Today will feature a mix of sun and clouds across the region with sun taking over a larger share of the sky. Temps will be the coldest they’ve been all week (and all season) today with highs across the entire state of Maine unlikely to break freezing. Everyone else sees 30’s with the possible exception of the Cape and Islands who likely break 40. Winds will be gusty out of the NW today and will lead to ‘feels like’ temps in the teens to lower 20’s.
Looking ahead, we have a reasonably quiet weekend and start to the week to look forward to with some rain likely Monday but otherwise quiet and warm. Highs during this period (Sunday through Wednesday) will be unseasonably warm with highs in the 50’s to near 60. Sadly for warm lovers, all good things must come to an end and Thanksgiving looks to be the day that happens.
We have an interesting setup for Thanksgiving including a stalled frontal boundary, 500mb energy, and another cold shot lined up for just after Thanksgiving. I’ll get into more details this weekend, but if you read my blog carefully and follow me on Twitter, you’ll know if you have the ingredients I mentioned above, you have the potential for a storm. I’ll keep you updated throughout the week (updates may be a tad later next week due to my being on vacation) and as of now, the threat looks minimal. This is just something to keep in the back of your mind as you prepare for the long weekend.
