Tracking rain to start Thanksgiving travel

Good Wednesday to one and all. The long Thanksgiving travel period is kicking off with rain moving into the region. This will kick off a very active weather pattern that can deliver a lot of action to our region over the next week.

Wednesday’s rain has an outside shot at starting out as a touch of sleet across the northern parts of the area. With temps above freezing, nothing will come of that. The greatest chance of rain arrives Wednesday afternoon and evening. I will have all your holiday travel tracking tools in a bit.

Leftover showers will be possible into Thanksgiving, and a lot of clouds will hold tough through the rest of the holiday weekend.

A weak front arrives late Friday with gusty winds and just a small chance of showers. Seasonally chilly air blows in for Saturday:

The next system really winds up from late Sunday into Monday and will throw a lot of rain and wind our way ahead of it. As it cranks up to our north, temps crash into early Tuesday with a mix possible behind that:

You can already see the next system gathering steam across the Texas Panhandle. That one could be more of a winter weather-maker by next Wednesday and Thursday.

There is just so much going on with these systems diving in that the models are going to show some wild swings over the next few weeks. Look at the amped-up upper levels for next week:

All of this fits the blocking pattern setting up.
