Weather Blog: Since Fredericksburg resides "in the seam" between the Richmond VA and Washington DC media markets this blog is a look at the weather from a Fredericksburg-centric point of view.
Hit the road Jack…frost
The good weather news is that nothing has changed in the Thanksgiving forecast. After a frosty start this morning (Wednesday) a bright November sun will warm things up to near the 60 degree (F) mark today for those climbing into their chariots and motoring somewhere to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. The same forecast holds for Thanksgiving Day (Thursday) and Friday with temperatures climbing a couple of degrees each day.
The bad – if you want to call it that – weather news is that a strong cold front will blast through the area Friday night and dismiss all this warmth. Thus Saturday we will return to slightly below normal temperatures with highs in the upper 40′s and strong gusty winds, and Sunday will also be chilly and breezy. But the silver lining is that this frontal passage will be a dry one for most of the East Coast with no precipitation to mess up the roads for the trip home on Sunday.
So if you are traveling today to a family gathering wearing a light jacket you may want to pack some heavier clothes for the weekend. Drive safely and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
