A cold day for holiday shoppers

Good Friday to one and all. It’s a cold day taking shape for holiday shoppers as highs again stay in the 30s. I am tracking milder air for the weekend, but wintry changes look to show back up early next week.

Before I look ahead, let me take a look back at a very wintry Thanksgiving.  My twitter feed does all the talking:

Black Friday is still a cold one with moderating temps this weekend. A few showers will be noted late Saturday into Sunday. Colder changes continue to show up on Monday as a strong cold front settles in from the north and northwest. This means a HUGE temp crash is coming to start December. We may be near 60 as the strikes midnight with a 25-30 degree temp drop coming by the afternoon.

Can you find the front on the European Model for early Monday afternoon?


Now THAT is a cold front! The cold air will continue to press to the east as the front slows down. A couple of waves of low pressure will develop along this front and roll toward the northeast. That can bring wintry weather back into the region. The European shows where it thinks wintry precipitation will fall Monday and Tuesday…

That will be something for us to watch closely because the temps tend to show up colder and colder the closer we get. All of this is part of a back and forth pattern I expect for the first half of December, however things are certainly looking colder than even I was thinking. The Canadian Ensembles show the return of a familiar pattern around December 10th…

Make it a great Friday and take care.
