First Alert Forecast: Dry Thanksgiving ahead!
Unsettled Pattern Takes Hold (Source: WLBT)

Thanksgiving is looking dry as well, with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will top out in the low 70s after dropping into the upper 40s Thursday morning.

More storms are in the forecast for Friday as a warm front lifts into the state... Some of these could be strong-severe as we start out the day with a quick break from most of the activity by the start of the weekend. The low pressure system will then move overhead by Sunday, allowing for another round of showers and storms, potentially some strong storms in the morning and lunchtime hours... We’ll watch these trends closely and keep you posted as we get closer to the weekend.

By next week, MUCH colder air will be moving in and we’ll likely see our first freeze of the season. Temperatures will be starting off below-freezing both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and wind chills will be even colder than that! Feels like temperatures may not exceed the 40s each afternoon. December will certainly start off feeling like winter!
