Warming Up for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is supposed to be the biggest travel weekend of the year, even topping Christmas.  Fortunately, it appears there will be no major weather issues  for most of the eastern 2/3rds of the U.S.   Temperatures will warm up eliminating any freezing issues.  However, there is a western storm that will cause some travel woes for folks heading west of Denver.   This system is spreading rain down toward California and it will linger there for 2-3 days.  The higher elevations will receive snow with rain below 6,000 feet.    We will see a gradual warm up back into the 70s with a deepening layer of Gulf moisture.   Shower chances should remain low until Sunday & Monday when our next front arrives.  It will be of Pacific origin so the cooldown will be not as drastic as this last Arctic blast.    It’s time to get all your sweaters and winter weather gear cleaned & ready and the pattern is setting up for some major winter Southern storms forming the week after Thanksgiving.  Stay tuned!
