Chill, some rain returns for Black Friday


New Yorkers were treated to an unseasonably mild Thanksgiving as temperatures rose into the upper 50s and low 60s across the five boroughs on Thursday. Some sun was seen as well, as a high pressure system parked itself just off to our north.

We are expecting some changes over the next 24 hours as a cold front moves in our direction. No large amounts of rain are expected, but a few showers will be seen Thursday night through early Friday morning.

Skies will begin clearing out once the rain moves through, but temperatures will then take a tumble and the winds will increase as well. Friday’s afternoon temperatures will only be in the 40s, and wind gusts could exceed 30 mph in some locations. Put those temperatures and winds together and it’s going to feel like the teens and 20s out there. 

In addition to the brisk and breezy conditions, there is the possibly of seeing a few snowflakes between Friday and Sunday. One of our forecast models are hinting at a snow shower or two Friday afternoon, and another model shows some of the white stuff falling late Sunday morning into early afternoon. One thing to note though is that temperatures are expected to be in the 40s when (or if) that snow falls, so, little if any accumulation is expected. 

As we return from the holiday weekend on Monday (or Tuesday for some), look for a mix of sun and clouds with afternoon temperatures in the low 40s.
