Brandon Weatherz: Chilly and breezy Thanksgiving

November 23: Chilly and breezy Thanksgiving

Daily forecast from the Storm Track Weather Team

Cold air has settled into the region for Thanksgiving weekend. A blustery northwest wind is felt this morning, and it will continue to add a wind chill factor. Feels like temps are near zero in parts of northern Minnesota this morning, and they may dip a few degrees below zero Friday morning. Daytime highs range from near 20 by the Canadian border to upper 20s in northwest Wisconsin today under mostly sunny skies. An area of clouds may persist near the international border and produce flurries or light snow showers today, staying mostly north of the Iron Range. Lake effect snow is possible downstream of large inland lakes, as well as for the South Shore snowbelt today and tonight. Even here, accumulation would stay light, under an inch.

High pressure locks in sunshine Friday. The day begins with temps in single digits and low teens, then highs stay in mid-20s to low 30s. Saturday is mostly cloudy with highs in low to mid-30s. It’ll be a breezy weekend with a blustery southwest wind on Saturday and northwest wind on Sunday. Sunday does bring a widespread chance for snow showers, but most areas would stay under an inch of snow. South Shore lake effect would be the main concern for any accumulation leading to travel impacts Sunday into Monday.
