Looking cold for holiday shoppers

Good Tuesday to one and all. The forecast through Thanksgiving continues to be pretty nice and straightforward. Temps during this time will be milder than normal, but a big change is in store for weekend shoppers that should help set the mood.

Let’s update how the busy holiday period plays out:

Temps on Friday will start in the low 50s and then fall into the upper 30s behind a strong cold front. That front will produce a few showers during the day and then some snow flurries will be possible by Friday night and Saturday. This is very cold shot from the European Model:

The fun begins next week as the major blocking we’ve been talking about starts to really show up. The European Ensembles show a similar insane block to some recent runs of the GFS…

That’s a crazy look for the middle and end of next week. The latest run of the GFS matches up with the extreme blocking next week and goes crazy with the cold…

That’s your rain to snow setup with a blast of super cold air behind it. If you take that model run verbatim… it shows highs in the upper teens and lows in the single digits for some. That may be extreme… but gives you an idea of what this late November pattern is capable of.

I will have another update coming later today. Have a great Tuesday and take care.
