Mainly clear skies and calming winds will make it a chilly evening. Temperatures only warmed to the low 30s and will fall quickly to the 20’s. You will need plenty of layers if you are heading to tonight’s game of the week between Daniel Boone at Cocalico.
Plenty of sunshine to start but as the high slides east, clouds will start to drift in and thicken as the late afternoon wears on. Highs should be able to get to the low 40s despite the colder morning thanks to a south-southwesterly breeze. Clouds thicken up especially by the evening and that will keep temperatures from dropping too much in the evening.
The next system arrives Sunday along with milder temperatures. Temperatures will climb to the low 50s for the second half of the weekend which is closer to average and we are hitting low 60’s by Monday. Rain will hold off until the early evening Sunday so plenty of dry hours to run around and get ready for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Few showers still possible Monday with the passage of the cold front late evening. It turns colder as a secondary disturbance along with a deepening trough swings in allowing colder air to spill back into the area. Tuesday we manage the low 50’s but by Wednesday and Thursday we are much colder in the 40’s. Wednesday the models are showing a coastal low riding up towards New England. Two of the models keep it off shore with no impact to us but a third as it more inland and shows a threat for rain or snow showers so we’ll be watching the evolution of the modeling in the upcoming days since Wednesday is one of the busiest travel days of the year.
THANKSGIVING DAY HOLIDAY
It will be cold but dry for the holiday as the trough pivots east producing another day with below average temperatures in the lower 40’s. The trough starts to lift out Friday and that will help to moderate temperatures a bit into the mid 40s under increasing clouds. The next system looks to arrive Friday night into Saturday.
