Weather: Two quick rounds of pre-Thanksgiving snow (11/20 AM)

Tuesday November 20th Snowfall

Good morning!

Snow kicks off the day Tuesday over southern Vermont and central/southern New Hampshire with 3-6″ of new snow freshening up that existing pack. By mid-morning, light snow fills in over northern New York and northern Vermont as a low to north moves in and phases with the existing low over southern New England. Here, however, we only pick up a dusting to 1-2″.

Still, whether it’s a little or a lot, slick travel conditions exist. This afternoon, widespread snow tapers to showers. Low 30s. Light north wind. Tonight, mostly cloudy. Upper teens to low 20s.

Wednesday gets started on a quiet note, under a cloudy sky, but by the afternoon an approaching Arctic cold front brings an increasing north wind and scattered snow showers. There’s even the potential for an isolated squall or two that could dramatically change road conditions and visibility if you plan to be out driving around. Upper 20s. That snow will wind down Wednesday night, but the temp plummets, dropping to the single digits on either side of zero with a howling northwest wind by Thursday morning.

Thanksgiving Thursday, as you may have heard, could be one of the coldest, if not the coldest, on record. Temps sit in the teens by the afternoon with a wind chill near or below zero. Thursday night, the temp falls into the single digits on either side of zero again. Partly sunny Thursday, mostly sunny Friday. Black Friday, we rebound into the low to mid 20s with little to no wind.

By the weekend, a dramatic warm-up commences, with the temp jumping into the mid 30s to low 40s. Rain then likely follows Sunday and Monday.

Have a fantastic day! Safe travels!
