I don't think we could ask for better weather if you're driving somewhere tomorrow to start the busiest travel day of the year. The Weather Channel summed it up perfectly with this graphic:
No matter which direction you're traveling you should run in to sunny and mild conditions. Ok, mild compared to the 18° morning we just had this week. Still better than a couple years ago when I drove ahead of a snow storm.
The travel back won't be...

We're about 24 hours away from what many local meteorologists are saying will be our first flakes of the season. But what's the chance we actually see our first snow?

This is the HRRR for 9am tomorrow morning, showing 30mph sustained winds all along the southern part of the low:
A gust as high as 50mph isn't out of the question tomorrow. With winds this high, sporadic p...

A huge mid-fall storm is setting up in the middle of the country for tomorrow. I eluded to this in my last post, stating there was a chance we could get some severe weather out of this. Well, one thing I can say for sure is the Plains should watch out for it:
The setup looks like a classic Great Lakes storm that produces a second severe season from the Plains to the Great Lakes Region. However, tomorrow's storm system has one thing missing from it: ...
