Storm system could cause travel headaches on Thanksgiving
The Weather Prediction Center (WPC) said: “Intensifying depression will allow a period of strong winds/strong winds through much of Monday and Tuesday in the East and possibly into mid- and weekend across the Northeast as the low pressure remained offshore,” the Weather Prediction Center (WPC) reported.
The two most common cases of airport delays are low ceilings – low clouds – and wind during the winter months.
Along with the winds will come unseasonably cold temperatures, some snow and rain early in the week.
The Weather Forecast Center notes that another ‘major storm’ is possible over the weekend.
Here’s a day-by-day breakdown of what’s to come.
By far this will be the best day to travel all week as most of the precipitation will only occur in the West between the fountains. Snow and showers will hit parts of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah and western Colorado.
Some thunderstorms are also possible in southern Florida throughout the day.
Hurricane systems began to form across the Midwest.
The area is likely to have rain Sunday morning and then possibly even some sleet in the evening. But the wind can take the show.
The Chicago National Weather Service (NWS) said: “Current indications suggest that gusts could peak between 35 and 40 mph.
Wind combined with the cold can cause “feels like” temperatures for teens above or in the single digits.
“Slightly further east, a winter mix could develop during the north Mid-Atlantic Sunday morning,” the WPC said.
Some light rain could creep in on Sunday evening in the Northeast ahead of the chilly front.
The exact timing of the rain remains uncertain, but it is likely from Sunday night to mid-afternoon Monday any time when a cold front sweeps in. The front would stretch from Florida to Maine throughout the morning. By midday the front is offshore and dry conditions should be stable in most cases.
“Moderate to heavy rainfall will continue in parts of New England with the heaviest total precipitation (in excess of an inch) across northeastern Maine on Monday,” WPC said in its forecast. said in his forecast.
Lake-effect snow is also possible east of the Great Lakes.
As of Friday afternoon, low pressure is expected to form along the coast that will be far enough offshore to prevent major metro areas from seeing increased rainfall.
However, the storm system will strengthen winds across the region into Tuesday.
The coastal lowlands will be windy in the Northeast.
According to the New York NWS forecast, northwesterly winds of 15 to 25 mph with speeds of 25 to 35 mph, are strongest near the coast.
Wind will affect flights in the area. And it won’t just be the impact on planes; Anyone working on the ground outside will have to deal with extremely arid conditions.
“In fact, Tuesday’s high will most likely be in the 40s (mountain 20s) for most areas with a low in the 20s for most areas,” NWS said. in Washington, DC said. “This would make it look like it was late December (normal highs on December 25 are 47 degrees in DCA and 45 degrees in BWI).”
In the Pacific Northwest, it could be a little warmer. However, another storm system will move in early Tuesday morning, bringing more rain to the saturated area.
Not much will change as the Pacific Northwest continues with rain while gusts will continue in the Northeast.
The northeast storm is likely to move away from the area, leaving some gusty winds, rain and sleet in New England. Patterns have tended to exit faster, but it is still too early to determine the timing.
If you’re skiing this holiday weekend, you’re in luck as Intermountain West can get some sleet. Snow may even fall to lower elevations, including Denver, Salt Lake City and Cheyenne, Wyoming.
A hurricane entering the Midwest will begin to strengthen and pull moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. This would create an area of moderate to heavy rainfall extending from eastern Texas to parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley.
Moderate to heavy rain will continue to extend Thanksgiving Day in much of the South from Texas to Tennessee with temperatures reaching 2 inches in some locations.
Temperatures mostly recovered back to normal on Thursday for much of the eastern half of the US, but keep in mind that “normal” can still be cold.
For example, New York is likely to experience low temperatures in their 40s, so for anyone venturing out to see the big morning parade, make sure you’re prepared!
Friday at the weekend
The return trip can be difficult for some as the Midwest storm system continues to push east. Models are inconsistent about the intensity or duration of the storm.
A computer weather model shows rain mostly across the Southeast. While another wave brought rain, ice and snow into the Northeast. That will certainly be something that meteorologists and tourists alike will keep an eye on.
