Thanksgiving Forecast

Turkeys will thaw out in the morning and then warm in the oven to a high of 350°. The kitchen will be hot and humid. If you bother the cook there may be a squall or two. Later in the afternoon the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey and cause accumulations of 1-3 inches on plates. Isolated 5 inch amounts will be possible on Dad’s plate.

Cranberry sauce will create slippery spots on one side of the plate as mashed potatoes drift across the other. Butter will spread across some sections of rolls.

A weight watch and indigestion warning will remain in effect for the rest of the day. Late in the evening clean up operations will begin. The turkey will diminish to sandwiches which will become colder during the night in the refrigerator.

As for the weekend forecast? The turkey will taper off into left-overs but in some sections there will be a warming trend as soup develops.

    Does the "1-3 inches on plates localized 5" amounts…" relate not only to Thanksgiving but to Sunday's snow event?

    Could this be an advisory type snow?

    A day or so ago, everyone was very skeptical of this storm's snow making power, and predicted a dusting to an inch… now 1-3… Could we squeeze out 4 or 5 inches of snow out of this thing?

    ..And, additional comments..
    NWS Davenport: 1-3" Likely with Localized 3-4" amounts.
    NWS Chicago: Several inches of snow possible by Monday Morning.
    NWS La Crosse: 1-2" of snow with localized 3" amounts south & east.
    NWS Milwaukee: 3-6+" highest along Lake Michigan

    I know it is a little ways out, but which region of the stateline will have the heaviest amounts of snow?

    -I live in Dubuque, Iowa.. Any idea on how much I can expect?
