Turkey day is on the way. It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a short couple of weeks away, this year has flown by. While we're all looking forward to spending some time with family and friends, not to mention eating. However, weather predictions are calling for snow and ice during the Thanksgiving holiday, oh boy!


From what it's sounding like Mother Nature might be throwing an icy hissy fit that could create some problems. Especially when it comes to travel plans this Thanksgiving. So far several of the winter weather predictions for Oklahoma suggest early snow, sleet, and icy conditions. Looks like frozen turkey for 2022.

I can't remember the last really cold Thanksgiving we had, much less a Thanksgiving when it snowed. Typically it's sunny and pleasant, even warm outside. So freezing temperatures aren't exactly the norm. As a matter of fact, more often than not I'm in a short sleeve t-shirt outside frying turkeys sweating like crazy.

From everything we're seeing and hearing right now, it looks like it'll be seeing a very early winter for the Sooner State. The Farmer's Almanac, which is about 80% accurate when it comes to weather predictions is saying to prepare for snow. Maybe even as soon as this Thanksgiving. The almanac's extended forecast has bitterly cold temperatures along with snow and ice throughout the winter months, almost into spring 2023.

wwwNow if you're the type of person who enjoys the winter weather, snow, ice, and the cold you're probably welcoming all of this. For the rest of us, at least people like me AKA cold wussies, it's a nightmare. I hate the cold, so needless to say this winter's forecast isn't good news, to say the least. We're talking about the possibility of well below-average cold temperatures with snow and ice for weeks, maybe even months.

You'll definitely want to plan ahead and be prepared just in case Mother Nature decides to get moody and throw a frozen wrench into our Thanksgiving plans and travel this year. Start looking through the closets and find your coats, hats, gloves, and winter weather clothing. Sounds like you're going to need it. Keep a close eye on the weather if you'll be traveling during the Thanksgiving holiday just to be on the extra safe side.
