Thanksgiving week is providing some bonus autumn weather
The current weather pattern is both quiescent and benign, two descriptors that don’t normally go hand in hand with the usually changeable November weather in the ‘Burg. Thanksgiving Day is still looking delightful as a high pressure system (the blue “H” over West VA in the graphic below) sets up shop over the Mid-Atlantic with light winds, sunshine, and temperatures in the low 60′s.
There is still no precipitation in the forecast for this week even though a strong cold front will punch through here sometime Friday, ushering in colder temperatures and gusty winds for Saturday and Sunday. Travel weather for the East Coast should thus be good for those traveling over the holiday weekend…and that may mean more folks on the road than usual. You may want to plan accordingly.
