‘Fairly nice and sunny’ before possible coastal storm on Black Friday


Turkey Day and the busy travel days leading up to the holiday should be quite pleasant and dry before a possible coastal storm on Black Friday could bring rain, gusty winds and flooding around the region.

After a cold and blustery Sunday, temperatures are expected to gradually rebound from the upper 30s and low 40s on Monday to the upper 40s and low 50s by Friday. The National Weather Service is forecasting dry conditions through Thanksgiving Day with the next chance for precipitation not coming until Friday.

While many travelers will be sitting in heavy traffic on Tuesday and Wednesday, at least the roads won’t be snow-packed and slick.

“It should be fairly nice and sunny,” Kyle Pederson, meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s Boston office, told the Herald on Sunday.

Following a very windy end of the weekend, it shouldn’t be nearly as breezy on Monday as temps rise into the low 40s. Conditions should be mostly sunny.

Then temps should jump into the upper 40s on Tuesday, along with sunny skies. Wednesday is expected to be even warmer with high temps hitting 50 degrees. Those are the biggest travel days, as AAA predicts 54.6 million people will travel 50 miles or more from home this Thanksgiving. Massachusetts travelers will account for more than 1.3 million of the 54.6 million.

Then Thanksgiving should be sunny with highs in the mid-40s. Turkey Trot road races in the morning will be in the 30s.

“It should be fairly seasonable for this time of year,” Pederson said.
