Well looks like a fine holiday week is shaping up here for Connecticut. While there will be no rain to speak of until Saturday the holiday week will feature some clouds. Along with those clouds will be seasonable temperatures through Thanksgiving. Believe it or not the mid-west will actually be warmer on Thanksgiving than we will be. The Midwest will have temperatures soar into the 60’s. However for us that warmth will greatly be reduced. When the warmth gets to use on Friday it will be reduced to mid and upper 50’s.

By Saturday a powerful cold front will barrel towards Connecticut early in the day. It is quite possible we will easily see the coldest air of the season. This cold air will be accompanied by a gusty wind a band of showers that could mix and change over to a brief period of snow showers. Though the weather forecasts call for low 40’s for Saturday and Sunday, I think these temperatures are too high given the cold air mass. After Saturday the cold will stick around until Monday.

What is interesting to note is that a huge area of artic air will slowly push southward into the Midwest early next week. This air will be brutal cold with area in the Midwest not seeing highs in the 20’s. We have to keep an eye out as this cold air will slowly move eastward or more so (south and east). It is starting to look more likely this cold air will aim for Connecticut, though it will be less intense as in the Midwest.  It is too early to say how cold we will get but it looks like colder air is eyeing Connecticut.
