Chilly weekend but not as windy with lots of sun


With only five days left until Thanksgiving, it looks like the local weather forecast looks pretty nice for the holiday. However, we are paying close attention to a couple storms which could put a monkey wrench into your travel plans depending on when and where you’re headed.

High pressure will continue to serve up dry weather across the area through Sunday afternoon. As it moves east, expect increasing clouds tonight with lows in the 40s around the city, and 30s inland. Highs on Sunday will max out in the upper 50s thanks to a southwest wind. Then a strong cold front will move in from the west bringing rain to the eastern third of the country followed by a chance of lake effect snow in its wake across parts of the Great Lakes region. 

Even though the rain will dampen roads Sunday night into early Monday morning, the main concern will be cold air coupled with strong winds Monday into Tuesday. Whipping winds can also mean travel delays at some airports including Chicago, Detroit, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. 

Winds will be transported to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic early next week. In the meantime, once the cold front passes, temperatures will take a dive bringing the coldest weather so far this season. The morning low at Central Park is slated to dip below freezing next week. 

The silver lining is that weather is expected to remain dry Tuesday through Thursday with diminishing winds and milder temps for the Thanksgiving parade. We are also tracking another system on Friday that’s expected to bring more rain to the region with possible snow north and west of the city.
