Good Morning: Sun giving way to clouds, rain and snow

Happy post-Turkey Day – I hope you had a wonderful time with family and friends on a perfect weather Thanksgiving. If you are a Jets fan, you probably wish you went to bed after pie and didn’t stay up after the first quarter, but for Patriots faithful, it sure was nice to have that game end the day.

Today is looking sunny and warm (52-54 degrees) to start, with clouds moving in this afternoon and leading to rain and then snow flurries tonight, with the temperature just dipping under the freezing mark.

Extended Forecast:

Saturday Nt: Mostly cloudy, breezy, scattered, mainly hilltop snow showers. Lows 18-22.
Sunday: Partly sunny, windy. Widely scattered snow showers. Highs 25-30.
Sunday Nt: Partly cloudy. Isolated flurries. Lows in the 10s.
Monday: Partly sunny. Highs 30-35.
Monday Nt: Mostly cloudy, flurries possible. Lows 18-23.
Tuesday:  Mostly cloudy. Chance for mixed precipitation. Highs 35-39.

Forecast Discussion:
The long-dominant HIGH pressure ridge is beginning to break down, and our nearly 10-day stretch of partly to mostly clear, and comfortable November weather will come to an end.  A cold front stretching from LOW pressure over eastern Ontario southward through the Ohio Valley this morning will sweep east to the Adirondacks by early tonight, then across Vermont during the mid-late night hours, preceded by scattered rain showers, and followed by scattered rain and snow showers. Snow showers will continue into Saturday evening as progressively colder air invades the region and a mid-level trough swings through.
