This week featured our first Arctic surge of very cold air, reminding us that winter is just around the corner along with the holiday season. A reinforcing shot of cold air has settled across the Northeast once again Friday with temperatures averaging 10-15 degrees below normal. This surge of cold air will not last long though, as warmer air will be on the way this weekend.
Temperatures will start to moderate Saturday, followed by warm front Saturday night with a shower or two followed by temperatures popping into the low 50s by Sunday afternoon.
A storm will quickly ride up the Ohio Valley into the Great Lakes that will deliver rain and not snow on Monday, as we will be on the warm side of the storm. In fact, I would not be surprised if temperatures crack the 60 degree mark by Monday afternoon.
Colder air returns to the Northeast by middle of next week with a storm lurking offshore by Wednesday night into Thanksgiving. At this point, it is too early to tell if the storm will hit us with wintry precipitation or if the storm stays out to sea. Stay tuned to the FOX CT weather team as we will be tracking your Thanksgiving forecast throughout the next week.
