NYC Chilly Air Delay Saves Thanksgiving
Good morning everyone. We’ve been watching that chilly push of air and our subsequent front today. Things are moving at a snails-pace as far as that air is concerned, which gives us good news for Thanksgiving Day itself. On the other hand, it’ll make for a colder holiday weekend instead of modifying temps.
We’ll also keep an eye out for a secondary push of cold air after the holiday weekend, which could make for a chilly workweek mid-week, onward next week. An active period is also brewing system-wise, but maybe not particularly for our area here in the Northeast. That being said, with plenty of cold air in place, an unforeseen system placed “wrong” or developing in the “wrong” spot, could give us our first snows of the season.
We already saw pretty good snows for parts of interior New England yesterday as expected.
For today, look for slowly decreasing clouds and seasonable highs in the low 50’s. We’ll also go breezy later on and tonight, with lows near 40.
Thanksgiving Day tomorrow is looking textbook seasonable, with sunshine, a steady breeze, and highs in the 50-55 range.
The chiller air begins to work its way in on Friday, before we go downright cold for Saturday. Expect highs in the upper 40’s to near 50 Friday, then we plunge into the mid to upper 20’s overnight.
Saturday is looking unseasonably cold for this time of year, with highs in the upper 30’s to near 40. That’ll put us 12-15 degrees below average depending on your source. Temps modify a little bit on Sunday, but we remain below average. Highs will be in the low to mid 40’s.
We modify back to near 50 on Monday for average/near-average temps, then colder air tries to sneak back by Tuesday as we dip back into the 40’s.
