Let’s all hit the road, shall we? Our drive through the western side of the Appalachians and up towards the Great Lakes will take a day and a half as we cover 859 miles. The interstates, along with the residents of Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan will encourage a 70mph pace, and our first full day will net 559 miles.
DAY ONE (Monday)
High pressure, and fairly warm high pressure remains in control for most of the eastern United States. It’s a fairly warm high pressure too, which is good for windows being rolled down as you barrel down the highway. There is a stationary front across the Florida-Georgia border that could, in theory, bring about some isolated showers with clouds right as we get going out of Macon, but that shouldn’t last very long. There might be a bit of a pressure trough around the Smokey Mountains, but the only issue that might induce is some mountain fog as we slip through Tennessee. Other than that? No problem. We’ll make it to the northern side of Cincinnati and the suburb of Sharonville.
DAY TWO (Tuesday)
The wind might be a little bit more vigorous as we head northward out of Cincinnati towards Michigan, but we won’t really have any additional weather to contend with. Along with the warm south winds, there could be a little bit of mid level overcast, but that doesn’t dampen the roadways. It’s almost peak fall color season in Michigan, so enjoy the trip to Lansing.
