Scattered Showers Will Give Way to Sunny Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND (WRIC)—The 8News StormTracker weather team is keeping a close eye on a storm system that could cause significant delays on the biggest travel day of the year.

The heaviest rain has come to an end, and now we're left with just scattered showers. The rain will stick around through 4 p.m., and a few wet snowflakes can't be ruled out after 2 p.m. as we cool down this afternoon.

The good news is that any chance of snow comes right at the tail end of this system as we end the precipitation, so accumulating snow is not in the forecast. Skies tonight are mostly clear, with a low around 26 degrees.

Thanksgiving morning starts off quite chilly. It'll stay cold, but sunny. Expect an afternoon high around 40 degrees and northwest winds 5-15 mph. It'll be a great day to stay inside to watch football and eat, but also a great day to get outside and burn off some of that filling meal, as long as you bundle up.

Skies stay clear with a low around 23 degrees. If you're out early for the Black Friday deals, expect temperatures in the 20s early on. During the day, we'll see full sunshine and a high around 45 degrees. Temperatures slowly climb a few degrees each day into next week.
