As you're finishing up your pre-Thanksgiving preparations and getting set for a fantastic holiday celebration, the atmosphere is finishing up it's stay on the negative side of the normal mercury. For the last few days, we've seen a trough over our area, resulting in below-normal temperatures and a taste of winter-like temperatures. That will come to an end tomorrow, however, as a weak system cuts to our west, warm-sectoring us on the southeast side of the storm and resulting in much warmer temperatures compared to the past two days. While this warmth will be short lived, it will make for a pleasant end to the week, perfect for some outdoor fun during your Thanksgiving celebration or for frenzied shopping trips on Friday. It should be noted that while it will be above normal, we're not getting anywhere near the extreme warmth we saw at the start of the month, where temperatures were 20 degrees or more above normal! In general, temps will be ~10 degrees above normal, with readings on Friday a few degrees warmer than Thursday.
Here's a look at the southeastward progression of the frontal boundary throughout the day on Saturday.
Here are the dailies:
Thanksgiving Day: Partly cloudy, with highs in the low to mid 50s.
Friday: Mostly sunny, with highs in the mid to upper 50s.
Saturday: A chance of showers, otherwise, partly cloudy, with highs peaking early at about 50, and then temps falling throughout the day. Chance of precipitation is 40%.
Sunday: Mostly sunny, with highs in the mid 40s.
Monday: Partly cloudy, with a slight chance of some sprinkles in southern areas. Highs in the mid 40s. Chance of precipitation is 10%.
Tuesday: A chance of rain, especially in the afternoon and evening hours. Highs in the upper 40s. Chance of precipitation is 50%.
Wednesday: A chance of rain. Highs in the low to mid 50s. Chance of precipitation is 50%.
From all of us here at Southern Connecticut Weather, best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and a happy start to the holiday season!
