Happy Thanksgiving! Here’s a snapshot of what weather we will experience as we go through the holiday today.
Most of the Lower 48 is going to be quiet as high pressure will dominate many areas. It will be a little cool and breezy in parts of the Northeast and Midwest, while hot and dry conditions will cover the Southwest. Trouble spots include northern Florida where heavy rain is expected, while scattered rain showers will hit the Pacific Northwest.
Record high temperatures are expected across areas in the western half of the Contiguous U.S. We likely won’t have record cold to the east, however temperatures will feel a bit chilly with an occasional breeze.
The weather for Thursday morning’s parade in New York City will be calm and cool. A light wind will come in from the northwest will range from 5-10 miles per hour. Gusty conditions are not expected, nor any rainfall.
Three NFL games are scheduled for Thanksgiving Day. The Vikings and Lions will play indoors and the Chargers/Cowboys weather will not be a factor. The outdoor game will be the nighttime edition between New York and Washington where it will be nice, cool, and calm. Enjoy the game, the day, and all you’re thankful for!
