Final Update: 2:00p.m. Tuesday 24 November 2009
No changes to previous Thanksgiving forecast (see under map). Look forward to a sunny, breezy day with a cold start in the low to mid 30s and highs in the 50s to near 60.
Enjoy...and may you have safe travels this Holiday weekend!
We’re getting close enough to Thanksgiving for higher confidence in the forecast, especially with the pattern taking shape.
It is evolving similar to what the models have predicted since the middle of last week, which further boosts the odds of a successful forecast.
A dry, breezy and cool Thanksgiving is the most likely outcome expected from today’s analysis, with surface high pressure in control and dry air in place. Northerly flow on the western side of the upper low is the reason why (map).
This gives us virtually no chance of rain.
Travel problems are not expected anywhere within several hundred miles of Texoma, whether you’re headed north, south, east, or west.
Nights will be cold here at home but daytime should be mostly sunny, and cool to mild.
The pattern may shift to a wetter one as the holiday weekend winds down.
Another update with a new map will be posted Tuesday afternoon.
