Jacksonville, Florida to Duluth, Minnesota

Here we go, back on the road again. We’re going from the Atlantic Coast to the Lake Superior shore, covering 1533 miles over the course of 3 days. Our pace will be 64.7mph, and our daily mileage will cover 517.6 miles. That’s pretty much all I have to say about that.

DAY ONE (Friday)
It appears that the only real threat for shower activity tomorrow will be in north Florida. It will be remote, as we will be through before noon and steer north into Georgia by the time convection really starts firing. We will stop for the day at the very apex of the Cumberland plateau in the city of Manchester, Tennessee.

DAY TWO (Saturday)
A dome of high pressure will be receding, pulling away from the center of the lower Ohio Valley, but we will be too far north by the time return flow kicks back in, and instead of worrying about light rain filtering north, we will simply enjoy some sunny skies and pretty boring driving. The day will end in La Salle, Illinois.

DAY THREE (Sunday)
High pressure also resides over northern Ontario, or it will over the weekend. Of course, this is cool Canadian high pressure, and at the southern flank of it, there is forecast to be an active boundary over southern Canada. Rain will move into northern Minnesota by the end of the weekend, and though we should anticipate a generally dry, pleasant day of driving, we should also expect a little bit of rain to finish things off.
