Quiet Thanksgiving weather, colder this weekend

The quiet and cool weather pattern in Southern New England will hold for a few more days. It’s been several consecutive days of cold nights, cool afternoons, nice sunrises/sunsets, and more clouds on the Cape than the rest of Southern New England. Wednesday looks no different, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. If you’re heading out to meet some old friends on Wednesday evening, you can expect it to be dry and cool, with temperatures falling through the 40s.

Thanksgiving day should be decent. There may be some clouds in the morning, but it will be dry and seasonably cool. The temperature for the high school football games and various road races should be in the low to mid 40s. There will be a 10-20 mph northeast breeze near the coast, but a lighter wind inland. The afternoon looks nicer, with more sunshine and highs in the low 50s. The shopping weather late Thursday night through Friday will be decent, with the temperature dipping into the 30s late Thursday night before rebounding into the low to mid 50s on Friday afternoon. Overall, Friday looks like the nicest of the next seven days.

A strong cold front will move through early Saturday. It will be briefly mild Saturday morning, with the temperature holding in the upper 40s, but sharply colder air will arrive on a gusty northwesterly wind late Saturday afternoon into Sunday. The temperature will fall into the 20s by dawn Sunday, and the wind chill will be in the teens. Sunday afternoon will be dry, brisk, and cold, with the high temperature struggling to reach 40 degrees. Next week should start out with some chilly, dry weather, but a midweek storm may bring a wintry mix then rain Tuesday and/or Wednesday.
