Weather: Cold and snowy then frigid (11/20/2018)

Planner for Wednesday November 21 2018

Tuesday night, snow showers end but you’ll still have to be careful of spots of snow & ice. Lows will be dropping into the 20s, wind chills will be around 10° in the morning.

Wednesday, it won’t be snowing everywhere or all the time but scattered snow showers and even a few squalls will be around. Snow squalls are quick bursts of snow that drop visibility and cover roads, those under the squalls will get less than 3″. The best chance for them in New York will be in the mid to late morning, the best chance in Vermont & New Hampshire will be in the afternoon. If you leave by 10am you will probably make it out in time. If you’ve got people coming into town and are expecting them during the afternoon, they may be delayed.

Meanwhile, it’ll stay cold enough for everything that falls Wednesday to remain snow, highs will be in the 20s to near 30°. Wednesday night, snow ends and it gets windy and cold. Lows Thursday morning will be around 5-10° but northwest winds gusting near 30mph will put wind chills around -15° to -5°! The rest of Thanksgiving remains very cold! Expect partly to mostly sunny skies with highs in the teens to around 20°. 19° is the coldest the high has ever been on Thanksgiving in Burlington. Currently, our forecast high is 17° and the wind will make it feel much colder than that all day. I hope you have a warm place to stay and eat.

Friday will be mostly sunny, less windy and a little less cold. Expect highs in the mid 20s. Saturday looks good by January standards. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny with highs in the mid 30s. Rain and snow showers return Saturday night through Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon looks dry before another couple messy hits Monday & Tuesday.

Have a great week!
