We couldn't ask for better weather this Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but it's bound to change and change it will.


What a perfect Thanksgiving forecast.  With a big dome of high pressure overhead, an almost cloud-free sky is expected and temperatures will be rather mild with highs in the upper 50s around Washington. 

Slightly warmer for Black Friday; although, with many stores opening Thursday night it will be a little chilly for the start of Black Friday shopping (lows falling into the 30s and low 40s).  Friday highs will climb to near 60 degrees, but don't get used to the mild weather, as temperatures will tumble by the weekend after a strong cold front slides through late Friday night.  The cold air will already move into the Upper Midwest by Friday.  Take a look at the forecast highs for Friday.

Forecast Highs Friday

I don't think we'll see much in the way of any precipitation from the cold front.  You'll mainly notice increasing clouds late Friday and the winds picking up.  Bundle up over the weekend with high temperatures *only in the mid to upper 40s!
