November 23rd, 2013 Forecast

Light showers will persist tonight into the early part of the overnight before clouds begin to break.  Lows in the upper 30's to lower 40's will give the area a "raw" feeling as winds will be out of the west, shifting to the northwest at 5 to 15 mph.  Tomorrow will be partly sunny for most of the day.  Some areas to the north and west could see another round of light rain and snow showers late Saturday, but not a deal breaker for any events you might have.  Highs tomorrow will generally range in the mid- to upper 40's, with some locales to the south and east getting into the lower 50's.  Enjoy that while it lasts.  Winds will also begin to pick up tomorrow as well, with winds from the northwest at 5 to 15 mph gusting to 25 mph.

By Sunday, the cold front will have marched through and we'll be left with an arctic blast.  High temperatures are only forecasted in the mid-30's, but with the wind chill, it'll feel like the 20's all day.  Lows will bottom out in the lower 20's as well.  By the start of the next workweek, temperatures will still be down in the mid-30's for highs and upper 20's for lows with a brisk wind out of the west-northwest.  Tuesday will feel warmer but the downside is a possible nor'easter.  Skies will remain mostly cloudy.  At this point, weather models keep waffling back and forth but at possibility of seeing at least some sort of rain is there.

With lows in the lower 30's on Tuesday night, we could also see some mixing as well.  We'll have to keep an eye on it for now, but by next week we'll have a better idea of it's track, timing and type of precipitation.  Scattered showers are also possible on Wednesday with highs in the mid-40's and lows in the lower 30's.  Midweek next week could be slick, so you may want to break out that bag of ice some of you have had for the last two winters.  Thursday will be slightly cooler, with partly cloudy skies and highs around 40-degrees and by next Friday we'll have highs back into the mid-40's.

Stay tuned for out forecasts over the next couple of days as the outlook for Tuesday and Wednesday gets a little more refined.
