November 22 Another Cold Morning Then Mild Travel Days: Thanksgiving Weekend Storm Shift

Maryland Weather
climate data

November 22 2022

Tuesday Morning Update 

We have another cold morning, but we are turning the corner. The good news here is the quiet weather for a few days. The same air mass that brought us the cold air is modifying as it moves to the coast. Plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures will take us into Thanksgiving Day. That’s great news for most traveling across much of the US.

What about that storm? Or Storms? It looks like the energy needed to come together will arrive in a different order.  The net result will bring us the main event a little later in the weekend, which may end up with a bigger impact. However, the wintry part of it is less likely. More on that Sunday event below.

Note: My Winter Outlook is almost ready. I am finishing it up today and aiming to publish tonight or Wednesday morning.

Morning Surface Weather

High Pressure dominates most of the Eastern US.  The wind will be light, then shift from the west. That is the mild trend for the next few days, which actually brings us back to near normal.


Morning Temps at 6 AM

Many areas are again below freezing, but it is not as cold as yesterday. We are turning the corner and you will notice it this afternoon.


Temperatures Afternoon

Reaching the 50s with sunshine and light wind will actually feel comfortable. It’s all relative!

Wednesday Morning

Near or below freezing.

Wednesday Afternoon 

Thanksgiving Weekend Storm Outlook

Let’s start with Thanksgiving Day: It will be dry with clouds increasing during the afternoon. The morning weather should be good for all the Turkey Trots.   

Friday: This now looks like a split system with rain showers, more likely in the afternoon and evening. 

Saturday: Mostly dry, then rain may arrive later in the day and at night. That depends on which model wins here. The European and Canadian Models actually delay the arrival of the rain until Sunday morning. That is when the GFS has the rain departing. 

Sunday: This may end up our stormy day. If you are traveling this day, it may be better later.


The three main models I often show you are not in agreement.  The GFS has led the charge, first showing the wintry mix on Friday, then breaking that up.  It is now the line horse showing earlier rain Saturday evening, ending Sunday. The other models are pushing that main event being an all Sunday affair. That is our focus for now.


GFS Model Animation

Thanksgiving Morning To Sunday Afternoon 



Sunday Morning Snapshots

GFS – This is the same model as above. Here we see rain in the morning, on the way out. Suggestion here is for rain to end by lunchtime. 


ECMWF – This model suggests the rain just arriving in the morning, making for more of a wet and stormy day.


Canadian – This model actually allows the colder air to produce some sleet or freezing rain in central Pennsylvania as the storm arrives early in the day. It also suggests the impact will be all Sunday. If so, that could affect travel plans.
