Giving Thanks... and Traveling Home

NOAA Water Vapor Imagery Loop
11:00 AM EST 11/25/11 | On this relatively quiet Happy Friday, we are thankful the weather has taken a break in most parts of the country, but not for long. A strong cold front is beginning to sweep east as evidenced by High Wind Watches in the Central Plains. For those in West, Great Lakes and East Coast, the trip home by Sunday should be free of weather concerns thanks to two high pressure systems sandwiching the front in the countrys mid-section. Travelers in the Southern Plains will be the first to deal with the impact of this cold front as it moves east. The 5-day Precip Forecast from NOAA (right corner), suggest that in the Monday-Wednesday period, copious moisture transport from the Gulf may spawn potentially flooding rains across a large part of the Eastern U.S. Heavy rain and possible thunderstorms are expected by Monday in the Mid-South, which by Tuesday-Wednesday  extends into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
