Good Wednesday to one and all. It’s here! The busiest travel day of the year is underway, and the weather looks to cooperate for most folks. Mainly dry weather is joining a big blast of cold air to kick off that long Thanksgiving holiday period.
A cold front is pushing through early in the morning, knocking temps into the 20s to begin the day. Wind chills could flirt with the teens early on. Highs on Wednesday are generally in the upper 30s and low 40s:
Thanksgiving Day will feature temps in the 20s in the morning and 40s in the afternoon. That’s colder than normal, but nothing we can’t handle. There will be a mix of sun and clouds.
Black Friday shoppers appear to have nice weather, too. The morning starts with temps in the upper 20s and low 30s, and in the low 50s in the afternoon. Winds will gust during the day.
Those winds will really crank Saturday as a weak cold front drops in from the northwest. Gusts could reach 30 mph at times, and I can’t rule out a light shower.
Colder air moves in for Sunday and Monday, with the mainly dry weather rolling on.
