Good Wednesday everyone. It’s one of the busiest travel days of the year as folks across the country are packing airports and interstates. The bad weather we’ve had over the past few days is clearing out at a perfect time. This will set us up for a wonderful next few days before our pattern turns wintry.
We will see a leftover shower or two early today with the best chance being across eastern Kentucky. Clearing skies will take over from west to east as the day wears on. Highs will range from near 50 in the east to low and mid 50s west.
Thanksgiving day continues to look fantastic with highs in the 50s under sunny skies. That nice weather rolls into Black Friday with temps in the upper 50s to near 60 with some more sun.
The weather will change quickly into the weekend as our pattern goes toward a wintry one. A powerful storm system will work our way from the west causing clouds to increase later Saturday with showers and some thunderstorms arriving by night.
Our temps will then tank from west to east on Sunday and you can see the cold air and rain moving in from the GFS Model:
The model then goes on to keep a very strong upper low right on top of the Ohio Valley into much of next week and is even trying to spit out some snow.
Nothing is set in stone, but we have the potential for some accumulating snows from late weekend into next week. We will follow it closely to see how this all plays out in the coming days.
Enjoy your Wednesday and safe travels. Take care.
