RICHMOND, Va. -- A mid-week storm will push mild air into the region for the middle and end of the week.

(These maps show the forecast afternoon highs)

The rain from this storm will be to our west most of Wednesday, but some of that rain will enter western Virginia towards evening.

Rain will spread across the state Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

It looks like the storm will exit to the east Thursday afternoon, so rain chances after the morning will be low.

Here is a closer look at the timing of the rain:

Highs on Thursday will be in the mid to upper 60s.

When you average out all of the Thanksgivings in Richmond weather history, highs are normally in the mid to upper 50s.

Here is a plot of where highs have ended up since 1897:

Rain has fallen in just over one-quarter of Thanksgivings, and although snow is rare, it has occurred.

Happy Thanksgiving!
