All in all, travel across the nation looks pretty good from a weather perspective. Rain will hold off until the evening hours to break out along a cold front as it moves through the Ozarks. This is shaping up to be the heaviest rain our area has seen all month with general totals of a quarter to a half an inch.
The rain will be on the way out by sunrise Thanksgiving Day. Temperatures will be much colder too with readings falling into the 30s. Clouds will take a little longer to clear out, but skies should brighten by late morning with skies becoming sunny during the afternoon. Temperatures will struggle to climb as colder air pours in behind the cold front with afternoon highs only in the low to mid-40s.
Winds will ease Thursday night with temperatures tumbling into the low to mid-20s by Friday morning. The morning cold will give way to a bright and crisp day with afternoon highs in the low 50s.
