Wednesday November 22

The good news is that a nearby storm is moving off of the coast leaving quiet weather for most of our travels. The reality is that strong winds will be cranking up to bring in very cold air. So if you are driving this afternoon you might have to hold on to the wheel with both hands tightly. If you are waking up early for a nearby Turkey Trot race, temperatures will be very cold so bundle up. Then we set our sights on the next cold surge this weekend that could bring flurries Sunday.

Looking Ahead

The weather will be cold and quiet for the rest of Thanksgiving and Friday. The next cold front will arrive  over the weekend and likely will have a dry passage. Colder winds will move in again with the chance of flurries Sunday.
