We are definitely heading in the right direction after a very cold Thanksgiving day, as afternoon highs climbed into the 30s.  We’ll get an even stronger push by Saturday, which will likely be the warmest I see for the next couple of weeks.

That push comes with a warm front that will glide across the area overnight into Saturday morning.  Surface winds out of the south running over the cold, and in some places snow-covered ground, may create some patchy fog.

Skies will then become partly sunny that day with highs topping out around 50 degrees.  Temperatures will remain mild that night with lower 40s expected.

By Sunday morning, a cold but dry front will arrive sending temperatures in the 30s as a breezy wind will make it even chiller.  This will promise a very cold start to the new work week with daytime highs just over the 20 degree mark before temperatures climb back in the 30s for the rest of the week.

Next chance for moisture may be in the form of a cold rain or mix Wednesday night going into Thursday.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!!!
