It's frost and fog for the start of Wednesday, but don't bust out the parkas just yet as temperatures will rise to an above-average 17 C. 

Today's forecasts calls for a mix of sun and cloud.

Tonight the low will drop to 3 C in Ottawa-Gatineau and 0 C in the Pembroke area.   

This warm weather will continue tomorrow, then drop a few degrees in Ottawa to what's normal for mid-October with a chance of showers on Saturday. 

Maniwaki has one more day of high-teen temperatures Friday that the rest of the region does not.

There's a chance Thanksgiving night will be rainy. 

Soak up the warm weather weather while you still can.
