Temperatures Begin To Rise Today Into The Weekend Rainy Thanksgiving Week Outlook
This Thursday morning was the coldest morning of the Autumn season so far. We saw lows in the 20s just about everywhere from Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England including some of the warmer urban centers. Cold spots hit their bottom in the teens.
Today we begin a warm up as a west southwest wind develops under plenty of sunshine. The satellite picture shows skies are mainly clear and the regional radar is quiet and will remain so into the weekend. Nothing should stop temperatures from reaching the upper 40s and lower 50s this afternoon.
While we will have clear skies there will be a bit of a west southwest breeze so temperatures tonight won’t be as cold as lows will be in the mid 30s to lower 40s. This leaves us with a nice sunny day for Friday and temperatures will reach the upper 50s and lower 60s.
Moving on to the weekend I think Saturday will be the better of the two weekend days. We have a weak cold front that will be coming through Saturday afternoon that won’t have much with it but we will see winds shift from the west to the northeast as the day wears on so this will keep temperatures from getting much above the upper 50s and lower 60s. We should have decent amount of sunshine however for most of the day. Some clouds will arrive late and set us up for a cooler Sunday.
The cold front backs northward or at least tries to as a warm front for Sunday. This likely keeps us in lots of clouds with highs just in the 50s. North of NYC the onshore flow may keep temperatures in the 40s for a good part of the day. A cold front with showers to the west Sunday weakens as it moves east and really doesn’t do much when it goes by Sunday night, perhaps with another scattered shower or two. Monday another high builds in and we will see some sunshine with a northeast wind. Highs Monday will be in the 50s. The building high will turn it colder on Tuesday with highs in the 40s. Then we watch as a storm system from the Central Plains heads for the Great Lakes Wednesday and we see the likelihood of widespread rain and downpours into Wednesday night. Highs could reach into the 60s before the front passes. Thanksgiving day is looking like we will see improving weather conditions with some sunshine and a gusty breeze with highs mostly in the 50s. Dry air should last through Friday.
