After a few days of 60 degree temperatures, Minneapolis should prepare for a Thanksgiving cool down.

Turkey Day may bring temperatures in the mid-50s, potentially dropping as much as ten degrees from earlier in the week. A dusting of snow is possible on the holiday.

Despite the drop, temperatures will still rank above average for this time of year.

The real chill will arrive Friday as cold air sinks in behind a cold front with sharp winds. The high of 29 degrees will have a real feel in the mid-20s.
