Thanksgiving Day PMNovember 24th, 2011 at 3:58 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Lions game underway…in a few minutes, the rest of the family will arrive. Clouds are thick over the area right now (stratus). Clouds are a little harder to see on the IR Satellite loop. The cloud line is moving through Wisconsin and eroding a bit in N. Lower. Here’s current conditions. Today, the dilemma is the fog and stratus that has formed. The sun is low in the sky now and it’s harder to mix the air and evaporate the stratus. So, we could be variably cloudy at times or even most of the time. No rain today or tomorrow. The models still have light rain developing Saturday midday to afternoon from west to east across the area. Colder air may change the light rain or a mix or even a period of wet snow Sunday PM/Night before it ends. It’ll be cooler next week. We had the Gobble Wobble in East G.R. and the Turkey Trot out at Cornerstone Univ. Next we need a “Drumstick Dash” or a “Wishbone Walk”. Four of our family did the “Turkey Trot” this AM. How’d you like a wind chill temperature of -71! Fairbanks AK climbed above zero for the first time in 10 days! Up to 13″ of snow has fallen in Maine. Here’s more Maine snow totals. Up to 14″ of snow in Vermont and 11.5″ in NE NY. They’ve had wind gusts to 75 mph in the Pacific NW, along with nearly 6″ of rain. We’ve got LOTS to be grateful for. (I’m sure grateful for those of you who come to read my blog). We’ve got the family at our house today…and we have planned to set the food out and let people grab what they like when they like. I’m sure many will be watching the Lions/Packers game. Hope your holiday is spectacular!
