Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 3:58 a.m. Nov. 25, 2015

The next few days will be the nicest of the Thanksgiving holiday period.  Sunshine will be plentiful both Wednesday and on Thanksgiving Day.  Afternoon highs will reach the upper 50s Wednesday, and the low 60s Thursday.

A large storm in the West will disrupt travel for flyers headed west of the Mississippi River.  That storm will keep the Mid-Atlantic quite mild on Friday under increasing clouds.  We will start to feel the impacts on Saturday as rain chances come back into the area.  Those rain chances will continue into Sunday and potentially slow travel from D.C. north into New York and New England.

WEDNESDAY:  Sunny and nice. HIGHS: 53-59

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Clear skies, seasonably cold. LOWS: 34-40

THURSDAY: Sunny and nice, warmer. HIGHS: 58-63

(Average High 54;  Average Low 38)
