Weekend Weather Update

It's the weekend before Thanksgiving and Tony is blogging about travel, tailgating and hunting weather.

Pre-Thanksgiving Weekend Update

It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving, a time when the weather can be stressful on travelers. Whether it be taking a plane out of Yeager or Tri-State, or driving to the German Village of Columbus for some holiday shopping, there always seems to be a weather bogeyman out there in the days leading up to Turkey Day.

For Saturday, that’s not the case as I am expecting nearly perfect weather for travelers and tailgaters alike!

At Edwards Stadium, Herd fans will enjoy a second straight week of ideal tailgating weather, this time for Senior Day. Afternoon highs will be 10 to 15 degrees cooler than last week, but a high of 57 (the 3rd avenue marquee will read 60) in late November will be easy to take.

Keith tells me June Jones’ SMU Mustangs will offer a stern test for Coach Snyder’s Herd. So be prepared to yell up a storm!

Bring a warm jacket or at least a sweat shirt into the stadium as the air will cool quickly into the 40s for the fourth quarter.

Same goes for the OU Bobcats as Coach Solich is in quest of his first MAC title. Peden Stadium will be abuzz as the bowl-bound Cats and the Northern Illinois Huskies get it on. The Marching 100 (OU band) is worth the price of admission on its own.

By Sunday, an area of showers will be close by to the south. The precise placement of those showers will be Josh’s job on Saturday. Check with him for an update before planning your Sunday drive to church.

Monday we open the buck season in WV and start week number 2 of the antlered deer season in Kentucky. Dawn temperatures near 40 (30s in mountains) will warm into the 50s by afternoon. It appears some showers will dampen the woods in the southern Coalfields and mountains for opening day.

If we manage to avoid showers (50-50), the leaves in the woods will be crunchy again so walk softly and carry a big stick in the forests. Teddy Roosevelt would be proud of you!

Oh yeah you can leave the hot seats home as afternoon highs make the 50s.

Sunday travel delays will be common from southern airports like Charlotte and Atlanta as a southern EL NINO storm works its way along the Gulf coast toward the Eastern Seaboard. I will update the Sunday air travel forecast as needed.

For now I offer the following link for you to stay abreast of airport delays across the USA. I use it all the time to make my travel maps you see on the air at WSAZ.
