Good Thursday and happy Thanksgiving. The weather out there is looking absolutely gorgeous for traveling or for those backyard football games. As a matter of fact, the overall pattern looks nice through the rest of the holiday weekend.
The only real drawback will be the wind-chill numbers Thursday morning and Friday morning. Dress warmly:
Highs Thursday are in the mid 40s for much of the region, with a mix of sun and clouds. Overall, this looks really good.
Holiday shoppers will find some nice weather, with temps in the upper 20s in the morning and 50s in the afternoon.
Gusty winds will be around for the weekend as a cold front moves in Saturday. Highs should reach the upper 40s and low 50s before chilly air pours in for Sunday.
Looking further down the road, the new long-range European ensembles are in, and they match the analog years and my thoughts on a front-loaded winter. Check out the colder-than-normal look through the first few days of January:
Snowfall from that same model for the same period:
It’s interesting to note some of the new runs of the CFS are doing a turnaround and look very similar to the European model for the same time:
That same model run for the five-day period around Christmas is cold:
