Later this week, when the weather is not so calm, do what my colleagues at CNN did; #blame Judson. As a meteorologist, I am used to taking responsibility for things that we ultimately cannot control. So blame me and take more time to thank you for the opportunity to travel again.
With the increase in the number of travellers and changes in weather, there may be some delays on roads and air this week.
Thankfully, the storm system early this week does not seem to matter. However, regardless of the weather this week, due to the busy holiday travel, any normal or even weak storms may severely affect the activities of millions of people in the United States this week. This is why I bother to tell you.
“As the holiday week begins and runs, most of the continental United States will be safe for the first half of the week,” WPC said. The latter part looks even more ominous.
This is our expectation before Thanksgiving
Many people in the East—including yours—woke up to hear the ticking rain falling on their roofs. A cold front is passing through the area, and although rain and low clouds may cause some slight delays to road and air traffic, I don’t expect much increase on Monday morning.
The wind on Monday afternoon will really start to blow behind the front line of the storm. The maximum speed of wind gusts can reach 30 mph.
The two most common airport delays are low ceilings—low clouds—and winter winds.
The Federal Aviation Administration explained: “Airport ground winds, low ceilings, and visibility conditions combine to cause approximately 75% of delays.”
Although not very strong, the wind direction this afternoon may be problematic due to the runway configuration in the New York metropolitan area. So, expect the delay.
These winds will continue until Tuesday, and may even continue across the northeast until Wednesday.
Chicago is another major airport hub, and there may be delays in the wind on Monday and at other points of the week. Especially on Wednesday, when the wind speed reaches 40 miles per hour.
The cold Canadian air tilts to the south
The cold Canadian air will penetrate into the eastern third of the United States behind the cold front.
WPC said: “In the east, people with below-normal temperatures want to open stores on Wednesday morning, which really makes it feel like the holidays are coming.”
In most parts of the Great Lakes region, the temperature will hardly exceed 30 degrees.
WPC said: “Because the cold air rushes across the warm Great Lakes and activates the downwind lake-effect snow generators on Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, there will be a few inches of snowfall in the upper reaches of the Great Lakes today.”
As the temperature in some places drops to near freezing point, delays in air travel due to deicing are also possible, especially at night and early in the morning.
The temperature is about 10-20 degrees lower than normal, and it will further eastward to major cities in the northeast by Tuesday.
The Office of the National Weather Service in New York stated that “the temperature in Central Park may reach freezing for the first time this season,” Monday night to Tuesday.
WPC stated: “Even in the southeast, daily temperature abnormalities that are 10 to 15 degrees lower than normal are expected to occur on Wednesday.”
The biggest snow is in the northwest
Earlier this week, the snowiest and most unstable weather will be limited to the northwest, Pacific coast and inland areas, up to the North Rocky Mountains.
“By Wednesday morning, the largest total amount of snowfall may occur in Cascade, and more than 1 foot of snow is expected in the highest altitude areas. The Bitterroots and parts of the Lewis Mountains may also have 6 to 12 inches of snowfall. “WPC said.
Fortunately, low altitude areas will not see the heavy rainfall they have experienced in the past few weeks. Instead, this will be the lighter variety that Seattleites are more accustomed to seeing.
Rain in the area will take a short break on Wednesday, but the rain will vary from mild to moderate for most of the week.
Temperatures across the east coast may fall back to near normal levels, and the wind will also weaken. This is good news for those who arrive early on Manhattan’s historic parade route to watch the New Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade balloons.
As family traditions continue throughout the United States, storm system meteorologists are paying close attention to the continued construction of the central region of the United States.
Texas will get the most rain on Thanksgiving.
Or like my dad would say “liquid sunshine” for sure.
WPC said that during Thanksgiving, some areas of eastern Texas will see moderate rainfall, and it may rain sometimes.
The return journey looks more risky
Rain is expected to spread in the eastern United States until the weekend.
It may even lay the groundwork for larger disruptions at airports in the northeast on Friday and Saturday.
On Friday, another front related to the system will pass through the northeast. The main subway will rain again. Behind the front, the wind will increase and is expected to be stronger than earlier this week.
With this system, colder air and lake-effect snow appear again.
If it turns out that this storm system is indeed stronger than what we experienced earlier this week, please don’t blame others, just #BlameJudson; It might be easier to express gratitude for the trip in this way.

Jennifer and I both thank you for persevering in this hurricane season. We are also grateful that the end of the season was much quieter than anyone expected.
Now that the season is coming to an end, we are not going anywhere. Many of you are asking us to maintain this state throughout the winter to deal with any major winter storms this winter.
Happy Thanksgiving Day
