I think of Thanksgiving as the “football holiday.” It starts with games on Turkey Day, followed by rivalry day for the college game on Saturday, and then more NFL action on Sunday. Of COURSE we should have a forecast for the home of the Hall of Fame!
At 1251AM, ET, Canton was reporting a temperature of 47 with overcast skies. The areas across the Eastern Great Lakes were streaked with a few clouds, as one of several small scale disturbances lies north of the Great Lakes. Stronger systems lie over the Mid-Atlantic and western Atlantic, with a developing feature in the Central Plains.
A strong trough over the Upper Midwest is going to broaden and strengthen across the region, which in turn will help the rapid intensification of low pressure centered over Oklahoma and moving towards the Great Lakes. Warm air will stream north into the Upper Ohio Valley ahead of the showers, which will start shortly after midnight on Monday morning. Cold air at the back end of the system will turn rain to snow by Monday afternoon. Precipitation will be waning when snow arrives, so accumulations will be tempered.

Nothing to ruin the weekend as it winds down, but certainly, we can expect some commute issues when Tuesday morning rolls around. Satellite doesn’t yet look ominous.
