Frigid Morning; Mild Later

Frigid Morning

I should have stuck to my gut in forecast low temperatures yesterday. I was thinking temperatures could dip into the 20s and boy did they! The overnight low in Draffenville was 25°, making for a frigid start to the day!

With high pressure to the southeast of the region, temperatures should rebound relatively quickly to around 51° by 2 or 3 PM. Mostly Sunny skies should remain in place today, making for a pretty nice day today!

Cold Front Tuesday

Another cold front will approach the region Tuesday afternoon. Fortunately, this one will be pretty moisture starved, thus no rain is expected.

Southerly flow will remain in place ahead of the front. This will allow temperatures to warm into the mid to upper 50s in the afternoon. Temperatures should drop back into the upper 20s for lows on Tuesday night.

Thanksgiving Eve and Day

Wednesday will be another cold day as high pressure will be located west of the region, placing us in northerly flow. That will lead to temperatures in the low to mid 40s for highs. Another frigid night is expected Wednesday night as lows drop to the upper 20s.

High pressure will remain in place on Thanksgiving, meaning dry but chilly conditions will be likely. Despite mostly sunny skies, temperatures will likely top out in the mid to upper 40s.

Black Friday

Southerly flow will help temperatures rebound after starting off in the low 30s and upper 20s. Black Friday looks dry as temperatures will likely top out in the low to mid 50s.
