BALTIMORE, Md. (WBFF) - Big cooling trend on the way through Thanksgiving!
Wednesday, we'll see a reinforcing shot of chilly air push in accompanied by some extra clouds and highs 45 to 50... so we'll see no travel problems for one of the busiest days of the year on the roads. Wednesday night, skies will clear with arctic air moving in and lows well down into the 20s.
Thursday, too, for Thanksgiving, expect no travel issues with lots of sun returning, but also significantly colder weather with highs barely above freezing, and wind chills well down into the 20s, by the time you're sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner... it'll likely be one of the coldest Thanksgivings in recorded history here in Baltimore.
Friday morning, for door-buster Black Friday sales, it'll be very cold with lows in only the teens to near 20, but at least under mainly clear skies. Friday afternoon will still be very chilly, though, with sun and highs near 35.
For the trip back home from the holiday, expect much milder weather again, but you'll also have to plan around rain. We'll see a batch of rain move through Saturday midday and afternoon with highs near 50... if the rain moves in early enough, we may also have to watch for a couple of icy spots Saturday morning. Sunday, rain may hold-over into the pre-dawn hours, but most of the day should shape-up better for travels as highs hit about 55 to 60.
If you're waiting until next Monday to make the trip back, rain will likely return with highs still in the mid 50s, before cooler and drier highs in the upper 40s next Tuesday.
