Sunshine and spectacular weather are in store for this year's Fountain Hills Thanksgiving Parade.

Storms from the Pacific Northwest will track well north of the region and will stay far enough away to allow light winds for the parade.

Temperatures will climb quickly as they usually do, from the lower 60s at the start of the parade at 9:00 a.m. reaching the middle 70s by the time the parade concludes around 11:00 a.m. MST.

The dry, sunny weather will continue through the weekend.

As a storm drops southeastward over the central Rockies, patchy clouds and a little wind are possible early next week.
