Turkey Day is Coming…

November 23, 2008 at 8:09 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

We’ve had an impressive string of beautiful weekends in North Texas.  You have to go all the way back to September 13th (when Hurricane Ike hit Texas) to find the last time any rain fell on a weekend at DFW Airport.  That could change today with light, scattered showers in the forecast.  Rainfall totals will be low with the heaviest rain east of I-35.

More importantly, this is Thanksgiving week when people’s thoughts turn to holiday travel.  The metroplex has certainly had its share of interesting Thanksgiving weather events; who could forget Leon Lett in the Texas Stadium snow back in 1993?  Last year, temperatures plunged to the 40’s and rain moved through the area causing travel problems.

We’ll avoid the winter winter this year with a high in the 60’s.  However, the current forecast has scattered showers moving through North Texas on Thanksgiving Day so there could be some travel troubles.

For some interesting statistics on Thanksgivings past in DFW, check out the Thanksgiving Day Climatology Summary at the National Weather Service website: http://www.srh.noaa.gov/fwd/CLIMO/dfw/holiday/dthanks.html
