Quiet weather for Thanksgiving week

It was nice to see plenty of sunshine on Saturday as a large area of high pressure slowly moved east from the Great Lakes to Quebec. That strong high will be sprawled over New England tomorrow, bringing more sunshine and seasonably cool weather.

Skies will be clear to mainly clear for the Leonid meteor shower Saturday night. It will be chilly, with lows in the 20s to low 30s. The wind will be light. Sunday looks nice, with a lot of sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 40s. The breeze will be lighter than it was on Saturday. The weather looks great for tailgaters and football at Gillette Stadium.

Storm stays out to sea

A storm will continue to develop off the Southeast U.S. coast on Sunday. It looks like the storm will stay harmlessly out to sea next week, but it is worth monitoring because of its size and intensity. If it it drifted a little farther northwest than currently forecast, than there could be some rain/wind in coastal Southern New England on Wednesday. Right now, the odds of that are pretty low, and we should see more dry weather with the temperature gradually getting a bit milder as we get closer to Thanksgiving. Highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s Monday through Friday.

Monday and Tuesday will be partly cloudy. Wednesday looks mostly cloudy, then it’s back to more sunshine on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Overnight low temperatures will be in the 20s to low 30s early in the week, and low to mid 30s Thursday and Friday.

Cold shot to end November

Looking all the way ahead to next weekend, a cold front will move through late Friday or Saturday bringing another shot of chilly weather to Southern New England. So far, the month of November has averaged 2 degrees below normal at TF Green Airport, and it is possible that this month will be the coolest (relative to normal) since January, 2011.
