Weather in the Foothills

The sun rises on Thanksgiving Day at  6:29 a.m. A day of gratitude, family and friends.
High pressure has moved in, pushing the rains of last week off the weather maps.
Another inch of much needed precipitation was added to our season’s total.
Northeast winds blow through the canyons passes starting Thursday morning.
Keeping cloudy conditions to the north of us will most likely be the case.
So, as usual with weather predictions, they remain “up in the air” until weather arrives.
Given these comes a guarantee of a day that will not disappoint any of us.
It looks as though clear to partly cloudy skies should prevail over the Foothills.
Varying predictions place Turkey Day’s thermometer reading between 70 and 80 degrees.
Increasing temperatures by the next day are expected – low 80s are possible.
Night falls early this time of year, the sun sets at 4:46 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
Gather around family and friends … give thanks. Blessings to you.
