Let the holiday travel and festivities begin!
Mostly cloudy conditions will rule our skies today but at least we are staying dry here in the Tri-State which makes for great travel conditions. There are very little travel concerns in the Ohio Valley today but the bigger problem spot will be the any travel to the east coast. A nor'easter is already bringing rain and snow, which will create poor road conditions and flight delays.
Temperatures will drop into the upper 20s for Thanksgiving morning but we will remain precipitation free. A system that once looked like it was going to track directly through the Tri-State will pass just to our southwest which is great news for anyone traveling Thursday morning and early afternoon.
Temperatures climb into the upper 30s on Thursday with mostly cloudy skies. Winds will be in from the northwest at 10 to 15 mph. It's late Thursday afternoon and evening that we'll see a brief chance of snow but at this point, it wouldn't have an impact on our roads.
BLACK FRIDAY FORECAST
For you shoppers, don't forget to layer up because most of the big shopping times will be in the mid to upper 20s through Friday. Temperatures bottom out at 23 degrees Friday morning and climb back to 39 degrees that afternoon. Skies will be partly cloudy and winds will be coming in from the southwest at 5 to 12 mph.
Precipitation is not in the forecast so you don't need to add an umbrella to our list of things to bring for the big shopping day. As for travel conditions, it's really looking great here in the Tri State, Ohio Valley and out into the Midwest. There will likely still be some slick spots heading out the east coast after the nor'easter but no new snow will be falling in that region of the country.
Slight chance of snow late in the afternoon
Cloudy and colder
Partly cloudy, cool
