Black Friday Weather Changes

Good Black Friday to one and all. Our holiday shopping season is off and running on a much different note than what we had for Thanksgiving. A cold front is sweeping across the state and this is having a big impact on our weather.

This front will move through early in the day and will have a line of showers along it. The rain should taper off from west to east early this afternoon as gusty northwesterly winds usher in a blast of cold air.

Temps will start the day in the 50s and stay there until early afternoon. That’s when the cold begins to take over and readings will drop like a rock. Many thermometers will head toward the freezing mark by the middle of the evening. Here’s your one stop shop for tracking tools:

Current temperatures


Temps by Saturday morning will hit the low and middle 20s and only recover into the upper 30s for highs. A passing snow flurry is possible during this time.

Sunday will start even colder with upper teens and low 20s. Readings by the afternoon will hit the 40s with a mix of sun and clouds.

Clouds will quickly increase Sunday night and Monday as an area of low pressure works our way. Rain will develop during the day and continue into Tuesday as the low works right on top of us. Cold air will then push in late in the day Tuesday with some snow mixing in with the rain. That should change to a period of light snow into Tuesday night.

You can see this switch showing up on the GFS:

I will continue to update the progress of that system through the weekend. Have a great  Friday and take care.
