - After a soggy Tuesday across the mountains, we are tracking cooler, drier air to settle into the region for Thanksgiving.

Tonight Through Wednesday Night

Isolated showers will be possible tonight, but the coverage will not be as widespread. We are also tracking cooler conditions. Lows bottom out in the mid-40s under a mostly cloudy sky.

A cool day is on tap for Wednesday. High temperatures top out in the lower-50s at midnight, but, once a cold front passes, temperatures will continue to fall throughout the day. A stray shower can not be ruled out early on Wednesday, but most of the region will be dry and gloomy as a mostly cloudy sky lingers.

Into Wednesday night, we are tracking clearing conditions. Overnight lows tumble into the mid-30s under a partly cloudy to mostly clear sky.
