Turkey Forecast: Warmer Days Ahead, Nights Stay Cold

Today we're experiencing near record low high temperatures under sunny skies with wind chills in the 20's. It certainly doesn't feel like the type of day prior to Thanksgiving, but daytime highs will be warming up significantly the next few days. Unfortunately nighttime lows will struggle to do the same. Let's take a look at some details.

Weather Prediction Center's Wednesday Forecast
To start things off we'll take a look at the national picture. The low pressure system that was giving the Mid-South cold rain the past couple of days has evolved into quite a nasty nor'easter which will impact (guess what?) the northeast today and into tonight which could lead to significant flight delays that could have some ripple effect nationwide. Elsewhere in the U.S., weather looks great for travel.

Shifting back to the Mid-South you can see temperatures anomalies (departure from normal) in the image above. These values show quite a significant warming trend the next few days with high temperatures back into the 50's for Black Friday. However, that doesn't mean we're done with the cold! Morning temperatures will still be quite cold with lows struggling to get out of the 20's. If you're an early bird shopper, you'll definitely want to layer up!

Happy Thanksgiving from!
