Weather shouldn’t be an issue for holiday travel

November 19th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

One of the busiest travel holidays of the year is just ahead and forecasters say Iowans should have few weather issues to contend with this Thanksgiving — and warmer-than-usual temperatures. Meteorologist Miles Schumacher, at the National Weather Service, says temps are 10 to 20 degrees higher than normal. Schumacher says, “It’s been warm for the past several days and it looks like it’ll be temperatures in the 50s and low 60s the next couple of days and we could see some 70s in the state on Wednesday which would be pretty close to record levels.”

A cool front may arrive in the state as soon as Thanksgiving Day. “We’ll see a couple of days of sharply colder air with high temperatures in the upper 30s and 40s across the state, but that’s actually pretty close to normal,” he says, with no snow in the forecast, at least through the weekend.

There’s an outside possibility for some wet snow next week, but the long-range forecast is still developing.
