Weathercast: A sunny and mild Thanksgiving

 Lots of sunshine and temperatures not far from the averages appear to be in store for Thanksgiving.

A large high-pressure system centered in southern Canada will be establishing its reach over the Wilson Times area starting Wednesday night. The result is expected to be high temperatures Thursday in the upper 50s and a sometimes gusty breeze from the northwest. Chances of precipitation are minimal.

Until then, temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday are forecast to touch the mid- to upper 60s with overnight lows around 45. The best chance of showers occurs during the daytime Wednesday with the arrival of a cold front.

Friday's shoppers are probably going to be greeted by sunshine and morning lows in the mid-30s, followed by afternoon highs in the mid-50s.

The average high is 60 and average low in the upper 30s.

Chances of precipitation increase by Saturday evening.
