Boston Weather: 45.0°F | Light Rain

Weather: The Cold Turkey and Shopping Week

By Efren Gutierrez
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- The Thanksgiving week is finally here, and before we all go home to be with our families, some rain may be in store for us. A cold front will pass through Boston later today, bringing with it some light showers. Once it moves off into the Atlantic Ocean, temperatures should drop significantly. The Indian summer we had this past weekend will be gone, and Boston’s true winter will begin.

For those who will be leaving Boston for Thanksgiving, you will find that most of America is under a high pressure zone. However, I’m sad to report that the Pacific Northwest, as usual during this time of year, will have rain on Thanksgiving.

The high pressure will remain in control on toward the weekend, so those of you who plan to go shopping for Christmas presents the day after Thanksgiving will have a wonderful shopping experience.

Extended Forecast:

Today: Partly cloudy skies, giving way to light showers. High 55 F (13 C)

Tonight: Light showers, ending by midnight. Low 33 F (0 C)

Wednesday: Mostly clear, but cold. High in the upper 40’s F.

Thanksgiving: Partly cloudy. High in the mid 40’s F.

Friday(shopping day): Partly cloudy. High in the mid 40’s F.
