We are supposed to have a low of 60 that night, so it won't be so bad.

Remember, these are the daytime highs, not the morning lows.

Note this map automatically updates each day, so it always shows 2 days from now.

My husband remembered that he had a "Mr. Heater" popane heater from last years ice storm. They sell them at Walmart and right on the back it says they are safe for tents. Looks like we girls will be warm this year!

Here is the difference in forecast low temperatures from normal averages for Thanksgiving day. Colder in parts of the west, warmer in much of the east.

Note that these are automatically updating each day, so on Thanksgiving, this will show BF forecast.

Here in socal the lows are supposed to be in the high 40's, and as silly as this sounds that might be enough to keep people away. People around here are not used to anything under 60 and are the biggest weather wimps I've ever seen. I can't remember the last time it was in the 40's...and I guarantee people weren't outside when it was. I would be willing to bet that people in our line will be dressed heavier than people in lines where the temp is 20 degrees cooler.

Oakland, CA -- It's going to be a beautiful shopping day here! "Sunny, with a high near 66. North northwest wind between 5 and 8 mph." Thanksgiving night will be clear with a low of 45, for any of you planning on getting in lines around the Bay Area. Dress warmly and get lots of deals! Good luck and be careful out there!
