Thanksgiving and travel forecast | Tech US News


The holiday season is here and so is the travel season. One of my favorite times of the year, but also one of the most stressful times of the year with regards to travel plans and the weather plays a big part in that every year. The good news is that here in the Tri-State and Ohio Valley, the weather really shouldn’t cause much of a headache until later in the week.

More than 54.6 million people are expected to travel 50 miles or more from home this week, according to AAA. If that includes you, just make sure you stay up to date with the forecast.

Tri-State travel forecast for Wednesday afternoon

Wednesday afternoon is the usual peak of travel congestion and the good news is that here in the Valley we won’t have to worry. Skies should be clear or partly cloudy and it will be our warmest day in almost two weeks.

The first half of Thanksgiving should be relatively calm, as we’ll see temperatures in the low 30s to start the day. We will remain mostly cloudy for much of the morning, but dry. If you have one of those turkey trots or turkey cups, you’ll need to bundle up, but don’t worry about the rain…yet.

Thanksgiving forecast

As we move through the day, there will be some occasional breaks in the clouds bringing some sunshine, but overall it will be mostly cloudy. Temperatures will be much warmer than we’ve seen in recent weeks, reaching the mid 50s. By evening, a cold front will move in from the west. This brings a chance for showers as we move into the evening hours and overnight. The biggest chance of rain will probably come during the early hours of Friday morning, which normally wouldn’t be a big deal, but Friday is a huge shopping day and morning.

There may be some chance of a shower or flurry on Saturday, but it looks minimal at the moment. The weekend will be mostly dry with highs in the upper 40s and lows in the 50s. Sunday, homecoming day, will also be a nice day with sunshine and dry weather.

Wherever you go and wherever you go, make sure you stay safe and have a great Thanksgiving.
