It looks like the Thanksgiving Day holiday is going to be pretty mild.
That’s the word from Storm Team4 meteorologist Chad Merrill, who said we’re headed for a “picture-perfect Thanksgiving.”
A few high cirrus clouds will filter the sun on occasion today. Also, high pressure will lead to another A+ day across the DMV with high temperatures once again around 60 degrees. Clouds will increase ahead of a warm front tonight
Depending on when you’re heading back from the holiday, you could be facing some rain: Late Friday morning into early afternoon, and then again on Sunday morning, looks rainy, according to Merrill’s forecast — but the temperatures will still be relatively mild, in the upper 50s on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
