Blessed By A Quiet Weather Day

On this Thanksgiving Day, we can all be thankful that the weather is not as crazy as it sometimes is for the holiday.

This Thanksgiving will feature plentiful sunshine during the day as you head to grandmother's house for the big feast. Afternoon highs will be in the mid to upper 30s and the winds will be fairly light making for a fairly decent holiday, but historically speaking, that has not always been the case in years past.

The coldest ever Thanksgiving Day for Omaha was -2° set in 1877.

As far as snow is concerned, the biggest snowfall for Omaha for the week of Thanksgiving was 10" during 1983. But the heaviest snow for Thanksgiving Day itself was 2.9" which fell in 1931.

By the way, the last time it snow for Thanksgiving Day in Omaha was November 26, 1981 with 0.3" of snow, and there was a trace of snow on Thanksgiving on November 26, 2007.
