SIMMERING SATURDAY. Things warm up and westerly breezes settle in for your Saturday and the weekend with highs in the mid-40s straight through Sunday before a bit of a cold front chills things into Thanksgiving. We’ve got a look at that and more in our Outdoors Roundup for today.

HOLES AHEAD. The NDG&F previews conditions setting up for the ice fishing season in this week’s web short. While larger bodies of water remain unstable, some smaller lakes are starting to provide access to hardwater anglers.
WINGS IN WINTER. While the monarch is the posterchild for pollinators, the US FWS provides insight into the winter needs of other pollinator populations that don’t migrate or are maturing. The agency provides tips on helping those lesser-known pollinator species survive the cold so they can get back to work in spring.
TURKEY DAY SNOW? We’ll stay warm through the weekend and things cool off heading into Thanksgiving with the potential for some snow on Thursday. Plan your hunts accordingly with family and friends over the holiday!
