Bring your sunglasses and earmuffs, it’s going to be cold and sunny this morning – 8am

After temperatures dropped into the 20s in some parts of the state last night, Thanksgiving morning will bring blue skies and frozen ground. It’s one of those mornings when you want your sunglasses and winter coat. Don’t let the sun fool you, wrap up.

Expect temperatures in the 40s for those 10 a.m. kickoffs, with a further 5 degrees warmer by midday. The wind should be light and no precipitation is expected.

And be careful on the streets. The low sun slows traffic at this time of year, even when the weather is otherwise perfect. Some of the busier places on Route 128 as well as the Mass Pike can see a traffic jam just because people aren’t comfortable in those places.
