Looks like the New York City area can be thankful for good weather, at least for most of the week, this Thanksgiving.

The forecast with temperatures reaching the near-to-low 50s and with dry conditions.

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade featured very seasonable conditions, with temperatures in the 40s for the morning as it continues to warm up a bit. These are ideal conditions for any backyard football games in the afternoon, or for those who deep fry their turkey outside.

However, a few showers are possible on Black Friday. If you are planning on shopping, don't worry! It won't be a complete washout as the few possible showers will not be all day and are not expected to be terribly heavy. It will clear out by around noon, and then it’ll get breezy.

The tri-state area will enjoy a quick break at the start of the weekend, with Saturday expected to be a dry day before more impactful rain moves in Sunday.

Although showers are expected Sunday, it will not be throughout the day. The rain could impact all the northeastern airports at some point in the day, even down to the Mid-Atlantic and southeast. Winds will also intensify later in the day and into Monday, bringing gusts up to 30 mph. This could slow down people’s return trips as the broad area of rain moves up the east coast. 

Meanwhile, next week kicks off in the 50s with mostly sunny skies ahead of the Rockefeller Tree lighting on Wednesday, which as of now looks like it could be a bit wet. But there's still plenty of time for things to change, and Storm Team 4 will keep track of the forecast accordingly. (For more information on the 2022 Rockefeller Tree Lighting, click here.)
