    Have a Great Thanksgiving!Have a Great Thanksgiving!

    For today, it will be nothing more than perfect! It will even feel a lot like fall as well! High temperatures will be in the lower 60s, so most of the day temperatures will be in the 50s! Along with the cooler temperatures, we will have more sunny skies and low humidity. This is great weather to get outside before (or after) the big meal! If you’re heading out tonight for Black Friday deals, the weather should be really nice! There will likely be no clouds in the sky.
