SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

The countdown is on, Thanksgiving is just a couple days away. It is a wonderful time of year to spend with friends and family, and to make new memories. Although for some it leads to a travel nightmare, especially if the weather impacts your travel plans.  

Lucky for us, the weather is cooperating in Mid-Michigan this year. For the big travel day on Wednesday, weather conditions look good. High temperatures are holding in the mid 30s, with mostly sunny skies. On Thanksgiving, Thursday November 23rd, we will have dry conditions and partly cloudy skies with temperatures climbing into the upper 30s to lower 40s.

But that hasn't always been the case. Some years, low temperatures dropped down into the single digits. And some years we’ve had high temperatures soaring in the 60s. Living in Michigan we’ve also had our fair share of snow and rain landing on this holiday.

Last year (2016) high temperatures were in the mid-30s with a light wind and no measurable precipitation.

Scroll down and look at some of the previously recorded statistics from the National Weather Service. Find out what year was the coldest, warmest, wettest and had the deepest snowpack based on location.
