Today will be much like yesterday with sunshine, just a few clouds at times, and that persistent breeze. It won’t be quite as gusty as yesterday, but the winds will still be noticeable. Highs today will be in the mid to upper 40s. Tonight will be clear and cold with the winds finally relaxing. After a sunny start, the next area of low pressure begins to push clouds over the state by tomorrow afternoon. This system will bring stray showers for Thanksgiving, mainly during the morning hours. Rainfall will be generally light, averaging around a tenth of an inch or less on Thursday. Travelers beware though: northern PA could see some sleet and/or freezing drizzle early Thursday morning so use caution if heading north at that time! Another weak system could bring a couple of passing showers for Black Friday evening, before winds return for Saturday and Sunday. Overall, it appears the region will have more unsettled and active weather as November winds down, however, most of these systems over the next week do not appear to bring significant amounts of rain or snow with near average to cooler than average temperatures.
Even though the northwesterly winds will return for the holiday weekend, the wind will not be as strong as what we just experienced over the last few days. The extended outlook for next week shows a quiet start Monday, with rain chances possible Tuesday and again by next Thursday.
