MAINE (WGME) — Thanksgiving is nearing, and with an approaching snow and rain system on Tuesday and Wednesday, many may worry about holiday travel.
Thankfully, things will clear out and calm down for Turkey Day.
Both the coastal and inland forecasts predict ample sunshine, which will help to dry out any damp roads during the morning commute or travel.
The morning starts mostly clear and temperatures will be in the low 40s. However, when traveling early Thursday morning, the roads may be slick from the previous day’s rain and mixed precipitation. It will be breezy, with winds from the north-northwest 10-14 mph, and gusts up to 28 mph.
By lunchtime, the sun and temperatures in the upper 40s will clear roads up, just in time for turkey dinner. The sky will stay mostly clear for dessert in the late evening, with temperatures descending near 40 degrees.
The same idea goes for inland towns and cities. Wednesday’s snow and rain will likely impact morning holiday travel early Thursday morning. Temperatures will begin out in the upper 30s with partly sunny conditions.
Temperatures will linger in the upper 40s by early afternoon. Don’t be surprised if you see a couple of passing clouds.
The clouds will clear out by the evening, with temperatures dropping into the mid-to-upper 30s.
