Happy Thanksgiving

We hope you are having great Thanksgiving with family, harvest, and warmth, but mindful of those who are without.
The weather is as uneventful as it can be this Thanksgiving. Temperatures are near seasonal averages and moderate slightly Friday and Saturday. A front blows through Saturday evening adding clouds and a barely-worth-mentioning potential for a stray light afternoon shower or sprinkles (not enough to change any outdoor plans you have). Sunday will be cooler and breezy.

The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography from the RaysWeather.Com Photo Contest. It has climate information for the entire Parkway and includes pages for November/December 2017 so you can hang it on the wall now. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com or at many retail outlets across the region.

Forecast Discussion

I've doing this for nearly 20 years and never had an easier Thanksgiving Day forecast.

The center of high pressure slides east across the Eastern U. S. into the Atlantic today through Saturday. Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday are clear with gradually moderating temperatures. We have more cloudiness Saturday with only the slightest chance of a light afternoon shower or sprinkles.

A front passes through Saturday evening west to east. Expect breezy conditions Saturday night and Sunday with cooler temperatures.

Monday through Wednesday we repeat the process of high pressure lumbering across the Eastern U. S. with lots of sun and gradually moderating temperatures. There's no weather of significance in sight.
