We made it to the weekend on the heels of an early season cold blast. Temperatures early Saturday morning will be near or even breaking records across most locations as many wake up in the low to mid 20s with calm winds and clear skies above. High temperatures slowly rebound Saturday afternoon into the mid to upper 40s as high pressure settles in and southerly flow begins.
Saturday night brings less of a chill as southerly breezes continue to blow with lows in the 30s. Warmer conditions arrive Sunday as the high pressure system sits of the coast with highs in the mid to upper 50s before jumping 60 degrees come Veterans Monday.
Big changes though follow this mini warm-up with another powerful cold frontal boundary rolling our way by the middle of next week. The front arrives Tuesday with rain in the morning hours and high temperatures close to 50 degrees. Those temperatures though will quickly fall as the front passes through changing any rain over to wet snow. Accumulations look unlikely though based upon the timing of the front, cold air source, and overall placement of the low.
Once again instead of snow talk it will be all about cold talk. Highs on Wednesday will be in the low to mid 30s with wind chills in the 20s throughout the day. Overnight lows will bottom back into the teens and 20s before a slow rebound Thursday out ahead of our next storms system. Rain again Friday with highs back around 50 degrees.
Long range trends continue to show above average cold and precipitation heading into the end of November with Thanksgiving on the horizon.
