As my husband and I were married on Nov. 30 six years ago, I can advise you to be prepared for a wide range of weather possibilities on that date. The morning of 11/30/02 was mild and sunny; as we drove to the church, it was wet and windy; by 4 fat snowflakes were falling prettily; within an hour the roads were slippery and treacherous. Hopefully 11/30/08 won't be similar.

Two of my adult children, who live in Columbus, say it's always warmer there, but be forewarned that they're more likely to have problems with ice than snow.

I agree, best thing to do is watch the forecast on weather.com and be as prepared as you can. It will be cold but there could be no snow and dry or there could be a whole bunch of snow, or snow and ice mixed. The good thing is at the beginning of the cold weather season the salt trucks and road crews are much more responsive to storms than later on in the season.

Once you get south of Cuyahoga County the weather improves dramatically most of the time in the winter, but it depends on the type of storm we're having.

We can get just about any type of weather. It can be sunny and in the mid 60's or bitterly cold with lots of snow. Generally its safe to say highs in the 30's and lows in the 20's, give or take 10 degrees. Especially in November, we can get a significant amount of lake effect snow, which can drop mass amounts of heavy, wet snow in a short period of time. The further south you get from Lake Erie, the lesser the snow amounts, as far as lake effect. Columbus is generally warmer in the fall and spring, and should be a few degrees higher than in Cleveland around this time. Obviously, its way too far away to predict.

Cleveland is definitely colder than Columbus in the winter. Thanksgiving weekend is supposed to be cold, so bundle up!

Hope this helps!
