If you plan to drive to or from a parent’s home on Thanksgiving Day, traffic can be an issue, but the weather isn’t. Expect decent weather for the day in Utah – and even better for the rest of the weekend.

According to the National Weather Service, there is a sun forecast for most of the week. Expect highs in the 40s and 50s Monday and Tuesday before a 20% chance of snow late Tuesday, when temperatures drop into the upper 20s.

Highs will be in the upper 30s on Wednesday, but clear skies will return. And the weather will be sunny with a high of nearly 42 in Salt Lake City on Thanksgiving Day. The average high for this date in Salt Lake City is 46 degrees, so it will be a little cooler than normal.

Then it will warm up with expected highs of 49, 50 and 52 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Residents of southern Utah can expect temperatures about 10 degrees warmer than those of northern Utah throughout the week. There is no precipitation in the forecast until Sunday.

In St. George, it will be in your 50s on Monday and Tuesday, 40 on Wednesday, and around 51 on Thanksgiving Day – eight degrees cooler than normal. Temperatures will reach the mid-50s on Friday, the upper 50s on Saturday and around 60 on Sunday.
