Rain will dominate this day before Thanksgiving, always seen as nightmarish by many; the rain could exacerbate travel problems. Today’s rain will roll in during the next few hours and continue up until right around when the evening rush hour usually begins. The high will be 49 today, and winds will start light, turning to the northwest at 5-10 mph late this morning with gusts up to 25 mph. Tonight, things gradually dry and clear out, with a low around 25. Winds will still be northwest at 5-10 mph, with gusts now up to 20 mph.
Thanksgiving itself will be mostly sunny with a high around 38, with a northwest wind at 5-10 mph, shifting to a more westerly wind later in the day. The high school football games in the morning will see temperatures mainly in the low to mid 30s; the Dracut Middies are taking on the Methuen Rangers tomorrow at 10 AM in Dracut (at the DHS football field). GO MIDDIES! For those who like the early Black Friday shopping, tomorrow night will be 27 and mostly clear with a light wind.
Black Friday is a pretty average day by late November standards, with the morning low and daytime high being right around average, before a warm Saturday and a cool Sunday.
Have a great day and safe travels!
