Thanksgiving Day in Northeast Georgia will be cloudy and seasonal, although the evening could be wet.

A cold front will roll in Thursday evening and may bring rain showers to the region, said forecaster Mike Leary of the National Weather Service's office in Peachtree City.

According to Leary, Thursday could have cloudy skies with daytime highs in the mid-60s.

There's a 40 percent chance rain will fall at night in some areas as the temperature dips to the low 50s.

Leary said bring an umbrella if you're planning on standing in line outside stores Friday morning for those Black Friday shopping deals.

The rain is likely to continue Friday, with temperatures in the mid-50s during the day.

Forecasters predict the weather will continue to be cool into the weekend.

Saturday morning is expected to be in the low 30s, Leary said.

Rain is relatively common on Thanksgiving Day in Northeast Georgia, Leary said.

In regards to extreme temperatures across the northern part of the state, 1950 was a record-setting year for Thanksgiving as Atlanta saw a low temperature of 3 degrees.

In 1921, Athens reported its highest temperature on Nov. 25 of 78 degrees, according to the NWS website.
