Big travel day… nice here, but delays elsewhere…November 21st, 2012 at 7:26 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
Holiday travelers, beware! Of all days for the FAA flight status website to be down… it’s crashed on the busiest travel day of the year! Still not up as of 7:30am, but you can always check LOCAL arrivals/departures at the Dayton International Airport here –> FLIGHT STATUS. And of course, be sure to check with your specific airline. We are seeing a lot of flights out of Dayton delayed–fog is a HUGE concern to our west this morning:
Some of our northern counties will see reduced visibility this morning, but we all get into plenty of sunshine this afternoon, thanks to high pressure once again building in:
Winds will be light today, but on Thanksgiving, a southerly wind develops as the high shifts east. This will help temperatures soar! It looks fantastic, with highs running about 15-degrees above normal:
The great weather only lasts two days, though–today and tomorrow–changes arrive for Black Friday. A cold front approaches in the morning, bringing showers to the area for early shoppers. The afternoon looks dry if you can wait for your deal… but it will be breezy and MUCH colder, with temperatures falling through the 40s. And very chilly conditions stick around for the upcoming weekend. If you’re heading to the BIG game, be sure you’re planning an outfit that includes lots of layers!
