Thursday Morning Update 

Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful you are here and truly hope you make the most of this day. It will be seasonal and quiet.  That does mean a chilly morning, but with the sun we will have a mild afternoon. If you are heading out early for a Turkey Trot, I have a run down of early temperatures. I suggest hats and gloves. 

Looking to the holiday weekend, we have two events, and I am calling myself out for the post I shared last week. I showed the GFS model with a wintry mix inland and said there would be some changes. Well, that change was to all rain, and two systems. I have a look below plus a peak into early December.

Morning Temperatures 

A rare signal this morning, it is colder in Ocean City at 32ºF than the mountains where McHenry reported 37ºF.

There is also a pocket of mild air showing up across northern Frederick and Carroll counties. However, most of the region is waking up with temps near freezing. The warmer air is moving in from the west.


More Local Turkey Trot Areas

Note that these are at 7 AM. I’ve highlighted the Turkey Trots I’ve learned about. There may be others, or you might be running your own.

Sunrise is at 6:59 AM. Most Turkey Trots are at 8:30 AM or 9 AM, so a little warming will begin by then. But it might be best to simply plan for a hat, gloves, and maybe those disposable hand warmers. Also, sunglasses, because that glowing orb will be rising in the sky.


Morning Surface Weather

High Pressure dominates most of the Eastern US again.  There is a small Low Pressure system with rain from Dallas to Memphis and St. Louis. That is the first wave of rain we expect tomorrow. 

Today however, will be sunny with increasing high clouds. 


Temperatures Afternoon

High clouds may begin to dim the sunshine, but we remain mild and dry. Great for anything from a family flag football game to simply taking taking a walk.  Enjoy!

Friday Through Sunday: 2 Holiday Weekend Weather Events

ECMWF Model 4 AM Fri to 10 PM Sun

There will be two pushes of rain. The first on Friday will only last a few hours. The second system on Sunday should be larger with more rain during the day… especially in the afternoon. This may slow down the ride home.

Radar Simulation Friday

NAM 3 Km 5 AM to 3 PM

The period of rain will only last a couple of hours… Earlier in metro areas, then passing through southern Maryland in the afternoon.

Friday Morning Temperatures 


Friday Afternoon Temperatures 


Peak Into December: Jet Stream 

The suggestion is to start with a push of mild air with a rain event, followed by the first shift of the jet stream… This is a signal, not the main event of colder air we expect in December. 

November 24 Thanksgiving Jet Stream Outlook December


NOAA Temperature Outlook: 6 to 10 Days

Note this is a balance of the mild push followed by the shift to a colder pattern. This is compared to climatological records. 

Here we see another cold air dominance for most of the US. The warmth will retreat to the Southeast US and Florida. This is the first signal of colder air expanding. Note, this averages a start of warmer air with the arrival of colder air in the period.
