Early this morning we have showers in the area along with much milder temperatures with readings in the 40s.
The shower chances diminish during this afternoon and temperatures will be quite mild reaching the upper 50s. A cold front will cross the area around midnight accompanied by more showers.
Saturday will be a dry and cool day, another Arctic cold front will be crossing the area late at night.
Sunday promises to be a very cold and windy day with temperatures not rising much above freezing and with wind gusts above 30MPH will bring wind chills down into the teens.
Near record low temperatures on Monday morning but moderate a bit during the day with much less wind.
The potential for a storm is growing for late Tuesday night into Wednesday as the American model (GFS) has now joined the European model in bringing the coastal storm up into our area. Hard to pinpoint details at the present time but it appears now that we will have significant rains along the coast with rain changing to snow inland, again it is too early to tell possible accumulations but it is something definitely to be watched for the busiest travel day of the year.
The storm will be moving away on Thanksgiving Day leaving us with a cold and windy holiday.
