From Thanksgiving Day through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, South Floridians are in for a pleasant stretch of weather that includes a lot of sun, some clouds, moderate temperatures and only a slight chance of rain.

The record low for November 22 in Boston was 9 degrees (set in 1879) and the record minimum high was 24 degrees (in 1880).

Lingering snow continues on Friday in the mountains. The last several years have been relatively mild and closer to normal.

"A frontal system from the West will then intensify in the Plains on Friday and could develop into a coastal storm for the East Coast during the weekend", the NWS said in a Sunday tweet. Officials warned travelers of the plummeting temperatures over the holiday and urged them to pack cold-weather emergency auto kits, which include blankets, warm clothes, an ice scraper and food and water.
