A Holiday Headache
Thanksgiving is fast approaching and we are yet again watching another storm system to take aim at the Twin Tiers. A storm system will get going out in the Rockies with snowfall for them Monday afternoon and begin its journey towards our region for Wednesday evening . A warm front ahead of the storm will allow our temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday to peak in the 50s before rain arrives Wednesday evening. We will be expecting slower traffic for the Wednesday evening commute due to some heavier downpours that are expected.
The rain is not the only hazard we will be watching with this system. We are expecting very gusty conditions to begin Wednesday afternoon and last through the Thanksgiving holiday. We will be watching for wind gusts upwards of 50 MPH. This, along with the rain expected, will create the conditions needed for isolated power outages across the Twin Tiers.
Finally, during the overnight period Wednesday, a cold front will swing through the Twin Tiers and usher in another round of cold air. We will see our temperatures crash into the lower 30s during the afternoon hours on Thanksgiving. This along with the expected wind gusts will make it feel like the lower 20s and upper teens across the region for the Thanksgiving day holiday.
Make sure you follow along with us all week for updates on this potent system set to take aim at the Twin Tiers the week.
