Much of Wallowa County woke up to a warm and sunny Thanksgiving Day –– the warmest one in five years.
Most thermometers registered 65 degrees as the sun began to peak over the mountains, considerably warmer than last year’s high temperature for the day of 43 degrees.
Mother Nature was even less charitable in 2015 when the high for Thanksgiving Day topped out at a paltry 30 degrees.
The temperature in 2014 was only a couple degrees cooler than this year, topping out at 63. Thanksgiving 2013 saw a high temp of 50 degrees and in 2012, the mercury rose to 41 degrees for the holiday.
The past few days have been warm with intermittent sunshine and very breezy.
