Thanksgiving weather coldest in a decade



Most of the snow showers brought to the region Wednesday by lake-effect pattern winds off Lake Michigan are coming to an end this evening as those winds have now shifted northward, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said.

As the winds relax, temperatures tonight will fall through the 20s into the upper teens by Thanksgiving morning. The end result will be wind chills that remain in the teens through the night, Simpson said.

Light winds will be in the region all day Thursday, making this year's edition of the Turkey Trot in Miamisburg the coldest since 2005 when temperatures in the region also dipped into the teens.

Even though a bit more sun is expected on Thanksgiving, it won't be enough to send temperatures above freezing. This Thanksgiving shapes up to be the coldest in the last decade and one of only three that fail to clear the freezing mark temperature wise in the last half century.

Only twice since the 1890s has the temperature in the area remained in the 20s on Turkey Day.

Shoppers on Black Friday will have sunny skies and morning temperatures in the low 20s to deal with, but a slight warming trend will allow temperatures to rise in to the upper 30s during the afternoon.

THANKSGIVING REGIONAL TRAVEL FORECAST:

Areas to the north of the area will have to deal with scattered snow squalls, especially closer to Lake Michigan. Several inches of snow was expected from lake effect snow bands in northern Indiana, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Rich Wirdzek said.

Areas south of the region will likely have to deal with dry conditions.

Eastern parts of Ohio, western Pennsylvania and much of New York state will deal with heavy snow. Rain and wind will be the primary concern for most major cities on the East Coast, Wirdzek said.

Areas to our west will deal with lake effect snow bands that will impact eastern and central Indiana. Areas west of Indiana will be dry.
