Poughkeepsie, New York to Shreveport, Louisiana

Yet another road trip! What does this family have against flying places?! At least this isn’t a cross-country trip, but will still take 3 days to navigate from southeastern NY to northern LA. Hopefully we avoid the snow this time!

DAY ONE

Partly cloudy skies greet us this morning as high pressure sits off the New England coastline. Warm temperatures will greet the Northeast as upper 70s and maybe even some low 80s are possible as we cruise through northern NJ and into eastern PA. We’ll probably see some more clouds in the evening as we push into northern VA as a frontal boundary pushes closer to our route, but it should be a dry day as we finish in Harrisonburg, VA.

DAY TWO

The boundary that was pushing through the Appalachians overnight pretty much washes out by morning, with a lingering bit of it found over the Mid-Atlantic. A bit cooler temps will greet the region, but the conditions should be dry as we head southwestward through VA into eastern TN. Overall, another fairly good day!

DAY THREE

It’s going to be a long day of driving, but with high pressure controlling much of the Deep South and Gulf Coast, we shouldn’t have any real problems driving! Might be some patchy fog as we head out of Chattannooga towards Birmingham, but should burn off fairly quickly. We’ll continue along I-20 through Tuscaloosa and through Mississippi before pushing into northern Louisiana late in the evening. It’ll be late but eventually we finally arrive worry-free into Shreveport!
