Weather Update for Chicago, Wednesday, November 22, 2017
Wednesday will be a nice travel day, sunny with moderate winds and temp a bit colder in the mid to high 30s. Temperatures will begin to moderate on Thursday. Thanksgiving day temperatures will climb slightly to the upper 30s to mid 40s. Friday will be partly sunny with temperatures continuing to moderate to the lower to mid 50s. So a nice Thanksgiving travel day sandwich with Wednesday and Friday being fanfreakintastic. So take the dog with! You should! Go ahead, your guest should not mind. Who doesn’t love your dog…Right?!
Oh we could tell you about the two different models that are used to forecast and the endless physics behind low and high pressure and the impact on the jet stream. Or the impact of living near one of the largest inland lakes in the world. But at the end of the day you say….”Listen pal, I really don’t give a rats ass who’s high and who’s low, why does something titled european have an impact on my midwestern ass who needs to get in the car to visit our family on Thanksgiving of which Aunt Sasha who is the hairiest women in the world world will be there with with her endless little tea cakes asking when we will have our 5th child when we only have two. Then there’s Uncle Larry who gropes anything that stands still for 10 seconds. So ask me why I should give a crap about your millibars, ridges, upper level something or other? I just want to know if it’s going to rain as I’m driving to mom and dad’s pal! Keep all that other scientific mumbo jumbo to yourself. Seriously!”
OK we get it! Ease up on the coffee btw. 10 cups is a bit too excessive :-).
Have a great Thanksgiving …Pal!
