It's cold and still a bit breezy this morning but the winds will continue to ease and today is looking very nice. For the biggest travel day of the year, the Northeast is looking dry and quiet. It will be mostly sunny and very seasonable with temperatures reaching into the low to mid-40's this afternoon.
High pressure will give us a dry day, but our next system is on the way for Thanksgiving and will linger into the start of the weekend. Clouds will be on the increase later tonight with temperatures falling into the 20's. Light spotty moisture will arrive tomorrow morning and with temperatures below freezing at the surface and a bit above freezing aloft a tough of freezing rain/drizzle is likely for the southern valley. There will likely be a few icy spots developing tomorrow morning across western Mass.
Very light spotty rain and snow showers will continue into the afternoon as temperatures reach into the upper 30's, so road conditions should improve. Thursday night, we drop back below freezing with fog, flurries and more patchy freezing drizzle-which again may lead to light icing Black Friday morning. Then similar to Thursday, we warm up during the day Friday with a few scattered rain showers. Same story Saturday too. Things should improve on Sunday with some sunshine but it will be blustery and chilly.
