Thanksgiving Weather

What is the typical Thanksgiving forecast for our area?

Great weather for the Thanksgiving Holidays. Normal temperatures and dry weather will be the norm for us and most of the United States. I wish there was more to talk about because when the weather is nice, it's boring. But what we're experiencing is pretty much the status quo for this time of year. We start out the week with average highs of 60 and lows of 39 and by the end of the week we're down to 59/38. This is normally one of our dry periods but we are still running a deficit for the year. The last graph on this page shows you how much rain is needed to break the drought.

My meteorologist buddy, Robert Gamble, just posted this today on Facebook:

"The ECMWF model (ensembles too) have switched the big Alaskan block to look more like GFS , squarely over Alaska and also developing strong -NAO pattern. If these models are right, then pretty soon a major Arctic Outbreak is coming to the lower 48 states. And now this is within 10 days, actually beginning in a week for the northern states, so the odds are looking more likely this will be a big deal."

Something to watch for next week! In the meantime, enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday!

This is one of my new favorite winter weather stations. This is from Baffin Island, way up near Greenland and the Arctic Circle. Complete with webcam http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=INUNAVUT2 — at 71.327 -79.375. Also, a little further north, Eureka! No, the town, if that's what you want to call it. And you think it gets cold here. http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=79.98000336%2C-85.93000031 And despite what the link says, it isn't Eureka CA. — in Eureka, Nunavut. http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?brand=wxmap&query=33.978500,-83.881104&zoom=5

Tonight will be our coldest night of the season, with the NWS calling for lows in the upper 20's. Today we will struggle to get out of the 40's with gusty northerly to northwesterly winds bringing much drier and cooler air to our area. Here's an excerpt from the Atlanta NWS office: COLD AIR WILL PUSH INTO THE CWA TODAY WITH MAX TEMPS THIS AFTERNOON FORECAST TO BE 10 TO 20 DEGREES COOLER THAN FRIDAY AND THIS WILL ALLOW FOR HIGHS AROUND 5 TO 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT ARE FORECAST TO BE THE COLDEST OF THE SEASON SO FAR WITH MOST OF THE CWA EXPECTED TO BE BELOW FREEZING. LOWS TONIGHT ARE EXPECTED TO BE AROUND 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. THE FROST/FREEZE PROGRAM ENDED FOR THE CWA ON NOVEMBER 20...SO NO FREEZE WARNING WILL BE ISSUED FOR THE AREA. MAX TEMPS WILL WARM UP A FEW DEGREES MORE FOR SUNDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE CENTERS OVER THE CWA AND THE FLOW ALOFT BECOMES ZONAL.

While everyone has been eating turkey and watching football (ok.. I've been doing that too!) I've been busy adding new web pages and updating old ones. Here are a few of the new ones: 1. http://www.daculaweather.com/4_flightdata.php - Really cool page of live air traffic. You can even see a cockpit "view" which is fun during landings! 2. http://www.daculaweather.com/4_us_conditions.php - A simple summary of regional conditions around the country. 3. http://www.daculaweather.com/4_us_obs.php - Observations from around the US 4. http://www.daculaweather.com/4_winter_extreme_stations.php - This one is just for fun. It's a list of extreme winter weather stations in North America. All of these stations have a webcam and frequent weather updates. 5. http://www.daculaweather.com/4_mesonet.php - great page to view current conditions from various stations, both locally and nationally. page loads slowly but it does automatically refresh the data. 6. http://www.daculaweather.com/4_tides.php - Tides and Currents. We've got it all! :-) I also worked on several of my old model loops. Here's a page that has links to all of the other NWS GFS loops: http://www.daculaweather.com/4_gfs_06_2m_nws_loop.php
