Temperatures this week will escape the 30s and break into the high 40s.
Accuweather reports that Wednesday, Nov. 23, will have a high of 46 with mostly sunny skies.
Wednesday night will be the coldest with a predicted low of 26. Expect overnight lows in the 30s for the rest of the week.
There will be similar conditions on Thursday, Thanksgiving with temperatures expected to reach the high 40s.

Accuweather predicts a sunny Saturday with a high of 49. Sunday will be warm, with a high of 50 but rain is expected.
The weather for the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade will be a 9.5 out of 10, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek. He added that there are "no weather concerns whatsoever" with light winds and temperatures in the 40s throughout most of the parade, although for those in the shade it will feel more like a chilly 30s. 
"For spectators watching the parade, make sure you have sunglasses on, especially if you are faced into the sun," Dombek added. 
The coldest parade was in 2018 with 17-degree temperature that barely climbed into the 20s; the warmest was in 1941 at 72 degrees, according to Accuweather.

North Adams Restaurant Has to Reapply for Alcohol License

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Desperados restaurant won't be able to serve alcohol until it gets a new license under its new ownership. 
Former owner Peter Oleskiewicz and new manager Chris Bonnivier had been scheduled to discuss the transition situation with the License Commission on Tuesday but Commissioner Rosemari Dickinson informed her colleagues that the restaurant's license had been turned in. 
"Mr. Oleskiewicz hand-walked his license to surrender to us yesterday," Dickinson said at Tuesday's meeting. "So the license is no longer. He voluntarily surrendered it."
Since the property no longer has a valid license, the alcohol cannot even be stored at 23 Eagle St., she said, because the pouring license is no longer in effect. The alcohol can be sold to other license holders, with permission of the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, or back to the distributor.
