FORECAST: Rain returns for Thanksgiving Day

Posted at 5:45 AM, Nov 24, 2021

CLEVELAND — Making holiday travel plans? Mother Nature has some speed bumps heading our way.

Widespread rain showers are likely through your Turkey Day as a cold front slides east through the region. Showers should diminish a bit by mid to late afternoon. High temperatures will hover in the middle 40s during the day.

It's all followed by much colder air Thursday night and Friday. We're in the 30s heading into the big shopping weekend. We may even work some Lake Effect snow in Friday and early Saturday. If you get under a snow band through Friday afternoon in the snow belt, expect 1-3 inches of accumulation. Most of us will just see flurries or light snow showers Thursday night and Friday

Another quick moving clipper system could bring another light mix of snow and possibly rain for Sunday as some of you are trying to get back home.

Have a great holiday week and travel safely!
