Did you know that November is the cloudiest month of the year in Southern New England? It is true and very believable after the past two days. Clouds were fairly stubborn again on Friday, not offering much in the way of sunshine between mid-morning and a nice sunset. Saturday morning will start out mainly clear and cold with lows in the upper 20s to low 30s.
A large area of high pressure is moving from the Great Lakes to New England. That strong weather system will keep it dry and mainly clear to partly cloudy through the weekend. Look for mostly sunny skies on Saturday afternoon. It looks like a great late-fall day, with highs in the upper 40s and a light breeze. It should be a great day to tag a Christmas tree! Skies should stay clear Saturday night, and that will allow for a decent viewing of the Leonid meteor shower in Southern New England. It will be chilly, though, with temps falling into the upper 20s to low 30s by dawn Sunday.
Sunday will be another pretty nice day. We should hang onto the sunshine for most, if not all, of the day. The wind will be a non-factor again, and the highs will be between 46-50. The weather looks quiet for the Patriots-Colts game at Gillette Stadium at 4:25 pm.
Thanksgiving week forecast
The Thanksgiving week forecast is not set in stone, but it appears the stretch of cool, dry weather will continue. The potential fly in the ointment is a large ocean storm that still has the potential to drift farther north and west than most computer models are indicating. Right now, the forecast is for dry weather Monday through Friday. Odds are it will stay that way, but I’m not ready to completely sound the all-clear because of the storm in the Atlantic. If the storm were to drift our way, it would most likely be on Wednesday. Highs next week will be in the 40s to low 50s, and lows will be in the 20s and 30s – close to normal for late-November.
If you’re traveling early in the week, the best, and hopefully only, chance of inclement weather is in the Pacific Northwest as a big storm moves onshore. That storm’s main impact will be felt in Washington and Oregon. Other than that, there’s not much going on nationwide, which means the weather won’t be having an impact on air travel.
