GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Thanksgiving looks cooperative for those planning to travel.
Even with a cold front slipping through the state Thanksgiving Day, it will remain quiet throughout the region and great for traveling.
The cold front will knock temperatures down considerably after Thanksgiving. So beware, Black Friday shoppers: You’ll want to bundle up with highs only in the 30s.
It’s rather unusual for this time of year to not have at least one significant system impacting travel across the U.S. but that appears to be the case for 2023.
The colder air will dig it’s heals in after Thanksgiving. We haven’t had back-to-back days in the 30s since mid-March. The next question is with the cold will we get snow?
The answer is eventually “yes” with snow potentially arriving Sunday. It maybe enough to give us light accumulations on the grass.
Grand Rapids typically sees the first 1 inch of accumulating snow on Nov. 19 with the first 3 inches of snowfall on Dec. 6.
