On Tuesday, don’t chicken out of going outside, since we will experience milder temperatures than the last few days have brought, with highs in the upper 50s and lows in the 40s. Wednesday morning and midday bring a chance of preci-pie-tation, before the rain quits cold-turkey by Wednesday evening. From Thanksgiving Day through the weekend, we will experience colder temperatures with highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s, with the brief exception of slightly warmer weather on Saturday. If you’re planning on camping out in mall parking lots the night before Black Friday, beware of chilly weather in the Northeast, although it should be above freezing elsewhere. Looking to the rest of the United States, there is a chance of rain in Florida on Thursday, and the upper Rockies will continue to experience their usual acc-yam-ulation of snow. In the Northwest, we can expect rain over the entire forecasting period - and more than a poultry amount; expect quite the dreary weather. So if you’ve de-cider-ed to fly home from Oregon or Washington on Sunday, keep an eye out for continuing rains. This weekend is a good time to appreciate - or lament - your hometown weather, because in Cambridge it only gets colder from here, good gravy!
