If this week’s weather was a Thanksgiving feast, you’d want to gobble up the nicer, milder temperatures on the way and ignore the side dish of rain between Wednesday and Thursday.
Anyone hitting the road should plan for the half-inch of rainfall expected Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.
Before the holiday, break out warmer layers. On Tuesday, morning temperatures are near-freezing in some areas and highs will be around 50 degrees. It will be mostly sunny during the day.
On Wednesday, a big surge of warm air is set to elevate temperatures and bring rain chances.
Travelers may want to hit the road earlier in the day to avoid evening rain.
During the day, skies will be mostly cloudy as highs reach the low to mid-50s.
Showers are expected to begin after 6 p.m. Wednesday and there's an 80% chance of rain on Thanksgiving morning.
Thursday afternoon will stay cloudy and damp as occasional showers pass through. Rain chances will fall throughout the day, declining to 20% by the time it gets dark and you're looking for second helpings of pie.
Cloudy, damp weather is set to stick around for the afternoon on Turkey Day, but it will be warmer with highs in the low to mid-60s.
