It was the warmest Thanksgiving Day since record-keeping began at the nearest NWS station to have those statistics. The afternoon high was 57°f there and at the little airport closer to home, it was 60°.
There was some driving rain and 40mph wind gusts. I thought that the wind advisories had those conditions promised to Montana but it looks like it pretty much hit here.
The Weather Service pointed out that the record low for Thanksgiving was -8° in 1985, when there was also 11" of snow on the ground. I remember that. I'd moved a little closer to Mom & Dad that year (not far from where I now live). It was a 30 mile drive to their house and we had decided that we were not going another 45 miles to have turkey day with my brother. Actually, there has been much colder weather in late November but it must have missed the movable feast of Thanksgiving.
I understand that the weather is warm across much of the US this year. I hope that means safer highways.
