It's windy and it’s sunny. Our guests have yet to arrive, but most of the work is done. Turkey is a great meal because it just cooks itself. I love this holiday it's about family and food two of my favorite things. The weather is cold, feeling more like Christmas.

I'll be updating the forecast for the week on Twitter at @growingwisdom Please follow me there. Feel free to comment or ask questions too.

Temperatures will fall back this evening to the teens in the suburbs and lower 20s in the urban centers. Winds are going to die back after the sun goes down.

Friday is a big shopping day for some, I can't think of anything I would rather do less, but I know many of you look forward to this day. The weather is going to cooperate. Sunshine will be abundant and without the wind our temperatures in the lower 30s will feel not as cold.

Friday night brings another cold night and readings may actually fall to readings slightly colder than tonight. Roads will remain dry as there is zero percent change of any precipitation. Saturday brings more sunshine to start, yet there will be a few clouds later in the day. Highs will be very similar, making it just above freezing.

As milder air moves northward Saturday night and Sunday a clouds and some spotty precipitation will cross the region. At night it will be cold enough to snow. On Sunday, any snow showers will change to rain showers. I wouldn't be surprised if many areas didn't see any precipitation, but some of you will. There shouldn't be enough to cause any slick spots. The image below shows a bit of spotty precipitation later Sunday, mostly west of the area.

Early next week looks mainly dry and a bit cooler than average. Highs will reach towards 40F each afternoon and fall back to the upper 20s and lower 30s during the day.
Presently, I don't see any snowstorms in sight. In spite of the fact the weather has been quite cold this month we still haven't seen any significant snow. Snowfall in December typical averages a few inches along the south coast and Cape Cod to closer to a foot well inland and out towards the Berkshires.

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving weekend and find some time to relax in this hectic time of year.

Around the House This Week
I know some of you are already thinking about Christmas trees. Did you ever consider there are great trees you can add to the landscape that make great Christmas trees? Even if you don't decorate the tree, it will still be a wonderful addition in the landscape.
