Great Thanksgiving Day Forecast, Then A Storm?

Good morning bloggers,

Well, who watched that entire game last night:  A 54-51 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.  This is a growing and learning experience for our young superstar, Patrick Mahomes, who had a rough night trying to do a bit too much.  It stings this morning, the day after, but think about this; their two losses are 43-40 and 54-51, and both on the road.  It may end well for this developing team.


Onto the weather. While the Chiefs get this weekend off, I will be preparing to emcee and host the Plaza Lighting Ceremony on Thanksgiving night, a great tradition here in KC. Put on a coat and head out tot the Plaza where 50,000 to 100,000 people will join and celebrate together.  There will be a pretty strong breeze from the south to southwest with a high near 60 degree on Thanksgiving Day.  By evening (the lights go on around 6:54 PM), the winds will still be out of the south at around 20 mph.  The fireworks smoke will blow to the north and temperatures will be in the 40s to near 50 degrees.  The weather at this time of the year could not be to much better, and it is usually much worse.

Two storm systems later this week:

There are two storms to track later this week. The first one will arrive around Black Friday with a good chance of rain, and then there is a second storm that will be more impacting and due in on Sunday. Here is one of the models that just came out overnight:


I do not want to over analyze this storm, as solutions are all over the place. That is a blizzard, shown above, near Omaha.  Other models have it closer to KC.   By Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day we will narrow in a solution, and then we will make some conclusions.

Have a great day!  Thank you for sharing in this weather (sports today) experience featuring Weather2020 and the LRC. Go over to the Weather2020 blog to join in the conversation.
