Planning on doing a turkey trot race on Thursday or standing in lines on Black Friday? Here are the Thanksgiving week weather highlights you need to know.
Temperatures in the D.C. area on Thursday are expected to be in the 30s and 40s. Expect below-freezing temperatures in the early morning, 41 degrees at 11 a.m., 47 degrees at 3 p.m. and 44 degrees at 7 p.m.
You can expect it to warm up Friday and Saturday, and then temperatures to drop on Sunday. Storm Team4 Meteorologist Sheena Parveen said to expect a high of 53 and low of 34 on Friday, a high of 57 and low of 38 on Saturday, and a high of 47 and low of 35 on Sunday.
Most people across the continental United States should be able to get to their family gatherings without fear of weather-related travel delays, Storm Team4 Meteorologist Chuck Bell says.
On Wednesday -- one of the biggest travel days of the year -- the forecast will be average for most of the country. Wet travel conditions will likely be confined to the Pacific Northwest, parts of northern New York and New England. Expect intermittent showers in Florida.
Interior portions of the Northeast and Midwest likely will remain cold through next weekend as two cold fronts push through the regions.
On the West Coast, storms and strong winds are possible; however, chances of severe weather such as hail and tornadoes are low.
So, the weather looks OK, but traffic is a different story.
