FOX 61 Forecast: Mild Temperatures For Black Friday

The Hartford Courant

Black Friday is the unofficial start to the holiday season. The number of homes and retailers with Christmas decorations will explode over the coming days. But you don’t need a thick holiday sweater this year. Temperatures will start in the mid-upper 40s for the morning doorbusters.  Then near-record warmth is expected by afternoon with highs near 60 degrees! This weekend will be cooler with the chance for a few showers Saturday. Sunday looks sunny and ideal for travel after Thanksgiving weekend.

A soaking rain is possible heading into late Tuesday – Wednesday of next week. Yes, rain and NOT snow even though it will be the beginning of December! We’ll take the rain since the majority of the state is still in a moderate drought!

We are still on pace for making the top ten for the warmest November on record.

From all of us on the Weather Watch team, have a wonderful Thanksgiving – we’re grateful for all of you!
