A decent chance of mild weather around Thanksgiving, forecasters say

    After the coldest air of the season invades this Tuesday and Wednesday, there’s a decent chance that mild weather will arrive for Thanksgiving week, forecasters say. 

    In a temperature outlook issued today, the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center is calling for a 40 to 50 percent chance of above normal temperatures between Nov. 24 and Nov. 30. 

    The current forecast calls for the cold air to retreat into Canada during that period.

    In Toms River, the average high temperature on Nov. 27 is 52.3 degrees, according to the Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist. 

    Details will emerge during the upcoming week.
