FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — An area of low pressure brought rounds of rain to northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio Wednesday.
That system will not be an issue for Thanksgiving 2020.
It will be a mostly cloudy, mild and dry day.
Afternoon temperatures are expected to top out in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
Typically this time of the year high temperatures are in the middle 40s, so not bad!
Last year, Thanksgiving was dry and a little chilly with a high of 41 degrees.
Since 1950, the high has only been below 32 degrees seven times on Turkey Day.
The overnight low is a different story where the temperature has registered below 32 degrees 47 times.
Over the past 70 years, there have only been 17 Thanksgiving’s with a snow depth of a trace or more.
The highest snowfall total of four inches occurred on November 27, 1980.
According to the NWS Northern Indiana, the snow depth has been zero approximately 75% of the time.
Thanksgiving 2020 will go down as mild, but not the warmest.
That record was 63 degrees on November 22, 1973.
Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving.
