After a blustery and cold Monday, today will be a better day with more sunshine and less wind. Temperatures will still struggle. The farther north and east you go, the more clouds you will find today. The yellow color on this map shows a deck of low stratocumulus clouds:
Highs today will be 8-10 degrees below average.
Want snow? Head to New York. Downwind of Lake Ontario, between 3 and 4 feet of snow is on the ground in some places.
The busy day before Thanksgiving will feature increasing clouds. Rain may push in by around sunset but it’s more likely after 7pm. At the onset of the precipitation there may be wet snowflakes or sleet pellets mixed in.
On the holiday, a fizzling low pressure system will meander through and there will be a deck of low clouds around all day. Out of these clouds there can be a touch of light rain or drizzle at times. Afternoon tempoeratures in the 40s.
Friday will not be any nicer looking and once again there can be a little rain in the area.
That low will intensify along the East Coast Saturday and the Valley will get into a chilly northwest flow. At this time of the year that typically means clouds and Saturday will be no exception. The chance for showers will continue.
Sunday looks dry and sunnier for those traveling at the end of the holiday weekend.
Looks unsettled next week but it should be warm enough for windy rain events.
We’ll have the December forecast next week. Latest model trends suggest a stormy month with frequent precipitation. While there will certainly be some cold days, the month should not be far below (or above) average. Much colder than last year!
