No More Icy, Wet Weather: Thanksgiving Forecast Is Sunny, Slightly Warmer

After three days of cold, wet weather, Georgians can look forward to sunny and slightly warmer conditions throughout Thanksgiving and the weekend.

“It will do nothing but improve from now to then,” said National Weather Service meteorologist George Wetzel on Wednesday afternoon.

Wetzel says the winds will start dying down on Wednesday night, leading to cooler temperatures on Thursday morning. Despite a morning temperature drop into the lower 20s, Thursday afternoon will be sunny and clear, with a high near 52 degrees. That’s good news for last-minute travelers.

“There should be no weather-related travel problems on Thanksgiving day,” said Wetzel.

While highs in the 50s will continue into Sunday, early morning Black Friday shoppers should prepare to face below-freezing temperatures. The forecast calls for a possible low of 28 degrees.
