A big travel day and luckily the weather across the Northeast could not be better. Plenty of sunshine this Wednesday with cool seasonal temperatures with highs climbing into the Lwr-mid 40's by afternoon. High pressure will sit right over us providing a very calm wind, which turn onshore during the afternoon. As the high pulls off the coast, a milder wind from the SSE will develop on Thanksgiving. I expect partly sunny skies for the holiday with highs climbing into the lwr-mid 50's. We will have to watch out for some sneaky low clouds which could back in off the ocean. These clouds will likely increase during the afternoon through Thursday night. The mild air will remain in place Friday and will likely be a little bit warmer. Highs will climb well into the 50's nearing 60 degrees with partly sunny skies.
Clouds will increase later Friday afternoon as a weakening cold front will be sliding through the region. This front may trigger a few passing light showers and may even mix with a few snow showers in the mountain. This front will mark the dividing line between the mild air and the return of the more typical late November cold which will return for the weekend. Plenty of sunshine can be expected this weekend but a much cooler feel will be in place with highs in the Lwr 40's and 30's across the north country. High pressure will sit over us into the start of next week keep the sun going through Monday. Clouds will increase Tuesday along with our next best chance of showers.
Signs are pointing towards a more active weather pattern for early December. Too early to say with confidence the whos, whats and wheres, but it is safe to say a stronger storm could be impacting New England sometime in the near future. Of course the eventual track will determine the temperature and precipitation type. This time of year, we are always keeping an eye on what's coming down the road, but also very mindful of the quick changes which can happen in just a 24 hour forecast!
