A pleasant Thanksgiving approaches

/ November 26, 2019 at 9:52 PM

While many people in the Upper Midwest and along the West Coast will be dealing with nasty weather this Thanksgiving, we can be thankful for mostly quiet and comfortable conditions as we kick off the holidays.

Wednesday will be the warmest day this week as temperatures top out in the mid-70s ahead of a cold front. Said front will swing through overnight Wednesday into early Thursday morning; clouds will increase, but the weather should remain dry across the area as the front will be weakening with time. Clouds will be decreasing and it’ll be cooler on Thanksgiving Day, with highs in the mid-to-upper 60s. Expect mostly sunny skies for whatever Black Friday shopping you may want to do with temperatures running a little cooler — generally low 60s in the afternoon with lows in the mid-40s.

Some minor coastal flooding cannot be ruled out with the 8:12 AM high tide Wednesday, but no major issues are expected.

I wish a happy Thanksgiving to all of you and yours! Please be safe when traveling.
