No Turkeys

After Sunday's cold, blustery, flurry-fest, there are no Turkeys in this forecast for the rest of this week. Two dry fronts blow through: 1) Tuesday night and 2) Saturday night. Temperatures moderate gradually today and Tuesday. Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day are a bit cooler. Friday and Saturday have a brief rebound ahead of another cold blast arriving next Sunday.

Forecast Discussion

There's no reason to belabor this forecast discussion. Quick and simple. Two dry, Canadian fronts arrive in the next seven days. The second packs a cold punch similar to yesterday.

After a cold start to the day, Monday afternoon brings lighter winds and moderating temperatures. That moderation continues through the daytime Tuesday.

Front #1 arrives Tuesday night making Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day cooler but not bitterly cold. We have a barely worth mentioning threat of a stray, light shower Tuesday night with the frontal passage. Friday and Saturday are milder, seasonally pleasant temperatures.

The stronger front #2 arrives Saturday night leading to a cold, blustery Sunday. A snow flurry is not impossible late Saturday and early Sunday--curiosity-level only.
