First Warning Forecast

Staying cold with drier weather through Travel Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

We stay frigid overnight with temperatures ranging in the 20s along with a northwest wind of 10-15 mph and gusts to 30! This will keep wind chills in the teens for most in the valley to single digits across the hills through morning! 

Snow showers and flurries are still possible through the overnight, especially in the mountains. Overall, the wet weather will be winding down, but we stay blustery and frigid for Tuesday. Breaks of sunshine will mix in with patchy clouds through the day and our high temps only reach the 30s to near 40. Wind chills will stay in the teens and 20s much of the day!

Strong low pressure continues to move away to the northeast Tuesday, so a gradual lightening of the wind is expected. High pressure builds in briefly Tuesday night through Wednesday night, which will bring quiet, but cold weather to our area. We are looking dry and sunny for travel Wednesday across the East and Northeast, but our next system will move in by Thanksgiving morning. Temperatures plummet Wednesday night, but start to rise early Thursday. We stay below freezing as wet weather moves in, so a light, wintry or icy mix is expected.

Thanksgiving will begin with light freezing rain and or drizzle, which may lead to tricky travel. The good news is that we aren’t expecting much precip. A few rain and snow showers are possible in the afternoon with highs in the upper 30s. A few rain and/or snow showers will linger on and off Friday, but we won’t see a washout of any kind for those shoppers! Saturday gets blustery as low pressure strengthens offshore and again, a few rain and snow showers are still possible. We get more sunshine, but stay chilly Sunday into Monday.
