Thanksgiving Day Weather -- remarkably non-eventful without travel issues thanks to near record breaking strength of high pressure in control. Friday -- even warmer...but predominantly cloudy ahead of slowly advancing cold front that will be running out of steam. However rain showers will make it into the NW. portion of Vermont by late afternoon and spread southeast Friday evening. A transition from rain showers to snow showers will take place and along with a significant fall in temperature...we'll see icy conditions along with a dusting to about an inch of wet snow for early Saturday morning.
The Weekend however thereafter looks uneventful for travel as higher pressure will be making its mark and lasting through Monday night.
