Thanksgiving was a stunner in Southern New England with highs in the mid 50s in many places under mostly sunny skies. It will stay relatively mild through Black Friday, with lows Thursday night in the mid to upper 30s under mainly clear skies. Friday should be partly sunny, with highs again in the low to mid 50s.
A strong cold front will move through early Saturday. As it passes, there may be a few rain showers, but no heavy rain is anticipated. The temperature will be in the mid 40s around dawn, but that may be the high temperature for the day. A gusty northwest wind will take over and bring in some much colder air by early Sunday morning. The temperature will fall from the 40s to the 30s by late Saturday afternoon, and it will drop into the 20s by dawn Sunday. Skies should be partly cloudy on Saturday.
Sunday looks mostly sunny, but chilly, with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. It will be the coldest day of the season so far. Dry and cool weather will hang around early next week, but signs still point to some unsettled weather in the midweek. A storm will move through from the Mississippi Valley to the Northeast Tuesday into Wednesday. Right now, it looks like we’ll see some cool rain for most of the storm, but it may start and end as a wintry mix inland. The highest likelihood of steady rain is late Tuesday night. More cool weather is likely Wednesday afternoon through Friday after the storm departs.
