It's beginning to feel a lot like the holidays. The National Weather Service has issued a freeze watch for Thanksgiving in the Valley, including Mesa, Chandler, Queen Creek and Gilbert.

A cold Canadian air mass will bring the coolest Thanksgiving temperatures in decades. A forecast high of 59 on Thanksgiving would be the coldest since 1933. Nighttime low temperatures could be in the mid 20s in parts of the East Valley. A freeze watch means residents should dress accordingly and take precautions with sensitive plants and vegetation through Friday morning.

Friday's forecast shows a few degrees warmer in the Valley - with a high of 62 and nighttime lows in the lower 30s and 40s.

Arizona's north country may see snow Wednesday night, with snow accumulation of 1 inch possible in Flagstaff. Thanksgiving day will bring clear skies, with a high near 28 in Flagstaff and a low near zero.
