DC-Area Forecast: Morning Showers, Mild Thanksgiving 2020

Storm Team4 has the Thanksgiving week 2020 forecast for D.C., Maryland and Virginia

NBC Universal, Inc.

The 2020 Thanksgiving forecast is looking wet and mild, with skies clearing in the afternoon just enough for outdoor plans.

Expect rain showers early this morning, pushing out through the middle part of the morning.

Temperatures will continue to rise to near 70° for areas that get a little bit more sunshine by this afternoon. Those with more cloud cover will stick to the 60s.

Either way daytime highs today will be well above average. Our average temperature for this time of year is 54°.

A cold front will sweep through the region later this afternoon and could bring a spotty shower but again most of the rain will dry quickly.

Health officials have advised people to celebrate Turkey Day at home due to the pandemic, but say that meeting family and friends outdoors is the safer bet.

Continuing rain and cloudiness make the morning great for cooking inside.

Occasional showers shouldn't wash out your plans to eat a slice of pie on the porch or throw a football around with friends or extended family. Wear water-resistant shoes and keep an umbrella handy just in case.

Sunshine will return on Friday as the cooler and drier arrives. Highs will still get above 60°.

The forecast is looking up for Saturday but a rain chance can't be ruled out. Sunday is when the D.C. area is set to get sunshine and have highs rise into the mid- to upper 50s.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
