Good morning: Sunny to end of week; snow this weekend

It’s another nice cold, clear day in the works today, with the forecasters foreseeing sun, sun, sun through Friday. It may get even a bit milder, into the high forties today, Thursday and Friday, before a storm moves into Vermont on Saturday, bringing a snow and rain mix, with highs in the mid-thirties over the weekend.

The forecast discussion from the Fairbanks Museum:

High pressure has been controlling our weather for days and days – an oddity in November. The high is centered on the Canadian province of Newfoundland. While this seems a long way away, a strong ridge extends south and west to our area. This ridge will today shield our region from precipitation and pemit a lot of sunshine.

Not much changes through the rest of the work week, so Thanksgiving should feature fine weather. Friday night a strong cold front will sweep in from Canada as the high moves over the North Atlantic. This will introduce a fresh batch of cold air to us, which will support a few snow showers. Chilly northwest flow will keep a few snow showers going through the weekend, especially over the higher terrain.

So get ready for Turkey Day!
