Thanksgiving may well be the only respite from an onslaught of cold Canadian air the Wilson Times area will enjoy through the end of November.
Tuesday wake up is forecast to present us with actual temperatures in the upper 20s and, behind northwesterly breezes blowing over 10 mph and gusting, wind chills around 20.
Tuesday’s high will only manage the upper 40s, with wind chills most of the day in the 30s. It should at least be sunny, though.
Overnight Tuesday’s low in the mid-20s is expected to be accompanied by almost calm winds, with the high Wednesday managing the low 50s.
Thanksgiving is forecast to see temperatures moderate to around 60. Clouds will increase in the afternoon, followed by showers overnight as a cold front moves through here. Even though skies will quickly clear, Friday afternoon’s high is expected to stall in the low 50s.
It’s back to the mid-20s overnight Friday followed by highs in the 50- to 55-degree range, with little chance of any rain Saturday through Tuesday.
The next Weathercast posting will be Tuesday, Nov. 30, due to the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
