Look for mostly sunny skies today with a high of 46 degrees. There's no rain in the forecast during the day, but the evening brings a 30 percent chance early in the night and partly cloudy skies later. Low overnight will be 34 degrees. High winds are back on Wednesday, but Thanksgiving promises to be sunny.
There are changes to residential trash pickup this week if your regular trash pickup day is on Thursday.

Those living south of 23rd Street/Clinton Parkway will have their trash and recycling picked up on Wednesday. For recycling routes, only recycling week #2 customers who live west of Kasold Drive will be affected.
