Weather: Travel & Thanksgiving Outlook (11/22/2016)

High pressure will steadily take over Tuesday night, putting an end to nearly all snow showers. Overnight lows into Wednesday morning will be in the middle 20s. Plus, it'll stay a little breezy a times; that puts wind chills easily into the teens. Wednesday morning will be cold! Warm the cars up before the big travel day! Locally, we'll be quiet if you're driving anywhere in New York, Vermont or New Hampshire. The rest can be said about all of New England and the east coast. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy and highs will get into the mid 30s. A cold front will be laying over the middle of the country providing snow to the northern Great Lakes and thunderstorms to areas of the Mid-South from Tennessee to Alabama.

Thanksgiving day will turn a bit messy, but not horrible up here. An area of low pressure will lift into the northeast Thursday morning. It'll lead to a period of snow showers in the morning before changing to a mix of rain and snow by the afternoon. Snow amounts will be light with a dusting or so in valleys, closer to an inch or three in the mountains. Driving & flying on Thanksgiving may be slowed down a bit; especially if you're driving into the mountains. Highs will get into the middle & upper 30s. Any Thanksgiving Day backyard football games will be cold, raw and awesome.

Friday and Saturday stay slightly unsettled with spotty rain & snow showers continuing. It'll stay cloudy both days with highs near 40° and lows in the low 30s. Sunday & Monday, there will be a relative lull in the action before another system brings more rain & snow by Tuesday. This unsettled & cold pattern is just what the doctor ordered for opening day/weekend for a lot of our mountains.

I wish you and for family a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
