Tomorrow is the busiest travel day of the year for Ohioans, with many of us driving out of state for the Thanksgiving holiday. A massive coastal low may cause some issues for some, here's a look at the major highways out of state and their travel conditions for tomorrow:

The area has been under a Wind Advisory since 7am and for good reason. I just recently had a gust of 39mph from my roof mounted weather station. It's also trash day, so trash cans are blowing all over the neighborhood. We could very well see sustained winds of 40mph later today with gusts in to the 50's.

I've got to say, this is probably one of the more significant snowfalls I have seen in November around here since I've lived here. Looking back since I've been keeping records, I've never seen a first "storm" dump this much, and certainly not this early in the season. If this is the way the season will go, we could be in for an interesting next few months.
Here's a quick look at the totals based off of reports to the NWS:
I ended up with ...
