Mild weather returns to Southern New England for the end of the workweek and start of the weekend. The temperature will be above 50 on both Friday and Saturday. A few showers are possible Friday as the mild air returns.
The weekend before Thanksgiving looks dry and gradually colder. Expect a high near 50 on Saturday, and it will be in the 40s on Sunday as high pressure moves overhead. A front passing through on Monday will likely bring some showers. An early projection for rain totals is approximately 0.25-0.5″.
Dry weather returns on Tuesday into Wednesday before another system may bring more rain late Wednesday into early Thanksgiving morning. The timing on that system may shift by 12 hours or so in the next week. It’s early, but it looks like it has the potential to bring steady rain in a 12-18 hour timeframe. At this point, any wintry precipitation is highly unlikely.
The long-range outlook for the end of next week into until December 1 is for near to slightly above normal precipitation and above normal temperatures. There are no strong signs for snow anytime soon, but we’re getting into the part of year where it can snow if a storm takes the right track, even in a prevailing warm weather pattern.
