Windy conditions expected ahead of Thanksgiving holiday

Weather Blog

Tuesday will be relatively dry, but there won’t be as much sunshine as what we had for Monday. Clouds will start to increase during the afternoon and skies will become mostly cloudy for the evening. This is due to a low pressure system approaching Southwest Virginia. A bit of moisture will move through overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday morning. This will be a mainly spotty light rain event and it won’t last all day Wednesday. Drive carefully during your holiday and/or morning commute.

It’s not only the light rain that could cause messy conditions for the middle of the week. Strong winds will follow behind a cold front Wednesday morning. Gusts up to 50 mph are possible and could cause damage to trees. Make sure those holiday decorations are secure to the ground or brought inside for the middle of the week. It wouldn’t surprise me if a Wind Advisory is issued for several counties on Wednesday.

The Thanksgiving holiday will be dry, but cooler air will filter into the area. Temperatures will be slightly below average, in the upper 40s/low 50s for the afternoon. It will still be breezy at times, so hold on to those pies!

Little impacts are expected for those shopping on Black Friday, but the weather will become unsettled as we head into the weekend. Scattered showers are possible Saturday and into Sunday.
