Nice Thanksgiving, Then A Significant Cool Down

November 20th, 2012 at 11:17 am by under Weather

Thanksgiving warm up is followed by temperatures which will be about 20 degrees colder.

Thanksgiving will bring with it some warmth that we haven’t seen for almost 40 years. Temperatures will soar into the lower and middle 60s. The last time we saw 60s on Turkey Day was back in 1972 on November 22nd when the high reached 63 degrees.

Gusty winds through Thanksgiving

This warm up will also bring with it what we call a tight gradient. In other words, the changes in pressure to create this fast warm up will cause gusty winds up to about 40 mph. These winds will continue even into Friday as temperatures will take a major plunge and lower pressure will begin to enter the area. This massive change in pressure will keep gusty winds around through Friday afternoon and evening.

Temperatures will be almost 20 degrees cooler over the weekend

It won’t be a long warm up as an arctic front moves in by afternoon on Friday creating gusty winds and very quick temperature falls. In fact, highs will drop into the upper 20′s and lower 30′s by late Friday.

Temperatures will soar into the 60′s but cooler air is close behind
