Our Wednesday begins with temps mostly in the teens and thick frost to contend with on the windshield. Temperatures will rise comfortably to mid-30s to near 40 under mostly sunny skies. Areas of fog will begin to develop after sunset with widespread freezing fog expected by early Thursday morning. Thanksgiving Day travel will have to contend with poor visibility. The moisture near the surface may result in freezing drizzle. It will otherwise be a gray day with highs in the mid-30s. A chance for light snow begins near International Falls in the morning and gradually tapers off as it moves southeastward across the Northland through the day.

Post-holiday travel currently looks to be pleasant. Friday through the weekend should feature a quiet stretch. Saturday will be mild with 40s possible in the warm spots, then temps get knocked back down to upper 20s to low 30s on Sunday.
