We’re hitting the Easter weekend, which means several people will be travelling. I, for one, will be travelling tomorrow (apologies for any late forecasts) too. I’m just saying, holiday travel is definitely a real thing. The one in particular that we are forecasting for is a 2 day trip covering 1202 miles. We won’t divide it into two, but rather cover 516 miles on Saturday at 64.6mph, and cover more ground on Sunday. That’s what Easter is all about!
DAY ONE (Saturday)
There is an active cold front moving through the Appalachians tonight, but by the time we get to our departure time, the cold front will have reached the Atlantic. Cold air will be filtering in from the Great Lakes, behind the system, and there is expected to be some lingering moisture at the mid levels. This means a threat for snow in the high terrain of western Pennsylvania but a stark clearing by the time we cross into Ohio. We will then CROSS Ohio, and end the day as far west as we can get, reaching Berlin in the northwest corner.
DAY TWO (Sunday)
Temperatures will be warmer on Easter as we driver through the I States, covering a lot of ground on Eastern Sunday. The shower activity will linger north of our route on Sunday, so we will remain dry on the way to Lincoln. If there is any concern, it’s with southerly wind through the Plains towards that band of rain to our north. Both hands on the wheel with these cross winds! That’s the crux of the concerns, though. I suspect we will arrive in the Nebraska capital with no problems.
