Goings on in eureka springs during Thanksgiving

We are planning to be married Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Can anyone tell me what the weather will be like this time of year. Does it usually snow? Are all of the cute little shops opened as well? Thanks, Pam From South La.

Regarding the wewather: NW Arkansas showed temperatures averaging in the 20's on Dec 01 2007 and the low 30's on Dec 01 2008, with light snow indicated on both dates. These are from weather stations in nearby towns. Dec 01 2006 was apparently worse. Here is a post from a NW Arkansas resident Nov 30, 2006:

It's 7:30 pm. It's still nothing but sleet/freezing rain where I am, just off Hwy 23 So.

regarding the shops: I have spent Thanksgiving in Eureka. We definitely saw some closures but there were enough shops and restaurants open to keep us busy.

Usually no snow around Thanksgiving. But as we say in NWArkansas...wait a minute and the weather will change.

Most of the wintry weather(the kind that closes schools) begins late in December and last until late Feb. There can be the surprise snow in March.

Check out the Farmer's Almanac and see what it predicts for this year. Perhaps I'm crazy but I always check its predictions for my big events.

Congrats on your upcoming marriage!!
