The Chicago area got an early taste of snow just before Thanksgiving, but that likely won't stick through the holiday.
And it turns out, that's not unusual.
The Chicago area is set to see partly cloudy, dry and mild conditions, with highs in the upper 40s and low 50s Thursday.
According to an analysis of weather data from the last 10 Thanksgivings, only one has seen snow. And that year, 2014, saw just trace amounts. There has been no measurable snowfall reported on any Thanksgiving in the last decade.
And temperatures aren't setting any records either.
The warmest Thanksgiving since 2011 was recorded on Nov. 22, 2012, when the area saw a high of 63 degrees. The coldest, which took place in 2014 alongside the trace amounts of snow, saw a low of 15 degrees.
On Nov. 26, 2015 the area saw its wettest Thanksgiving of the last 10 years with .42" of rain.
The good news is, there is no rain in the holiday forecast as of Tuesday. According to data, five of the past 10 Thanksgivings have had rain, however.
Meanwhile, the partly cloudy skies aren't unusual either. Only one of the past five Thanksgivings has been “sunny," defined by weather terms as 50% or more sunshine.
Expect partly sunny and mild conditions to stick around through the weekend, with highs staying in the 40s and 50s for several days. There is, however, a chance for showers on Sunday.
