Chilly Black Friday Morning
Shoppers lined up at retailers around the nation to score the best Black Friday deals. But how far would you go to get these great deals? How about spending the night with 40 mph winds and temperatures in the teens? Or sub zero wind chills with snow falling?
Shoppers in New York
Nothing out of the ordinary (weather wise) in New York. A beautiful Thanksgiving day will be followed by another mild afternoon today (mid 50s) out ahead of an approaching front. Temperatures falling back into the 40s tomorrow with winds up to 40 mph.
Shoppers in LA
From CBS News: The warmest weather across the nation will be found in the Southwest with highs from Phoenix back to LA in the mid 80s. Even with that warm weather its still cold enough to appreciate a hat and a tent through the overnight hours as temperatures in the mid 40s.
Shoppers in Minnesota
Those heading out to the Mall of America were able to wait indoors. With temperatures dipping down to 18 overnight in Minneapolis and wind gusts up to 40 mph, it felt as cold as 1 degree at times.

Snow totals already over a foot in Northern Wisconsin:
As the system moves through the Great Lakes, the heaviest snow will move in to U.P. of Michigan.
While most of the region won’t deal with snow of that magnitude, the entire region will feel the effects of this system with the high winds and dropping temperatures. Some wind chill values in the single digits this morning:
Despite this wintery weather, most of the roads will stay dry around the nation today so that is good news for those traveling home from their thanksgiving celebration.
