INDIANAPOLIS — Even though it will be a chilly Thanksgiving Day across Indiana, you’ll likely need your sunglasses instead of your umbrella, ice scraper or snow shovel.


The National Weather Service says it will be partly sunny with a high of 44 on Thanksgiving Day throughout much of Indianapolis and central Indiana. 


Southern Indiana will likely see a high of 54, while a cold front will keep high temperatures in the northern parts of the state from reaching any higher than 35.


Rain chances return for Black Friday, but not until late in the evening in the Indianapolis area.  The National Weather Service says the rain may begin in Indy around 10 p.m. Friday several hours after the lighting of the “tree” on Monument Circle with the annual Circle of Lights celebration from 6 to 8 p.m.
