‘Calm’ Thanksgiving weather for most of the country



'Calm' Thanksgiving weather for most of the country

By Judson Jones | CNN

About two-thirds of the country should really be thankful for the weather this holiday season, as travel returns to pre-pandemic levels over Thanksgiving.

“In the final days leading up to Thanksgiving, the weather remains relatively calm,” says the Weather Prediction Center (WPC).

It only takes a regular rain shower or gust of wind to ramp up travel delays from a few minutes to hours the day before Thanksgiving. The good news is that we don’t expect many weather conditions on Wednesday. Thursday seems more like a weekday to some, and those pesky winds and cold air are returning to the northeast on Friday to Saturday.

Whatever happens, there will be delays on the roads at airports just because of the extra volume.

These are the few places where the weather can contribute to travel delays.

The last day of travel before the holiday

“With Thanksgiving just a few days away, Mother Nature through Wednesday evening provides an appropriate weather pattern for travelers across the vast majority of the U.S. mainland,” the WPC said Tuesday.

In the northeast, wind was the story in the week leading up to Thanksgiving. The good news is, those in the northeast should disappear on Wednesday.

Some wind gusts from Dallas to Chicago could cause problems, but the delays shouldn’t be significant. Wind gusts can reach 40 mph in some areas.

In Southern California, Santa Ana winds will begin to strengthen during the day on Wednesday. Winds can blow from 30 to 60 mph. This could cause some delays at airports, but will become more problematic on Thanksgiving.

The Intermountain West could see some snow showers, which was the perfect arrival for anyone hitting the ski slopes over Thanksgiving.

Right now, there’s a 20% chance this snow will reach Denver.

The city has officially broken the record for the last “first measurable snow” and is still waiting. Measurable snow is 0.1 inches or more and Denver has recorded snow amounts since 1882. The last time the city had snow was 216 days ago.

In the northwest, residents are getting a small break on Wednesday from the onslaught of the storms in the Pacific Ocean they’ve endured over the past few weeks.

But on Wednesday evening, rain is in the picture. This next storm system will be slightly warmer, increasing the flood threat in the river valley below.

“A weather system will bring rain to the area Thursday and Friday,” the Seattle National Weather Service (NWS) says. “Rising snow levels combined with heavier rain will cause rivers to rise during this time, allowing for river flooding.”

During the night from Wednesday to Thanksgiving Day, a storm system builds up across the plains.

“As the trailing cold front moves east through the middle part of the country in the middle of the week, it sets the stage for scattered showers that break out Wednesday evening from the Lower Great Lakes into the southern US,” the WPC said.


This advancing cold front causes rain and thunderstorms in the early morning hours. These storms will then “invade the Ohio and Tennessee valleys later in the day on Thanksgiving with heavy local rainfall in southeastern Texas,” the WPC says.

The rest of the country looks set to remain dry this Thanksgiving.

“The regions most likely to remain dry during Thanksgiving are the Southwest, Intermountain West, Midwest, and much of the East Coast,” the WPC says.

In some areas, such as the drought-stricken areas of the Southwest, dryness is not what they want to see.

“Extended duration of very dry and warm weather will return over the holiday weekend,” the Los Angeles NWS says. This, coupled with the moderate Santa Ana wind forecast, will bring critical fire conditions to the region.

Temperatures have normalized or pushed above average across most of the country, except in the center of the US, where temperatures will drop below normal.

This cold, together with the rain, will move east on Thursday night.

Weather conditions for the return trip

The cold front will have moved through the east coast by Friday morning, with some rain still for some.

Highs from Texas to Maine will be between 5 and 15 degrees below normal Friday and Saturday.

Behind the front, not only does the bottom disappear due to the temperatures, but the wind also picks up again.

“Right now, looking at sustained winds from 15 to 25 mph, with gusts from 25 to 35 mph,” the NWS New York office says.

This is the one element travelers should be prepared for on a Friday.

The wind is one of the main culprits for travel delays in the late fall and winter months.

In addition, these winds sweeping across the Great Lakes are likely to force multi-effect snow into the weekend.

Later in the weekend, a fast-moving storm system could bring a rapid snowflake to the Midwest and Great Lakes.

The snow could extend as far as the Washington, DC region, and some computer models indicate that the system could end off the Mid-Atlantic coast and become slightly more intense.

As a result, snow could form in eastern Pennsylvania, reaching as far as Philadelphia and possibly further north as far as New York City.

Future model runs may have a better handle on this, and it’s good to watch as we get closer to the end of the week.

In the northwest, another system penetrates with more rain over the weekend.

In general, the weather will have some impact on travel, but it won’t be the gargantuan grunt of increasing airport delays that we’ve seen in a few years. Something to be thankful for, for sure.



No tickets sold with all six Mega Millions lottery numbers




No tickets sold with all six Mega Millions lottery numbers

The am/pm minimarket in Roseville, which sold a five-number ticket in the last draw of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery but without the Mega-number, is located at 1139 Douglas Blvd. The other ticket with five numbers but without the Mega Number was sold at the Gilroy Gas Station at 700 I St. in Gilroy. The California Lottery’s Corporate Communications Department is available until 5 p.m. at 916-822-8131. Callers to that number after 5pm will receive the name and number of the person on duty.

No tickets were sold with all six numbers in the latest draw of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery and the estimated jackpot for Tuesday’s draw will grow to $122 million. Two tickets were sold with five numbers, but without the Mega number, one at a gas station convenience store in Roseville, near the Sacramento area, and the other at a gas station in Gilroy, the southernmost city in the San Francisco Bay Area. They are worth $293,600 each, the California Lottery announced.

California law requires large payouts from lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis. A five-song ticket, but without the Mega-song, which is sold elsewhere, would be worth at least $1 million. The numbers drawn on Friday were 22, 45, 48, 58, 61 and the Mega number was 13. The estimated jackpot was $112 million. The draw was the 12th since the last time a ticket containing all six numbers was sold. According to the California Lottery, the odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega Number are 1 in 302,575,350. The total chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.

The game Mega Millions is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.

How a kid cracked YouTube’s secret code




In 2016, young YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson dropped out of college to try to solve how a video is going viral on YouTube.

In the fall of 2016, Jimmy Donaldson dropped out of college to solve one of media’s biggest mysteries: How exactly does a video go viral on YouTube? Donaldson, then 18, had been posting to the site since he was 12 without garnering much of an audience. But he was convinced that he was almost unlocking the secrets of the YouTube algorithm, the black box of rules and processes that determines which videos are recommended to viewers.

In the months that followed, Donaldson and a handful of his friends tried to crack the code. They made daily phone calls to analyze which videos went viral. They gave each other YouTube-related homework assignments and they teased successful channels for data on their most successful posts. “I woke up, I studied YouTube, I studied videos, I studied filmmaking, I went to bed and that was my life,” Donaldson recalled in a recent interview.

In 2016, young YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson dropped out of college to try to solve how a video is going viral on YouTube.

One day he got an idea for a video that he was sure would work. It was as simple as counting. Donaldson sat down in a chair and muttered one song after another for the next 40 hours, starting at zero and going up to 100,000. At the end of the exhausting stunt, he looked frantically into the camera. “What am I doing with my life?” he said.
