Thanksgiving Update

Good evening and Happy Thanksgiving. The weather continues to be optimal for holiday travelers across the entire region. This is a setup that rolls right on through the upcoming “traditional” weekend. Beyond that, the pattern begins to turn much more active.

Before we look ahead, we have to give it up for this morning’s lows…

Upper teens and low 20s are among the colder numbers we have had on a Thanksgiving in quite some time, and it made for the coldest morning so far this month.

Nice weather will continue for Friday and into Saturday, so holiday shoppers have no issues from the sky. Winds will be gusty as afternoon temps hit the 50s. Enjoy.

A cold front drops in late Saturday, but the core of the cold stays just to our northeast on Sunday…

That brings us a quick hitting shot of seasonal chill, with southwesterly winds booting that out quickly on Monday. This will mean a return to temps similar to what we will see Tomorrow and Saturday.

The models are all over the place for the middle and end of next week. I actually like how the GFS is currently handling a trough digging into the plains states. It cuts off a part of that, rolling it toward us for the second half of next week…

You can see the colder air coming in behind that as it departs to our northeast.

There is a heck of a fight going on with the global signals, right now. They are evenly split between a cold signal and a milder signal over the next week to 10 days. The colder signal is likely to win the battle, but it will take a bit to battle it out. You can see the eventual victory showing up on the GFS in early December…

I will talk more about this battle with the overnight post. Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving and take care.

    Any thoughts on when we will see snow for the first time? In my part of Richmond – no flakes yet.
