StormTeam Outlook: Wednesday, November 26
Benjamin Dery, Meteorologist
Today just happens to be one of the busiest travel days of the year. With that in mind, although we're not expecting a ton of snow, take extra precautions. Many people are trying to get to Grandma's house today.
Light snow for 6-8 hours will only add up to an inch or so, maybe 2" for some localized areas. Keep in mind, cool northerly winds will allow for some lake enhancement for the South Shore where a Lake Effect Snow Advisory exists. Another half a foot is possible for parts of the Snowbelt.
The snow will be ending from west to east this afternoon, probably done for the Ports before the evening rush hour.
Clearing skies tonight leads to plummeting temperatures. We start out Thanksgiving below zero and only warm into the low to mid teens by the time the second football game starts.
A heads up to Black Friday deal shoppers: more light snow is in the forecast Thursday night through Friday morning where another couple inches are possible. Keep an eye on the forecast if you'll be out and about.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
