Thanksgiving in the Twin Cities:
1991-2004

Weather conditions on Thanksgiving over the past fourteen years have ranged from mild and pleasant, to snowy and chilly. Three times out of the last fourteen years there has been a high of 50 degrees or higher. There has also been at least one inch of snow on the ground five of the last fourteen years. It is interesting to note while there was six inches on the ground for Thanksgiving in 1991 it was not from the Halloween Blizzard. Most of the snow from the Halloween Blizzard melted in only three weeks.
