“Calm” Thanksgiving weather in most of the country.

About two-thirds of the country should be genuinely grateful for the weather this holiday season as Thanksgiving travel returns to pre-pandemic levels.

“Relatively calm weather persists in the last days before Thanksgiving,” says the Weather Prediction Center (WPC).

An ordinary rain or gust of wind is enough to extend the travel delay from a couple of minutes to hours before Thanksgiving. The good news is that we do not expect strong weather to affect the country on Wednesday. Thursday looks colder to some, and those pesky winds and cold air return to the northeast on Friday Saturday.

In spite of everything, there will be delays on the carriageway at airports only due to excess volume.

Here are some places where weather can increase travel delays.

The last day of travel before the holiday

“Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away, and Mother Nature is providing a suitable weather pattern for travelers across the vast majority of the continental United States until Wednesday evening,” the WPC said Tuesday.

In the northeast, in the week leading up to Thanksgiving, the winds are history. The good news is that they should decline in the northeast on Wednesday.

Some of the gusts from Dallas to Chicago can cause problems, but delays need not be severe. Winds in some areas can be as high as 40 miles per hour.

Santa Ana winds blow in Southern California on Wednesday. Wind gusts of 30 to 60 miles per hour are likely. This could lead to some delays at airports, but will become more problematic on Thanksgiving.

The Mizhgorny West area has seen some snowfall, making it an ideal check-in for those heading to the ski slopes on Thanksgiving.

Right now, there is a 20% chance that this snow will make it to Denver.

The city has officially broken the record for the most recent “first measurable snow” and is still waiting. Measurable snow is 0.1 inches or more, and Denver has had snow counts since 1882. The last time it snowed in the city was 216 days ago.

In the northwest, residents will get a little respite on Wednesday from the onslaught of Pacific storms they’ve experienced over the past few weeks.

But it will rain on Wednesday night. This next storm system will be slightly warmer, increasing the flood threat in the river valley below.

“The weather system will bring rain to the area on Thursday and Friday,” according to the Seattle National Weather Service (NWS). “Rising snow levels combined with heavy rainfall will cause rivers to rise during this period, which could lead to flooding.”

Thanksgiving Wednesday night, a storm system builds up over the Plains.

“As its trailing cold front moves east through the middle of the country in the middle of the week, it sets the stage for showers from the Lower Great Lakes to the south-central United States on Wednesday night,” the WPC said in a statement. …

Thanksgiving Day

This advancing cold front will bring showers and thunderstorms in the early morning hours. These storms would then “spread through the Ohio and Tennessee valleys later that day on Thanksgiving, and localized heavy rain is possible in southeast Texas,” the WPC said.

The rest of the country looks set to stay dry this Thanksgiving.

“The regions most likely to remain dry on Thanksgiving are the Southwest, Intermountain West, Midwest and much of the East Coast,” the WPC said in a statement.

In some areas, such as the arid regions of the southwest, drought is not what they want to see.

Prolonged very dry and warm weather will return over the holiday weekend, reports the Los Angeles NWS. This, combined with a moderate wind forecast for Santa Ana, will create critical conditions for fires in the region.

Temperatures are returning to normal or above average for most of the country, with the exception of the central United States, where temperatures will drop below normal.

This cold will push east along with rain on Thursday night.

Weather conditions for the return trip

The cold front will advance across the East Coast by Friday morning and some rains are still continuing.

Maximum temperatures from Texas to Maine on Friday and Saturday will be 5-15 degrees below normal.

Behind the front end, not only will the bottom fall out due to the temperature, but the wind will rise again.

“Right now, looking at sustained winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts of 25 to 35 mph,” the NWS’s New York office reported.

This is the element travelers should be prepared for on Friday.

Wind is one of the main reasons for flight delays in late autumn and winter.

In addition, these winds blowing across the Great Lakes can cause the lake to snowy over the weekend.

Later in the weekend, a fast moving storm system can bring rapid snowfall to the Midwest and Great Lakes.

Snow can reach Washington, D.C., and some computer models hint that the system could end up off the coast of the Mid-Atlantic Ocean and intensify somewhat.

This could allow snow to form in eastern Pennsylvania, reaching Philadelphia and possibly further north to New York.

Future model runs may do a better job of this, and it deserves attention as we get closer to the end of the week.

A different system operates in the northwest, with more rainfall over the weekend.

Overall, the weather will have some impact on travel, but it won’t be a huge growl from the increased airport delays we’ve seen in recent years. Of course, there is something to be grateful for.
