Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for so many things, but for the purpose of this post, let’s stick with the weather.  I am thankful the weather today will be better than I had hoped, and I am thankful that next week will feel more like winter.

Two days ago I had been hedging back on the rain for today. It did rain, overnight. It was heavy and the ground is wet this morning. But two bands of showers are less impressive and fading away.  There is still a chance to get wet if you have a morning (virtual) Turkey Trot or going for a walk.

Morning Radar Snapshot

One band of showers in the mountains may drop some sprinkles in metro areas, but it will be hit or miss through 10 AM.   The Lower Eastern Shore has a more sturdy band of rain, so this region may have to wait a few extra hours to dry out.

Thanksgiving Morning Surface Weather

The cold front will arrive later, so when the rain breaks up, we will remain in the warm air. A perfect afternoon to be outside or keep the windows open for your inside holiday meal.

Afternoon Winds

It will be breezy, and gusty at times.  But this will help dry the ground (not your turkey).

Looking Ahead

The weekend will be dry and seasonably cool.  Then the BIG CHANGE!

The GFS Model is keeping the two storm solution: (This is still subject to change)

  • Monday-Tuesday: Rain may end with flurries. This Low Pressure crosses central Maryland, then drags in the colder air.
  • Thursday: Storm 2 passes south and off the coast. This has colder air, and may mix in snow for interior sections. Lake Effect snow hits the mountains hard on Friday as New England gets a snowstorm.  We could get snow showers into metro areas in this pattern.
