Happy Thanksgiving As Sunshine Warms Temps Into The 50s

Watching Sunday System

A very nice Thanksgiving Day is upon is here in the Eastern US. Yes there are some patchy clouds but there will also be a fair amount of sunshine today. A chilly start however will not prevent us from reaching into the low and middle 50s for highs this afternoon. We do have a cold front to the west and as the warmer air is moving across upstate NY we are seeing some patchy precip on the radar but there are no issues for today. Enjoy your day and enjoy the warm up because the next round of changes are about to get underway.

Tonight into Friday morning we see another cold front moving through. Much like what we saw Sunday night into Monday, the same will play out tonight into Friday morning. Look for some showers between midnight and 7am and then the front passes and colder air follows.

This is not going to be a big rain producer at all. We are looking at most areas getting a quarter of an inch of rain or less and for some it will be a tenth of an inch of rain or less.

This low moving through upstate NY and New England will bring the first accumulating snows to New England and they are coming a few weeks late. Better late than never for snow lovers is the motto of the day. Lake effect plus snow from the intensifying low itself will bring 6 inch plus amounts in parts of Upstate NY and Northern New England. Interior Maine has probably the most catching up to do.

Our weather for Friday will see decreasing clouds and increasing sun. We will reach the highs of the day before daybreak and then temperatures will ease through the 40s. Then we head south Friday night under clear skies and a gusty breeze. Most lows will be in the mid 20s to around 30. Saturday looks like a nice day with sunshine but it will be cold. Highs will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Sunday brings the next low diving southeast from the Great Lakes and a secondary forms nearby. Right now it seems that there will be some snow from this and the best chances for accumulating snow later Sunday into Sunday night will be north of NYC and Philadelphia, unless the low nudges a little further south. I’m thinking that for areas inland, the potential exists for a coating to an inch or two Sunday night and that would be for areas from Northeast Pennsylvania and Northwest New Jersey east across the Hudson Valley mostly along and north of Route 84 in Connecticut. I want to wait for the dayside cycle of model runs to play through before being more definitive about it. We will post this on Patreon later today. None of the models suggest anything other than a weakish system here so there isn’t much upside but it mean the first flakes and the first measurable snows for some areas. Colder weather follows to start next week with below average temperatures at least into midweek.
