Gray Holiday Weekend Ahead?

A weak storm ripples by in the jet stream on Turkey Day, and it should just be enough to sprout a few rain and snow showers

    Tuesday: More sunshine than clouds, mountain flurries, highs near 40. West wind 15 mph. Tuesday night: Mostly clear, low in the 20s to low 30s. Wednesday: Sunshine, high in the 40s south, 30s north. (Published Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2016)

    Winter chill this morning as temps start out in the 20s and 30s. Cold winds will blow all day, but our highs should still make it to 40 or better in Southern New England.

    In the snow-caked parts of Western and Northern New England, we’re only in the 30s. So now that we're unofficially in “winter,” you'd expect there's no looking back now, right? Hang on. It's not MID-winter.

    This was just a freakish event that brought in the cold. And just as quickly as it moved in, it could move out. But that will take time. Gusty winds will be slow to ease in the next two days adding to the chill and staying near 40 mph today and 15-20 mph on Wednesday.

    The focus remains on the holiday weekend, however, and although Thanksgiving looks gray and a bit iffy, I'm not seeing a lot of travel headaches at this point.

    A weak storm ripples by in the jet stream on Turkey Day, and it should just be enough to sprout a few rain and snow showers. Some spots could come away with a coating, while others just see a few fleeting showers/snow showers.

    Saturday has our attention though. A stronger storm may move off Nantucket and wrap some snow in Maine. Issues? We have a few. The temps look marginal at this point, and the track remains uncertain (what else is new?).

    Plenty of time to sort out the details. You just focus on the feast.
