Will the weather affect Thanksgiving trips? – To world

SIOUX FALLS, SD (KELO) – Each year we carefully observe how the weather turns before the busy Thanksgiving travel season. Fortunately, things are looking pretty quiet this year.

We’ll start with a look at the jetstream pattern. We have a northwest current this week that will bring a trough into the plains by Wednesday. While there might still be some snow in parts of western South Dakota to North Dakota, the amounts below 1 inch look very light. A major storm is likely to develop in New England towards the end of the week, but we don’t see much here in KELOLAND.

In fact, the latest 10 day forecast is still very weak regarding snow accumulation in our region.

Temperatures will return to the normal range mentioned above when we close the holiday weekend. It’s interesting to note that the end of November should end very mildly with temperatures well above normal according to the latest 8-14 day outlook from the Climate Prediction Center.

We can expect every passing front to bring some wind, but otherwise travelers near KELOLAND shouldn’t have to deal with major storms.
