A more active pattern next week

Good Saturday, folks. Our weekend is off and running with a good looking sky,  but with chilly temps staying with us. This below normal pattern isn’t as cold as what we’ve been seeing, but there’s some indication that pattern may return Thanksgiving week.

Highs today are in the 40-45 degree range with a mix of sun and clouds. The chill eases a bit on Sunday with highs in the upper 40s to near 50. Clouds will be on the increase ahead of our next system.

The system coming in here early next week continues to look fairly weak, but can produce a rain or snow shower. This is just getting into the range of the NAM and it shows what I’m talking about Monday into Monday evening:

Again, this system doesn’t look like a big deal, but could be a precursor to a bigger event by the end of next week:

I mentioned how Thanksgiving week is looking colder and colder. The GFS Ensembles show one heck of a deep trough through the end of the month:

The temp anomalies have a crazy cold look considering how much smoothing goes into the maps from this far out:

Have a happy Saturday and take care.
