Thanksgiving Week Travel Outlook

As we are now entering the Holiday Season and the busiest travel day of the year is almost here, We wanted to share an outlook on potential weather impacts across the country this week.

Today a cold front that brought showers to the area overnight and into this morning will be exiting off the coast this afternoon. A series of storms brought tornado warnings to parts of Mass early this morning. The Great Lakes region will see snow from upper Michigan to Central NY.

Today we might see some airport delays in some of the busier hubs such as Boston, New York, Philadelphia and perhaps Washington. There could also be delays in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, due to rain showers, low clouds and poor visibility.

Strong winds will develop behind this Eastern cold front, which could trigger some wind-related delays across the Great Lakes, Northeast and Southeast.

Now out west the Pacific Northwest, including Seattle, may also have to contend with weather-related delays on Monday as the threat of rain and snow returns to the region.

Much of California, the Rockies and the Plains should have mainly quiet conditions for holiday travelers

Tuesday

A High pressure will bring dry weather to much of the central and eastern U.S. on Tuesday.

Tho strong wind gusts will impact parts of New England and the Mid-Atlantic including Boston, New York, Phila and perhaps Washington/Baltimore airports, but i wouldn’t be too concerned.

Travelers in the Plains, Midwest and South should not face any significant weather issues.

Wednesday

The day before Thanksgiving is typically the busiest travel day of the year. The great news is most travelers will NOT run into any significant weather issues on Wednesday.

However, if your flight isn’t until later in the day or Wednesday night, there is threat of delays due to a storm system in the center of the country.

Thanksgiving Day

The system that is set to develop on Wednesday night could cause delays on Thanksgiving Day from Texas into the Ohio Valley.

Friday

Another cold front will exit the East Coast on Friday, but there may be some lingering rain showers along the immediate Eastern Seaboard. It will get COLD!

Much colder air behind the front will likely lead to the development of wind-whipped snow showers and isolated snow squalls in some areas of the interior northeast.

Strong winds will develop for the Mid-Atlantic and northward, this may cause some delays.

At this point Sunday looks to be the best day to travel home after the holiday weekend.

How to see the Almost Total Lunar Eclipse late tonight

Later tonight there will be a lunar eclipse. While a passing front will bring rain and clouds you still might be able to catch a glimpse of this eclipse. At this point the best change of seeing it are those to the west of Philadelphia.

Overnight, the moon will pass into the shadow of Earth cast by the sun, illuminating the gray orb with a red hue. It will be the second and final eclipse of the year.

NASA predicts the eclipse will last over 3 hours and 28 minutes. That would make it the longest partial lunar eclipse in 580 years, according to the Holcomb Observatory at Butler University.

Here’s how to see the eclipse:

The lunar eclipse will be visible in North America, as well as parts of South America, Polynesia, eastern Australia and northeastern Asia, according to NASA.

For U.S. viewers the peak of the eclipse — when the moon is the most covered by Earth’s shadow — will be at 4:03 a.m. ET.

But the moon will begin to pass into the Earth’s shadow much earlier, around 1 a.m. ET. At 2:19 a.m. ET, the moon will move into the umbra, the inner part of Earth’s shadow and begin to look like a chunk is missing from it. It will turn red around 3:45 a.m. ET.
