Shoppers Get Ready – Your Black Friday Forecast
As holiday shoppers get ready to head out looking for deals on Black Friday, very few weather problems will be found. A system moving through the Pacific Northwest will be the main weather story in the country on Friday, bringing lots of rain, snow, and wind.
Several inches of rain may fall in coastal areas of Oregon and Northern California, with more than a foot of snow in the Cascades of Washington and Oregon.
A far more tranquil weather pattern will be found in the rest of the nation. A few rain and snow showers will move through the Great Lakes and the Northeast, with isolated showers in the Florida and Texas. Much of the mid section of the country will remain dry.
Most temperatures in the country will be at or above normal. Highs will range from the 30s in the Upper Midwest to the 80s in Florida.
