Traveling weather should be fine if your route leads to South Central Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving.

Here’s some good news for Thanksgiving travel: if you’re going to Harrisburg, Carlisle, York, Lancaster, or anywhere nearby, you should have no problems.

From midweek on, meteorologist Matt Steinbugl of the National Weather Service predicts high and dry conditions in south central Pennsylvania.

“In fact, weather-wise, the middle to later part of next week appears to be the best part of the week,” Steinbugl said.

“I don’t see any precipitation as a factor for Wednesday or Thursday, or even later in the week,” says the forecaster.

The week will begin with a chilly, windy start, but temperatures should warm up by Thanksgiving Day.

“So there’s not a lot of weather to be concerned about… for that part of next week during the holiday,” Steinbugl said.

Even the retailing festivals of Black Friday and Shop Small Saturday – or whatever variation you prefer to commemorate – appear to be well-defined.

“On the computer model guidance, I don’t see anything that indicates a strong chance of precipitation.”

“As I said, it’s looking mostly dry from the middle of next week through next weekend,” Steinbugl predicted.

It’ll be enjoyable.

Daytime highs will be in the mid-40s at the start of the week, according to Steinbugl, with blustery winds from nearby storm systems likely making it feel even colder.

For Thanksgiving Day, however, the highs should return to the low 50s, which is a few degrees above average.

Storms circulating through the Great Lakes region, which could dump snow in northwestern Pennsylvania, are expected to bring strong winds our way Monday and Tuesday, according to Steinbugl.

“We could see wind gusts of over 40 miles per hour in the Harrisburg area on Monday and Tuesday,” he said.

“However, there has been no rain.”

“So that’s probably the biggest impact for the first part of the week, along with colder temperatures and colder air,” says the forecaster.

When you add in the wind, it’s going to be pretty chilly.

There will be some chilly nights ahead.

Monday night, wind chills will likely be around 20 degrees, possibly in the upper teens.”

“Then Tuesday looks to be the coldest day of the week, with highs in the low 40s.
