Good Sunday, everyone. A blast of cold air has invaded the bluegrass state on a gusty northwesterly wind flow. This is the coldest air of the season, so far. Is this a sign of things to come for our big Thanksgiving week ahead? Let’s get into it.
Highs on this Sunday will only hit the mid and upper 30s for many areas. Gusty winds will make it feel colder than that. Skies will be partly sunny, but the day can start with a few snowflakes. That’s especially true across the east and southeast:
The holiday week gets started out on a very nice weather note. Monday and Tuesday will feature dry conditions with morning lows in the 20s with afternoon highs in the upper 40s to near 50.
The big travel period starts Wednesday with some clouds increasing. Those clouds are ahead of a big storm developing across the plains states. There could be a stray shower or two blow in late in the day for the western part of the state.
The storm system in the plains is going to slowly push our way late Thanksgiving Day into the long holiday weekend. This is a fairly expansive system that can cause some travel issues for a large part of the country:
That’s likely to mean a period of heavy rain on the front end, with the potential for some winter weather as much colder air swings in.
That’s something to keep a close eye on going forward. Make it a great day and take care.
