Thanksgiving Travel Forecast

We’ve had some memorable travel forecasts for Thanksgiving week in the past with large storm systems producing wind, rain, icy conditions, and snow across the US. This year looks relatively quiet for much of the country with a Thanksgiving Day system that will bring some rain to the eastern US and for us here in the Region–but nothing major. Let’s take a look at the maps:


A storm system in the western US will bring mountain snow and wind to the northern Rockies. Meanwhile we’re dry, but breezy in the Plains and Midwest out ahead of that system.


Pretty quiet all around as that storm system gets going in the central US. Rain will eventually develop from New Mexico to Illinois, but much of the day will be dry and breezy. Another system moves into the Pacific Northwest but shouldn’t be much of an issue outside of Seattle.


Our system develops quickly with rain from Texas to the Great Lakes. Colder air behind this system will bring some light snow and lake snows to Wisconsin and northern Michigan. That western storm brings soaking rain and wind into Washington while high pressure takes control of the Rockies and central Plains.


Here’s how we’re expecting things to pan out here in the Region. Sunshine will give way to increasing clouds and breezy conditions Tuesday and Wednesday. Expect showers around on Thanksgiving with temps holding or slowly falling through the 40s. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
