Tim's Weather World: Turkey day travel looking good

HIST turkeys_009.JPGThe early outlook calls for smooth sailing if you plan on travelling next Wednesday for Thanksgiving.   The only real travel trouble you might experience is in the southeast.  A storm lifting north from the Gulf will bring rain to much of the Mid-Atlantic region.  It does appear the Arctic air that comes crashing in here Friday will linger through the holiday though.   We could be anywhere from 10-15° below average next Thursday.  The graphic below displays the weather for noon on next Wednesday.  That is rain in the southeast and a little snow in Montana and over Lake Superior.GFS_06_opUS_P1KS_0156

My best guess for next Wednesday and Thanksgiving:

 

Wednesday:  Partly cloudy, 35°

Thanksgiving:  Partly to mostly cloudy, flurries possible, 32°

 

Could be worse…

 

The high on Thanksgiving day in 1930 only got up to 14°.   It got as cold as -1° on Thanksgiving morning 1950. On Thanksgiving day in 1980 3″ of snow fell.
