Thanksgiving's weather is for tons of sun, a few clouds, and cool temperatures.
This morning's upper 20's and lower 30's will be slow to warm. By 10:00, we warm under sunshine into the mid-to-upper 30's. By noon, temperatures will be near 40. Highs in the low-to-mid 40's will occur close to 2:00 before temperatures drop back to the 30's by 5:00 and 20's overnight.
We've been tracking a storm system in the Northeastern U.S. that could mean some problems for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. According to USAToday, floats for the parade are ground if sustained winds reach 23 mph or if gusts are over 34 mph. This morning's forecast from the National Weather Service in New York City is for winds that are just below that threshold. If that holds true, the parade should be good to go. If the wind is a little stronger, the floats could be grounded for just the second time since 1971. I'm favoring the slackening wind since the low pressure that is creating all that wind is moving away from the New York City area.
In Colorado, expect a mainly sunny forecast for Black Friday. Temperatures will recover into the 50's on Friday afternoon, but if you will be taking advantage of the overnight and early morning sales you will need a jacket as temperatures will likely be in the 20's.
