This big travel day before Thanksgiving may have some travel concern if you are heading north to Pennsylvania or New York. The near record cold air we’ve discussed on the way will have a strong arctic front to bring it in. This really looks like a mid winter pattern and it will look like it in some areas. Track the line of snow squalls this afternoon below.
Thanksgiving Day will be painful cold, especially if you are doing a Turkey Trot in the morning. Temperatures and wind chills below. The good thing is that it will keep many indoors and hopefully force families together to reconnect.
Next up will be the frigid Thanksgiving and then a weekend storm that may start with freezing rain. That might explain why some counties have those pretreated lines down on the pavement. This showed up on Frederick roads yesterday. Tina Cline was surprised along with many of her friends. I can only imagine it was one before the holiday expecting it to stay on the roads for the weekend, when it might be more expensive to bring in the same personal todo the job???
