The next weather maker is shaping up to be less impressive than previous weather model data had been showing for Thanksgiving. The latest indications are a cold front will be heading our way on Turkey Day and may spark scattered rain or snow showers. The outlier model is the European model, which shows a risk of rain mixing with and changing to periods of snow on Thanksgiving night. At this time, that isn’t looking like the most probable outcome, but no less something we’ll be watching in the week ahead. The weather shouldn’t prevent you from getting to grandma’s house for family gatherings. Ditto for those who may be taking part in a Turkey Trot. Highs on Thursday are in the mid to upper 30s.
