Mike Linden's Forecast | Cooler than normal temperatures take over
Thanksgiving is quickly approaching but so is Winter...even though it already feels a whole lot like it.
Normal daytime highs for this time of year are right around the low 50s but cold air from the north is keeping a low ceiling on any warming throughout NEPA. For the next several days we'll get close to the 50° mark but I don't expect a widespread warming for the week ahead. We'll get close on Thursday but will likely fall short in the upper 40s. Most of this week will be spent in the upper 40s.
The next chance for active weather is Wednesday with the possibility of a few passing showers late in the evening into Thursday. Beyond Wednesday/Thursday, Friday into and throughout Saturday has the biggest mess potential for the week ahead. We're more likely to take a direct hit from a frontal system this weekend as overcast skies and rain takes over. If you have any leaves to clean up I'd aim to have those cleaned up before the weekend arrives.
Behind the passing front, Arctic air returns and takes daytime highs back into the upper 30s for the week of Thanksgiving.
Also...there is some potential for snowfall the week of Thanksgiving and even the potential for snowfall on the holiday itself. We're still more than a week out but watch this space...
