Dry Pattern Sets Up for SNE

After yesterday and this morning's heavy rains, cold rains this morning across southern New England with temperatures in the mid to upper 30's, just to warm for snowfall. It was a wet and windy ride to work early this morning, I, myself, got soaked heading into work this morning as I didn't have an umbrella or raincoat on. Not a smart move. Did you notice the difference a day makes? Yesterday the temperature hit 70 degrees in SE Mass. Today, temperatures have stayed in the 40's with windchills in the 30's this afternoon. Tomorrow will be much of the same and then we step down a couple degrees each day until we bottom out on Monday with highs rebounding only into the mid and upper 30's after morning lows in the mid 10's in the suburbs to mid 20's in the cities.

Thereafter, we will warm up BIG TIME heading into the Thanksgiving holiday. High temperatures on Wednesday will get into the 50's once again and then we could have a really mild Thanksgiving Day with highs in the mid 60's, believe it or not! We will warm dramatically ahead of a cold front loaded with rainfall and ripples of low pressure along the front that will douse the area with heavy rains late Thanksgiving night and early Black Friday. Expect it to feel more like Christmas after Thanksgiving as the coldest shot of air we have seen in a while for November will move into the area for Thanksgiving weekend, later in the period.

Current projections show that the upper Plains, MN, ND, SD, MT, could see temperatures only manage 0's and 10's for highs the week after Thanksgiving weekend with subzero lows. That cold will move east.
