High pressure briefly builds south of the region with another breezy and cold day


Today’s Weather Synopsis…

High pressure will gradually build into the region later today into tonight, keeping it rather chilly and dry with lake effect snow ending in western areas this morning. High pressure will slide offshore into the weekend with a developing return flow allowing for some milder air to filter into the region through early next week.

As the jet stream shifts northward, a warm front will bring some light mixed precipitation late Saturday night with the arrival of a warmer air mass. The region will then be in the warm sector through Monday before a storm system and associated cold front bring a chance of rain and clears the region by Monday night. Cooler air will gradually return to the region in the wake of the front by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week with some models now hinting at a potential coastal storm developing just prior to Thanksgiving.
