2009 Thanksgiving Day Forecast

Depending on where you live, Thanksgiving Day could be a bit soggy this year. The Farmers’ Almanac long range forecast warns wet weather could be in store for most parts of the United States during the upcoming holiday weekend. Here’s a breakdown:

Along the East Coast, from the Southeastern states to New England, a few days of dry, cold weather gives way to a wet Thanksgiving Day and a stormy weekend. Below the Great Lakes, a cold Canadian storm front will bring thundershowers mid-week, which will hang on for a soggy holiday, and possibly a snowy weekend in some areas. In the Pacific Northwest, very cold, wet weather will grip the region throughout the week, making Thanksgiving damp and chilly. Look for snow at higher elevations.

In the Great Plains, Rockies, South Central states and California, the weather will be dry, but bitterly cold, for Thanksgiving Day. Expect rain to follow over the weekend, except along the Southern Pacific coast, where intermittently cloudy skies will allow a bit of Sun to peek in.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
