Tracking arctic air for the weekend

Good Wednesday, folks. We continue to track a pattern that is taking on a wintry look from this weekend into Thanksgiving week. It all gets started with the arrival of an arctic cold front Friday night and Saturday.

Here’s a quick breakdown:

- The arctic front arrives late Friday. Heavy rain and gusty winds ahead of the front will combine to make Friday a nasty day. Look at the rainfall numbers:

GFS Rain- The cold sinks in by Saturday morning, with temperatures in the upper 20s and low 30s and the potential for a few snow flurries.

- Highs by Saturday will reach only the mid and upper 30s, and gusty winds will make it feel even colder. Highs Sunday will start in the teens and stay in the upper 20s and low 30s.

- A few flurries are possible over the weekend, and you can see that on the GFS:

Next week continues to look interesting, as cold air stays in place and a couple of systems work in from the southwest. There’s a lot of uncertainty on how all this will play out, but the GFS shows snow and a mix coming our way by late Monday and Tuesday:

The Canadian Model has a similar look during that time. A bigger storm system is possible over Thanksgiving weekend. There’s a lot of winter showing up over the next several weeks.

Have a great Wednesday and take care.
