Thanksgiving Week Opens Cold…

Highlights:

  • Scattered flurries and snow showers Sunday morning
  • Dry for Thanksgiving travels
  • Rather boring week of weather ahead

November Or December?!  A strong cold front is slipping southeast as we type this forecast Saturday afternoon.  This will result in a much colder close to the day, along with wrap around moisture transitioning to wet snow later this evening across central and northern portions of the state.  Sunday will start off with scattered flurries and snow showers before dry conditions quickly return.  It’ll be an unseasonably cold and blustery day.

As folks begin to travel for the upcoming Thanksgiving Day holiday, high pressure will provide an extended period of dry and rather uneventful conditions.  A dry cold front will pass through the state Tuesday and help reinforce the chill for Thanksgiving, itself.  While we’ll notice gusty breezes at times this upcoming week, precipitation will be hard to come by.

Our next threat of precipitation will arrive this time next week as a cold front moves south.  Expect showers Saturday, followed by a wind shift and coldest air of the season by the second half of next weekend.

Upcoming 7-Day Precipitation Forecast:

  • Snowfall: Trace – Dusting
