Thanksgiving Forecast: Dry and chilly

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Happy Thanksgiving! If you're hitting the roads to visit family today, you'll need the jacket and the sunglasses. Leave the rain gear at home!

Today & Tonight
The forecast for your Turkey Day looks pretty good. After a few morning clouds, we'll see a mix of sun and clouds by the afternoon. It will be chilly, especially compared to the upper 60s some saw on Wednesday. Daytime highs will be in the low to mid-40s.

Tonight, we bring back a few more clouds and alternate between partly to mostly cloudy skies. Lows will drop to right around freezing.

Black Friday
If you plan to hit the stores early Friday morning, make sure you bundle up! The forecast will basically be a carbon copy of Thanksgiving with clouds early and some sunshine later. We'll get a touch warmer with highs in the mid to upper 40s.

If you still have a team in the high school football playoffs, you will be cold but dry Friday night. The rain chances will pick up in the overnight hours as lows drop to right around 40.

Extended Forecast
I bet you can't guess what kind of weather we're going to have this weekend! Oh, you guessed rain, just like we've seen the past two weekends? Well, you're a step ahead of me.

Rain chances will be around both days, but should become more scattered by late Sunday. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s. Lows on Saturday night will be in the upper 40s and drop to the mid-30s on Sunday night.

We're still keeping an eye on potential winter weather early next week, but based on what I'm seeing right now, if you're looking for some snow, don't get your hopes up. Temperatures look to stay warm enough both day and night while the moisture is around to keep most of it a cold rain or possibly a wintry mix in the valleys. The mountaintops, which are always colder, could see a little snow Monday and Monday night.

We'll keep you posted! Don't eat too much today!
