WEEKEND SNOW, IMPROVEMENT BY THANKSGIVING....

Be fore I get to the snow system, it's hard to believe (at least for me) that Thanksgiving is only a week away. The early read on the weather this year is positive in the sense temperatures are expected to be mild and precipitation minimal over much of the nation. Here's the Thanksgiving surface maps generated by the latest GFS and EURO. Good consistency!

Here's the highs forecast by both models. Within 1 degree of each other here in Cedar Rapids. Of more importance, readings are right around 50. That would be the warmest in about 20 days!
