Here comes a weekend cold blast

Good Thursday, everyone. The heavy rain and high winds of Wednesday have pushed off to our east. Now we get some decent weather for a few days, but don’t get used to it. The coldest air of the fall season is on the way for the weekend.

Highs Thursday will reach the mid- and upper 50s in many areas with partly sunny skies. Winds will still be gusty as another weak front moves in. It will knock temps down into the low 30s by Friday morning. Afternoon highs will hit the upper 40s to low 50s.

Saturday finds a strong, winter looking, system diving in here. Temps will spike into the upper 40s to low 50s ahead of this front, then drop quickly into the 30s as the front sweeps through. Winds will be very gusty during the big drop.

Several models continue to indicate the potential for a band of rain and snow showers working in behind the boundary:

I have no changes on my Saturday thoughts. A strong cold front dives in from the northwest with a band of rain and snow showers along and behind it:

Temps continue to tank Saturday evening as a strong northwesterly wind kicks in. Throw in the wind and lows near 20, you can get some very cold wind chills showing up late Saturday night:

GFS TempsHighs Sunday will be in the mid- and upper 30s with a mix of sun and clouds, and with morning flurries possible.

Temps stay seasonally cold early next week, with mainly dry weather. That should change as we get into the Thanksgiving weekend with another storm system affecting our region.

Make it a great day and take care.
