Tens of millions of individuals will soon take to trains, planes and automobiles as people make their annual Thanksgiving pilgrimage.
The 2023 Deloitte holiday survey found that 48% of Americans plan to travel over the vacations.
That’s up from the 31% that traveled between Thanksgiving and mid-January last 12 months.
Relatively quiet weather has dominated the U.S. over the past couple of weeks, but computer models are indicating a more lively scenario could take hold just as Thanksgiving travel begins.
“Too soon to place any numbers on it, but just remember that we would see slightly little bit of an lively pattern,” FOX Weather Meteorologist Jane Minar said.
Listed below are the broad strokes of the forecast leading as much as considered one of the busiest travel periods of the 12 months.
Details of the forecast will turn into clearer because the travel period approaches.
The change within the pattern begins toward the tip of the week when the jet stream begins to dip south.
The FOX Forecast Center is monitoring the potential of storms on each side of the country by the tip of the week.
This might mean snow across the northern tier of the country, with heavy rain possible across the southern tier between Nov. sixteenth and nineteenth.
This is able to likely create more probabilities for travel troubles ahead of Thanksgiving week.
Thanksgiving week outlook
The Climate Prediction Center is looking for above-average temperatures and precipitation across the eastern two-thirds of the country the week of Thanksgiving.
The West should expect below-average temperatures and average precipitation probabilities throughout the week.
The FOX Forecast Center is watching the potential for a stronger storm to develop within the western U.S. during Thanksgiving week.
This is able to mean heavy snow, gusty winds and rainy weather across the region.
