Another cold punch of air hits New England Friday sparking morning snow showers with accumulations for most a coating to an inch, up to two inches in the heaviest targeted hills. Winds will draw in colder temperatures, keeping most places Friday in the 20 degree range with a wind chill, or feels like temperature, in the teens.
The weekend will dawn cold and sunny in the teens, but significant warming will take place thereafter. Temperatures will rise into the thirties Saturday under brisk south wind and increasing clouds. As warmer air comes in Saturday night, there is a good chance of light freezing rain showers, just enough to make the roads slick. Please be careful.
Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday will be far warmer. Temperatures will reach the forties and fifties with variable cloud cover. A sprinkle will be likely Sunday, then morning rain Monday. A few isolated showers will be plausible again Monday night. Next week is looking pretty good. It will start mild, then trend colder toward Thanksgiving. We are watching the potential for a coastal storm to near New England Wednesday into Thanksgiving Day, however at this time there is a 70-80 percent chance of us having a dry and pleasant Thanksgiving Day. Even a few light snow showers Wednesday should not create travel problems, again, as it appears right now.
