Forecast: Cold, Windy Days Ahead

While temperatures are going to be colder than we might typically see during the second half of November, it’s the wind you will notice through Thursday. As our storm system from yesterday continues to howl across eastern Canada it’s pulling down a bit of arctic air on gusty northwesterly winds. This is going to make the highs in the 30s feel a lot colder today and tomorrow.

Clear skies and dry roads will hopefully make the commutes a bit easier than yesterday when all the rain doubled travel times in some cases. The tranquil weather will be with us at least into the weekend.

Temperatures are going to be cold each morning the rest of the week and you will want to dress appropriately especially if you are waiting outside for a bus or the T.

High pressure builds in from Canada the next several days bringing it with it the coldest air of the fall. Winds will make it feel like it’s in the teens in the early morning and 20s during the afternoon. A slightly less cold day for Thursday will be followed by two more cold days on Friday and Saturday, but each will have plenty of sunshine.

A mild flow of air begins on Sunday when highs reach back into the upper 40s and lower 50s. We could see some 60 degree readings or higher for a day or two early next week.

Thanksgiving day is still looking dry and somewhat typical temperature-wise for late November.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny, blustery and cold. Highs in the mid to upper 30s (colder in the hillier terrain).

Tuesday night: Clear and unseasonably cold with lows of 20 to 25.

Wednesday: Sunny with winds still brisk. Highs of 30 to 35.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and not as cold but still breezy. Highs of 40 to 45.

Friday: Sunny with highs in the upper 30s.

Saturday: Sunny with highs of 35 to 39.
