Today will remain overall cloudy and windy with highs 45-48, there’s a ton of cold air aloft and lake effect snow showers moving SE, more times than not these dry out over the Appalachians but sometimes some of these showers can make it to the coast and if that happens flurries and snow flakes will be possible.
Tonight skies will begin to clear ,winds will diminish which will allow temps to fall 29-32 degrees
Saturday as High pressure takes control again, we will start to moderate with highs in the mid 50s and lows 35-40 which is about normal
Sunday we warm up a bit more to the mid to upper 50s clouds will start to increase Sunday night ahead of the next storm system.
Monday and Tuesday will be quite warm with highs 60-63 BUT
A cold front will move SE bringing a chance of showers Monday, and possibly stall south of us and lead to a hefty rain maker Monday – Wednesday
1-2 inches of rain is possible from Monday to Wednesday, this storm will also mark the beginning of a much stormier and cooler pattern than what we have seen for most of November.
If you watch this animation, it’s basically just storm after storm for the next 14 days especially once we get towards the week of Thanksgiving and each one tracks a little more south than the next, that is the -NAO blocking pattern slowly becoming established
And total precipitation (rainfall) through Thanksgiving weekend ranges from 3-5 inches for the area.
So we are clearly entering a much stormier and progressively colder pattern starting with the storm Monday – Wednesday of this coming week.
