November 19-23, 2007 Weather Forecast

Thanksgiving Week Weather…

This holiday week starts off in rather quiet fashion with mild temperatures moving into the eastern U.S. Many spots will see 50s for highs Monday with some 60s in spots by Tuesday.

In terms of precip, Monday is dry. Tuesday and Wednesday will feature the chance for a few showers in the Virginias and Maryland while the North Carolina mountains remain dry.

A very sharp cold front will swing through the region Thanksgiving. An area or low pressure will ride along that front as it moves through the region, and the strength and location of that low will have significant implications on our weather.

As it stands now, I expect showers and thunderstorms to rumble through Thanksgiving Day.
Temperatures will them plummet behind that cold front, and some snow showers will be possible Thursday night and Friday. The rest of the holiday weekend looks chilly.

So, while the weather for the first few days of the week is not great for the ski industry, the good news is that we will turn much chillier Friday into the rest of the holiday weekend, and that will help in the effort to get more ski resorts open.
