High pressure is beginning to become the norm across the country, which bodes well for our 979 mile, two day trip from Pennsylvania to Arkansas. As always, we will be slowed by the drive through the Appalachians, however we will be able to maintain a respectable 62.5mph pace. The first day will be a little bit longer, but we’ll cover 500 miles even on that first day. I hope you bring your sunglasses.
High pressure has a crushing death grip on the center of the country. There is a little area low pressure over the northern Rockies trying to gather some energy, but that’s going to promptly fall apart in the face of the much stronger ridge. I guess what I’m trying to say is enjoy the drive, because you won’t have any weather to contend with. The day ends in Huntington, West Virginia.
Kentucky is probably one of my favorite states. Very friendly people, a lot of beautiful natural phenomenon, and generally some of the best weather in the country by almost anyone’s measure. We’ll spend a lot of time in the Bluegrass state, so you’ll be able to tell me if you share my opinion on this second day on our trip. No problems in Kentucky, and none in Jonesboro either.
