Holiday travel weather updates

May 25, 2017: Depending on when you hit the road or take to the sky Friday, you may have to deal with some wet weather as we get into the holiday weekend.

Models are converging on an outlook showing a round of showers and thunderstorms working through during Friday afternoon and early evening. Be ready for wet roads and possibly a quick downpour or two.

There is also a low risk for severe weather south of I-88, mainly in the form of wind and hail. If you are traveling southward, keep a close eye on the scattered storms as they develop.

Both Saturday and Sunday are trending dry. There is a slight chance for rain and storms Saturday evening and night, but those storms are trending south of our area and may miss us altogether. Scattered afternoon showers may pop up again by Memorial Day as cooler weather enters the picture.

Nationally, severe storms look possible around Denver Friday afternoon, with a potential severe weather outbreak centered on Oklahoma into Saturday.

Wet weather should be leaving the East Coast throughout Friday, so flight delays should be at a minimal (at least because of weather).

Travel safe this weekend!

    As for the whole slow travel thing. We’ve done both, and after time we realized we’d much rather miss a few things and take it slow than rush rush rush everywhere. Plus then you always have a reason to go back!
