Thanksgiving Day Forecast

Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then near 190F. The
kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the
cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder.
During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will
slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches
on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry
sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Please pass the gravy. A
weight watch and indigestion warning have been issued for the entire
area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the
evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers,
dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.
Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high
pressure to eat sandwiches will be established.
Flurries of leftovers can be expected both
days with a 50 percent chance of scattered
soup late in the day. We expect a warming
trend where soup develops. By early next
week, eating pressure will be low as the
only wish left will be the bone.
