First things first this morning, Happy Thanksgiving. I hope this is a day you enjoy with friends, family or even alone. There are so few days we get to actually take a break from the hubbub of the world, I hope this is one of them for you.

Our weather isn’t great, but it’s not that bad either. Precipitation is not a problem early this morning. There may be some mist or flakes in the air, but it’s basically dry. Notice on the loop below showing blue and green, that’s some drizzle and light snow moving in later today and this evening. I expect any accumulation to be light, but roads inland could become a bit slick as the sun sets tonight.

After a dry morning, some snow and drizzle will move in this afternoon and overnight

The rest of the this weekend remains not only unsettled, but a bit of a forecast challenge. Tomorrow we are between today’s weather system and a new one for late Friday night and Saturday. This time a storm will form off the New England coastline and with it a period of rain. The highest likelihood of rain is Friday night and Saturday morning and then the rain chance lowers in the afternoon. I am not expecting a lot of rainfall, but areas closest to the coast could see upwards of a quarter to three quarters of an inch of rainfall.
Total moisture over the next three days will not be very heavy.

Rainfall this month has been significantly below average, leading us deeper into the drought and I remain concerned about what this could mean for the coming spring, but lets see how the winter turns out first.

On Sunday the storm will move into the Gulf of Maine and beyond. Clouds will linger, but that’s about it.

Things turn quiet next week for a few days with a warming trend. Enjoy the holiday.
