Cold Turkey

After a slight warm-up this past weekend where high temperatures jumped into the lower 50s, it looks like temperatures will drop yet again just in time for Thanksgiving.  How big of a jump?  We're talking highs topping out in the low 30s. Before you think about filling up on stuffing, turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie in order to hibernate through the rest of the winter, here are a couple of statistics from past Thanksgiving's to make you feel just a little bit better.  

According to the National Weather Service of Northern Indiana, since 1950, the coldest high temperature for Thanksgiving was 26° set back in 1952.   Plus, over the last 62 years, only seven of them have seen highs less than or equal to 32°.  To put that into perspective, the average high for this time of year is 43°.  Temperatures are forecast for around 30° Thursday, that would make it the 5th coldest.  Check out the top five coldest high temperatures on the Thanksgiving chart to the right for more information and do not forget to stick with ABC57 First Warning Neighborhood forecast as we get closer and closer to the holiday filled with thanks.
