Sunny Wednesday, some rain Thanksgiving, cloudy Friday

- This Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, is looking dry and quiet. That should be great for all the holiday travelers. However, Thanksgiving itself will be less than perfect with some rain showers moving in.

Wednesday’s temperatures started out cold, in the 20s in many areas, but FOX 29’s meteorologist Scott Williams reports the sun is shining and it’ll stay that way for most of the day. Expect it to be clear and cold. Highs will be in the upper 40s to about 50. That’s just below the average high of 53.

Then, late Wednesday afternoon, clouds will move in. The evening should be mostly cloudy, but areas in the far north and west may see sleet or flurries.

Thanksgiving will start cloudy, but dry and quiet with a high of about 53.

In the late morning, an area of rain that stretches from Chicago down to Memphis will arrive.

Scott says the holiday will not be a washout, but you may have to dodge some light showers. Otherwise, it’ll stay cloudy and the rain should move out by Thursday night.

Friday will stay cloudy and the high temperature should be about 56.

Thinking about putting up holiday decorations outside? Scott suggests Wednesday and Friday as the best days to put them up, but not on Thanksgiving.
