Good Tuesday, folks. Our long Thanksgiving holiday weekend is just about to kick off, and we are tracking two cold shots. These blasts of chill look to bookend the big weekend, but will they bring any kind of precipitation? Let’s get after it and find out.
Highs Tuesday reach the low 50s on a gusty wind from the southwest. This is ahead of our first cold front, arriving later Tuesday night. This front might touch off a light shower, with a snowflake mixing in, across the north:
Temps take a dive behind the front and are back in the 20s by Wednesday morning. Highs on the busy travel day will be way below normal: upper 30s and low 40s:
Thanksgiving Day is very cold to start, with temps deep into the 20s. Afternoon highs reach the 40s with mainly sunny skies.
Black Friday looks windy, with lows in the upper 20s in the morning and highs of 45 to 50 in the afternoon. Clouds will increase ahead of our next cold front, which arrives Saturday. This front will bring a gusty line of rain with it:
Once again, temps tumble behind the front on a strong northwesterly wind. The GFS gets those winds in good shape to deliver some snow showers and flurries from Lake Michigan on Sunday:
That’s a darn cold air mass showing up in the eastern part of the country late this weekend and early next week:
Make it a great Tuesday and take care.
