Tracking the next strong cold front that will deliver a cold air mass to the eastern half of the country for the first half of Thanksgiving week. Cold air will begin spilling out of Canada into the Northern Plains on Sunday. This cold air mass will rush south and east into the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, and Tennesse Valley overnight Sunday. The colder air will eventually make its way into the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Northeast throughout the day on Monday. This colder air will stick around through Wednesday of Thanksgiving week. Take a look at the full Thanksgiving week forecast!
Temperatures will be 10-25 degrees below average for some areas along and east of the Mississippi River from Monday through Wednesday. This means high temperatures will struggle to even hit the freezing mark for parts of the Great Lakes and Northeast. Even high temperatures in the 40s are expected for parts of the Tennesse Valley and Southeast. Some 30s are expected for the mountains in North Carolina and Tennessee.
