Rain moves in for Wednesday; Colder temperatures early next week

Posted 5:50 PM EST Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Mild temperatures and rain will be the headliner for Wednesday. Rain will move in during the morning and pretty much stick around all day. Temperatures tomorrow afternoon will be mild for this time of the year and most locations locally will reach the upper-40s.

I can’t rule out a few claps of thunder in the afternoon but we’re not expecting anything severe. Rain should taper off becoming more scattered and intermittent Wednesday night.

Thanksgiving won’t be rainy all day but we will be socked in with a thick blanket of clouds. There can also be a little light rain/drizzle around from time to time. Overcast and mostly cloudy skies will continue into Friday.

After what appears to be a mild end to November, confidence is increasing that a healthy shot of cold will arrive early next week to kick-start December.

This might just bring the coldest temperatures we’ve had for quite some time. Early model projections indicate that afternoon high temperatures in our area could only make it to the mid-30s for a couple of days.

Model temperature solution from the NWS National Blend of Models (NBoM) indicates cold temperatures will invade early next week.

This has some good support from many of the other major computer models including the American GFS and the European models.

In addition to the cold temperatures, all of the major models show a low pressure system moving into the Great Lakes region during the same timeframe.

Today's latest run of the European model for next Tuesday afternoon. Things will likely change with regards to track and intensity over the next 5 days.

This is too far out to make any kind of forecast with regards to precipitation types and local impacts. And, this is just one run of one model. We have examples of other models showing a similar solution but not exactly the same.

It is something that bears close watching over the next several days. There is a good possibility for impactful snow showers somewhere in Ohio. It’s just way too early to determine where exactly those snow showers may occur. At the very least, this looks like a cold blustery day.

In the meantime, keep up with the forecast if you have any plans after the long holiday weekend or have outdoor work that needs doing. The cold temperatures will be more likely, but snow early next week is also a (uncertain) possibility.
