Weather Conditions Improve Next Few Days Cold Front Friday Wave On Saturday
The disorganized storm system of the last several days is now sitting in Nova Scotia but we still have this large upper trough that has to swing through. Some rain freezing rain and snow is still going on in parts of Upstate NY and Western New England today. The remaining clouds are still lingering around this morning from Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England but there is hope for brightening skies or perhaps some afternoon sunshine. Highs should reach the upper 40s to lower 50s this afternoon and that should at least help to rid us of that damp raw feeling outside.
Regional radar shows precipitation moving northward through upstate NY which is distinctly separate from what you area seeing over Eastern Maine and into New Brunswick and Nova Scotia which is more with the old coastal low. Gradually all of this does get out of the way and we can see some leftover light precipitation aloft on the local radars. That should be gone soon enough.

Another low is developing off the Mid Atlantic coast but it is well offshore. It does keep things chilly around here so as skies start to clear out tonight with lows in the 20s to lower 30s inland and mid to upper 30s warmer urban centers and along the coast.
Wednesday and Thursday are both looking like 2 rather decent days with sunshine and highs reaching upper 40s and lower 50s on Wednesday and into the low and middle 50s on Thursday. This is all ahead of the next cold front that arrives on Friday.
That front is being dragged eastward by low pressure moving across the Great Lakes and into Southeastern Canada. There could be a few showers with the front when it goes by later Friday afternoon or evening. Friday’s highs will be mostly in the 50s. However the front is looking to slow down and stall out as another wave will be coming along. This time the wave will be much further to the south.
Being that this is the middle of November and we aren’t anywhere close to the time of year where snowfall is normal, there isn’t a whole lot of cold air around. Plus this wave isn’t anything to write home about strength wise. We will see sun and arriving clouds on Saturday and it looks like some rain out of this Saturday night into Sunday morning.
The northern fringe of this system allows for the possibility of a cheap thrill snow Saturday night into Sunday morning mainly for inland areas north and west of the coast. Sunshine returns Sunday with highs likely only in the 40s.
Next week is Thanksgiving and it is the heavily traveled week of the year. It seems that Wednesday could be the one day where there is an issue. A developing storm in the west will be headed to our west and we cold see a cold front approaching here with showers. Monday and Tuesday at the very least like dry and seasonal temperature wise. If the timing is right Thanksgiving day will be dry and chilly and also a bit on the windy side.
