Today’s road trip takes us from the Mid-Atlantic to far Eastern Texas, as we negotiate 1,425 miles between Dover and Beaumont. This will take us 3 days to cover, so let’s see what this trip through the Southeast US brings us!
High pressure is found parked over the Eastern US, making for a relatively pleasant day today as we head west from Dover through Washington, DC and eventually along the spine of the Appalachians in western Virginia. Mostly sunshine is expected for the longest day of the year as we eventually finish the day in Bristol, TN.
High pressure is pushed off further to the south for today, and some layered clouds are expected at the start of the day as an approaching cold front is found over the Ohio Valley. We should push southward quick enough to avoid any of the shower/thunderstorm activity associated with it in the morning. Dry weather is expected for the rest of the day as we pass through Chattanooga and Birmingham, AL as we finish the day in Livingston, AL.
Once again, a fairly quiet day is in store for us as we head down towards coastal MS, then head westward on I-10. There could be a couple afternoon thunderstorms dotting the area as we pass through southern LA, but nothing too widespread that should impede our progress as we eventually make our way into Beaumont!
