We will jump right into the forecast tonight. After a stormy Sunday which brought very minor snow to some of our hill towns, we warm up for an unsettled Thanksgiving week.
The start of the week looks nice! We will see clear conditions and warmer temperatures as high pressure takes control. These will probably be the best days of the week weather wise.
The day before Thanksgiving is looking wet, as a developing storm passes well to our west. The guidance is in good agreement on the timing and precipitation type: rain. I'm not sure the storm will be as wet as the one we just experienced, but I do think that with wet conditions during the day and evening we will see some travel disruptions. In the wake of the storm, wind will pick up and colder air will flow into the region.
Turkey day is looking good! As I mentioned above, colder air will flow in after the storm departs, but we are not expecting anything like last year--the coldest Thanksgiving on record. Conditions should be dry, maybe a bit breezy. We will need to watch the trends this week because wind may be an issue in the wake of the storm.
The day after Thanksgiving is looking colder than normal, but nice as well. High pressure will likely dominate during this time period.
There is a fair amount of uncertainty about the weekend. While Saturday is looking ok right now as high pressure remains in control, there looks to be another developing system by late in the day that will approach the area. We will see what kind of cold air is in place, but Sunday could bring a bout of wintry precipitation before a changeover to rain.
Monday: Mostly sunny and warmer. Highs in the low to mid 50s.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny with increasing clouds late. Highs in the low to mid 50s.
