Dave’s Discussion – Weather 11/24/15

We are getting so close to Thanksgiving Thursday you can almost smell the Turkey 🙂
We had a very chilly start to the week with temperatures well below normal, but that is about to change, and just in time for the holiday.  In fact, look at our temps from last weekend through the end of this week.   We are going to see a nice turn in the correct direction.

November Day High Low Rain Diff From Norm.
Saturday 21 53 35 0.15 2
Sunday 22 37 24 T -11
Monday 23 41 21 0 -10
Tuesday 24 46 26 0 -5
Wednesday 25 54 31 0 2
Thursday 26 58 39 0 9
Friday 27 56 47 Yes 11

So as far as travel goes around the state for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday it is looking pretty good.   We will see a front arriving on Friday.

What is the forecast for Wednesday for travelling on the roads?

11-24 travel 111-24 travel 211-24 travel 3

If I travel on Thanksgiving day, what can I expect weather-wise on the roads?

 

11-24 travel 411-24 travel 511-24 travel 6

If I plan to get back home on Friday, what should I expect from Mother Nature?

11-24 travel 711-24 travel 811-24 travel 9

If you do plan on travelling on Saturday, expect a pretty cloudy day with some light showers very early, and mainly east.   If you are going up to the game at that place up north, expect some light showers overnight, into Saturday morning, with gusty winds at times to 20 mph.   Sunday looks like rain showers will return to the area, and temps will remain below normal.

If I had to rate the best travel days between now and the end of the weekend here is my ranking below.

Rank
1 Tuesday
2 Wednesday
3 Thursday
4 Saturday
5 Friday
6 Sunday

I think really, Tuesday (today) – Thursday should almost be equally as good of travel days, with less sunshine Thursday.   Saturday will be gloomy and breezy at times.  Friday and Sunday both have chances of rain, and should be slower drives.

Be careful wherever you end up this holiday.
