Charlotte, N.C., will put on the 65th Annual Belk Carolinas' Carrousel Parade on Thanksgiving Day under a mostly sunny sky.

"It will be a pleasant day with a high temperature of 64 degrees F," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Erik Pindrock.

Light winds are forecast for the event.

The parade will begin at 10 a.m. EST on Thursday and is estimated to last for two hours and thirty minutes.

Even more great news is in store. For Black Friday shoppers, the dry, mild weather will continue with temperatures reaching well into the 60s.

Much cooler weather will reach the Carolinas this weekend, however.

High temperatures in the Charlotte area will be in the 50s. Temperatures will plunge well down into the 20s Saturday night with a hard freeze.
