Thanksgiving Day falls on a different day each year, which makes getting the records for the holiday a little tougher, it can be done. The average high for the holiday in Idaho Falls is 37 degrees F, and the low is 19; Thanksgiving Day 2017 should be warmer for both. The record warmth for the Day is 61, set in 1998.
