Happy Monday everyone! We have officially made it to the Thanksgiving week and we have a great looking 7-day forecast for it too. Buckle up, because it's going to be a roller coaster ride of temperatures through the week but I think you'll be pleasantly surprised how the week turns out.

Today we will move the mercury into the upper 50s and low 60s under partly to mostly sunny skies. The good news, besides being 15-20 degrees above normal, there will be no wind. It will still be present, but from the southwest at 5 -10 miles per hour. A cold front will swing through this evening/overnight which will shift the wind to the northwest and bring down cold air from Canada. Temperatures to start Tuesday morning will be in the teens and 20s.

After we hit a high point Monday, we will fall to a low point for Tuesday. Highs will be in the upper 20s to low 30s across the region. Talk about a huge difference. Another difference will be the wind. Northwest wind at 15 to 25 miles per hour sustained with gusts up to 35 will make for a very cold and blustery day. We have another wind shift on Wednesday, back to the south with highs saying into the upper 30s to low 40s. Good news is we should be sitting under a good amount of sun.

The forecast for Thanksgiving is looking fantastic. It looks like we will see temperatures above average in the 40s and 50s! Keeping the sun around as well, it will be a great day to travel to see family, or get outside and fry that turkey! ....Just uh, make sure you have the fire extinguisher around!

You really can't complain about the rest of the holiday weekend, that is, unless you've really been wanting snow. Another warm day with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s for Friday...which is great weather for standing in those Black Friday shopping lines. Saturday and Sunday will be in the low 40s under sunny skies. Another great couple of days to take advantage of no snow and get those Christmas lights and decorations up!
