Temperatures drop into the mid-30s tonight, winds are calm, and skies are partly cloudy. First, a warm front will approach from our southwest late Saturday morning into Saturday afternoon.
We are tracking rain chances for the weekend as a cold front is set to move in but most of the weekend will be dry. The front will clear the beaches by the afternoon, with increasing wind and cool temperatures as the skies clear. Expect a cooler day too, with highs in the upper 40s. Expect temperatures to be in the upper 20s to mid-30s during numerous morning football games and nearing only 40 in the afternoon. After the warm front lifts off to our north, a milder surge of air will try to build in but it won't be able to do much with our temperatures as all the clouds and rain will prevent the numbers from really taking off.
Skies clear in the evening and temps drop. Highs fall back to the 40s for the busiest travel day of the year. Highs in the mid to upper 40s.
On Sunday, during the day it will be partly sunny, with a high near 47.
Salvation Army Christmas kettle campaign starts
Parents are able to "shop" for their child's gift, and also receive a food box with the ingredients for a Christmas dinner. Last year the Thunder Bay Salvation Army raised $220,000 and hope to raise $200,000 again this year.
The breezy conditions for Monday and only adds to the cold feel.
Sunday: Morning showers, then developing clearing. That's in stark contrast to yesterday's run that indicated a low end rain chance Wednesday and Thanksgiving. High temps will climb into the low 60s Tuesday and Wednesday, and upper 50s and lower 60s for Thanksgiving. Black Friday also looks dry with slightly warmer temperatures!
The weather service is calling for a low of 33 to 34 degrees in Sussex, Morris and Warren counties overnight Saturday, which would be cold enough to produce snowflakes, especially in higher elevations.
