Thanksgiving travel forecast

Good Tuesday to one and all. The busiest travel period of the entire year is upon us, and it looks as if there will be some major travel problems across the country. A big winter storm will slam the East Coast and could affect parts of Eastern Kentucky. There’s another light snow maker lurking for Wednesday night.

Tuesday is the nicest day of the week, with partly sunny skies and highs in the low and mid-40s.

A storm system develops in the Gulf of Mexico Tuesday night and heads toward the outer banks of North Carolina on Wednesday. That will bring a swath of snow to far southeastern parts of the Bluegrass State. The NAM shows our Virginia border counties getting accumulations:

Check out how much snow falls to our east and northeast through Thanksgiving morning:

NAMThat will cause massive delays and cancellations for some of the major airports in the east. The trickle down effect will be felt at other airports across the country.

You will also notice a smaller band of snow dropping into Kentucky from the northwest on that snow map. That comes Wednesday night and Thanksgiving morning, and it might put down some light accumulations.

The most likely areas to receive some snow from that might be along and south of Interstate 64.

Leftover flurries and highs in the 30s should rule our Thanksgiving Day weather.

Friday will feature partly sunny skies with lows near 20, and highs approaching 40.

Have a great day and take care.
