The Weather Prediction Center (WPC) said: “Relatively calm weather continues in the final days leading up to Thanksgiving.
It only takes a shower or gust of wind to reverse travel delays from minutes to hours the day before Thanksgiving. The good news is that we don’t expect the weather to have much of an impact on the country on Wednesday. Thursday is looking more like a warmer for some, and nasty winds and cold air will return to the Northeast from Friday through Saturday.
No problem, some delays will add up on roads and airports, just due to the extra volume.
With just a few days until Thanksgiving, Mother Nature is providing a consistent weather pattern for travelers across the mainland United States through Wednesday night, WPC said. Three.
In the Northeast, wind is the story the week before Thanksgiving. The good news is that these will taper off in the Northeast on Wednesday.
Some gusts from Dallas to Chicago could cause some problems, but the delay won’t be too great. Winds in some areas can gust up to 40 mph.
In Southern California, the Santa Ana winds started blowing through Wednesday. Winds can pick up 30 to 60 mph. This may add to some delays at airports but will become more of a hassle around Thanksgiving.
Intermountain West could see some sleet on Wednesday, making it the perfect destination for anyone looking to ski on Thanksgiving. Currently, there is a 20% chance of this snow falling in Denver.
In the Northwest, residents will get some respite on Wednesday from the onslaught of Pacific storms they’ve endured over the past few weeks.
But rain will be in the picture Wednesday night. This next storm system will be slightly warmer, increasing the risk of flooding in the river valley below.
Watch the weather here.
