Thanksgiving weather headlines

Good Thursday and Happy Thanksgiving! Just as many folks hit the roads over this busy holiday travel period, rain moved into the region. Much of that will wind down Thursday, but a lot of clouds will be hanging tough.

Highs Thursday will range from the upper 40s in the north to the mid-50s in the south. Overcast skies might try to brighten later in the day, but the clouds will be tough to clear out. Isolated showers are also possible:

A weak front drops in here Friday evening with gusty winds, but no precipitation. This sets the stage for some more clouds and a seasonal chill for Saturday. There is some indication northeastern Kentucky might struggle to get much past 40 degrees.

big storm system is going to crank across the Plains states and should send heavy rain and wind our way by Monday and Tuesday.

That system is impressive and one we will need to keep a close eye on. High winds and local high-water problems are possible across the region.

As that storm wraps up, another will come under it by Wednesday. That’s the last day of November, and it could take on more of a winter look. Here’s a snapshot of the current models:

I don’t think any models are handing that situation very well because there is soooo much energy coming through.

Happy Thanksgiving and take care.
