ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – We have some fantastic weather ahead of us today that will feature not just quiet sunshine, but also some comfortable temperatures. All of this is happening on what is typically one of the busiest travel days of the year! High pressure is providing us with abundant sunshine with just a hint of a south breeze. High temperatures will be slightly warmer than they were on Tuesday with afternoon readings today topping out in the mid and upper 40s across the area, making this the warmest day of the week and the mildest in a couple of weeks. As winds will be light throughout the day, wind chill indices will be in the 30s and 40s for much of the day, not bad by seasonal standards.

Thanksgiving Thursday will be the cloudiest day of the week thanks to that storm system that will brush past the local area to the south, but our overall weather is looking halfway decent.

Temperatures will climb to the low 40s in the midday hours before slowly falling to the mid-30s around sunset.
