Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Good Wednesday, everyone. The “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” post has become one of the great traditions here on Kentucky Weather Center. On this busiest travel day of the year, it’s the perfect time to pay tribute to one of my all time favorite movies. It’s a classic movie, and if you haven’t seen it, we can no longer be friends. 🙂

Here’s a little clip to get ya started…

Moving on to the actual weather part of the post…

We have colder than normal air out there today with temps in the upper 30s and low 40s for many, with colder wind chills.

Thanksgiving continues to look dry with 20s to start and 40s to end. A few clouds will be noted.

Black Friday is windy with upper 20s in the morning, and highs hitting the 50-55 degree range.

Another cold front arrives on Saturday with very gusty winds and another push of colder air behind it for Sunday…

That shot get’s shoved out of here quickly as we gear up for ANOTHER wild temperature ride by the middle of next week. That comes with a big storm system likely to impact our region.

Looking farther down the road, the new long range European Ensembles are in and they match the analog years and my thoughts on a front-loaded winter. Check out the colder than normal look through the first few days of January…

Snowfall from that same model for the same time period…

It’s interesting to note some of the new runs of the CFS are doing a turnaround and look very similar to the European for the exact same time…

That same model run for the 5 day period around Christmas is cold…

I will hook you up with updates later today, so check back. Safe travels and take care.

    Agreed, a great holiday movie, but my favorite is ” Miracle on 34th Street ” , makes you feel good inside and gets you ready for Christmas. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving everyone and remember we have a lot to be thankful for.

    Thanks Chris. I always look forward to this post, as it always means the holiday season is here! I love the holidays, and we have a few traditions that we observe as well. We usually watch Christmas Vacation at some point over the Thanksgiving weekend. In our world today, as we look around, we really do have so much to be thankful for. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we are so very blessed.
    Looking forward to seeing your thoughts as the day goes on. Have a great Hump Day and Thanksgiving Day Eve everyone!

    That movie holds special memories for me and will always be my favorite. My brother and I went to see that at the movies in Atlanta when it came out in 1987. My brother was like living with John Candy. He acted and looked like him. Terribly my brother and his daughter where killed in Birmingham Alabama in 1997 in an auto accident. Every year I still love watching that movie and think about how my brother and I, 2 grown men cried at the ending in the theatre but also laughed our heads off! Thanks for sharing I read your weather morning and evening. Your the best! Happy Thanksgiving!!
