Strong high pressure centered over the central portion of New England remains firmly in control of our weather. In fact, over the next 3-4 days, high pressure will effectively shield the region from any significant weather systems. The only proverbial’ fly in the ointment’ is for some mid and high level cloud cover tonight and tomorrow as a weakening cold front approaches from the west. While clouds may have the upper hand at times tonight and tomorrow, we’ll still manage to have some limited sun along with seasonably mild temperatures.
The great weather is forecast to persist through the Thanksgiving Day holiday as drier air allows for sunshine to re-gain the upper hand. The weather will remain largely mild and dry through the big shopping day, Black Friday, as highs reach well into the 50s. While a small chance for showers is evident on the planning forecast Friday, indications are that chances will be slim and even if showers were to occur, they look to fall toward evening.
Finally a change in our weather is slated for the weekend as a strong cold front moves through Friday, the reason for the small threat for showers as noted above, and sets the stage for a sharp drop in temperature Saturday and Sunday. In fact, we’ll have to include the threat for snow showers this weekend as temperatures struggle to reach 40° for daily highs.
