Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. The weather picture mother nature is painting for us today is an amazing one. The mild weather of the past few days has one more day left before the bottom falls out in time for holiday shoppers.
Highs today will warm into the 60-65 degree range for many. 71 is the all time warmest Thanksgiving in Lexington and that was back in the late 1800’s.
You can track all of today’s weather:
A strong cold front blows in early Friday and this will have an impact on holiday shoppers. A band of showers will roll across the state early in the morning as our winds gust up. Much colder air will then filter in and the NAM shows this well:
Highs in the 30s will be common for Saturday and a snowflake or two may fly by… especially in the north and east.
A bigger storm is on the menu for early next week and this one has a chance to bring us a lot of rain that ends as snow. That’s the suggestion from the GFS Ensembles Mean:
We still have plenty of time to watch that situation. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and take care.
