Mostly sunny and chilly for Thanksgiving Day

Friday, 24 Nov, 2017

Overnight skies should be clear, and the air should be cold with a low around 27 degrees. Winds will be breezy out of the south at 10 to 20 miles per hour, gusting to 25 miles per hour.

It is going to be a sunny and cool day with highs around 60. This will cause temperatures to gradually warm up, as well.

Saturday night, the low will be 34 with mostly clear skies, according to the weather service.

Highs across the Inland Northwest are expected to be in the 50s and low-60s by Thanksgiving.

We will likely have to wait until Wednesday of next week to see our next shot at rain. Highs reach the mid to upper 40s along/west of the Blue Ridge, and low 50s in Central and Southside VA.
