Thanksgiving Weather Preview
9:15 AM EST, November 26, 2013
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Matt Mehallow
The major storm that will deliver a bout of wintry precipitation and drenching rain to Eastern half of the U.S. on Tuesday and Wednesday will depart and allow for a quiet Thanksgiving Day for many. The only noteworthy weather will be seen in the Great Lakes where nuisance lake-effect snow showers will continue, and in California, where light rain will dampen some backyard flag football and 5k Turkey Trots.
In the wake of the strong low pressure system, fresh cold air and blustery winds will be the story across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Some lingering snow showers will be possible across Northern England during the morning. Under partly sunny skies, highs in the 20s and 30s will prevail from Boston to Richmond, Va.
Dry and chilly weather will dominate the weather pattern from the Southern Plains into the Southeast. A few showers will be possible in Northern Florida, but otherwise, it will be unseasonably chilly with temperatures in the 40s and 50s, from Dallas to Jacksonville, Fla.
Residents in California won`t be as lucky due to a low pressure system that will bring showers as highs reach the 50s and 60s. The Central Plains and Mountain West will stay in the 30s and 40s while a bit warmer 50s will prevail in the Pacific Northwest. Cold highs ranging from the mid-20s to the 30s will keep residents of the Northern Plains and Midwest bundled up. Dry, warm 60s and 70s will greet the Southwest.
