A Slightly Warm Thanksgiving Expected

Live in the Tallahassee area, and not wanting to leave town? Is family close to home, or is some family not worth the painstaking drive or flight? Then locals may enjoy some of the milder sides of fall.

On Tuesday, a trough of low pressure in the upper levels was moving through the Midwest, making way for a low and cold front at the surface. Meanwhile, calm conditions ruled the Southeast with high pressure over the Atlantic.

This trough is expected to move northeasterly through Wednesday. This will still push the front into the southeast, but lose some of its luster. Enough moisture will be around Wednesday, but the lack of good lift will keep rain chances on the slight side.

The cold front will move through early Thursday morning, bringing in high pressure to influence the weather. This will leave us with a drier, nicer Thanksgiving. But the temperatures aren’t expected to be that cool. Instead, ridging is expected to set up aloft, keeping temperatures slightly above average for this time of year.

Tallahassee’s normal high and low for Nov. 28 is 69 and 44, respectively. The morning low Thanksgiving will be in the mid 50s with a low in the mid 70s. The sky will be mostly sunny, and the same weather will carry on to Black Friday. Morning lows will be close to 50 with a high near 70.

We could see more cloud cover ahead of another storm system that’s expected to take shape in the eastern United States. Saturday will be partly cloudy with a very slight chance of rain in the afternoon. The front will approach Sunday, bringing a chance of rain.

Stay safe, and have a great Thanksgiving weekend!

Oh, and Go Gators and Hail State! 🙂
