Good morning! Happy Thanksgiving!
Fairly quiet weather highlights your Turkey Day forecast, and Black Friday, too. Although the day kicks off mostly cloudy with upslope snow showers along the western slope of the Green Mountains, skies will gradually clear a tad. It becomes partly sunny heading into the afternoon with a chilly top temp in the low to mid 30s. Light northwest wind, shifting to out of the south 5-10 mph.
This evening, clouds roll back in and most spots are partly to mostly cloudy by early Friday. A band of lake-effect snow will stretch from Lake Ontario through the heart of the Adirondacks, and may reach as far as western Vermont. Very minimal accumulation is anticipated, but roads could be slick first thing Friday for early bird shoppers. Low temp, upper to mid 20s.
Friday, becoming partly sunny again. It’s another pretty tranquil day with a partly sunny sky and a light south breeze. It is a tad warmer though, low to mid 40s.
This weekend, we find ourselves sandwiched between two lows, one to the north and one to south. That means we miss out on the bulk of any precip, but we’re not entirely dry either. There will be some scattered rain showers on Saturday, even up to the mountain peaks, with a high temp in the upper 30s to mid and upper 40s. Sunday, however, cold air surges back in with scattered snow showers finishing the weekend. A flash freeze is possible Saturday night, so anticipate some slippery travel early Sunday.
Wishing you a wonderful, warm holiday with a full heart and a full belly!
