As Americans begin their Thanksgiving travel this weekend, the Shore area will mark the start of the holiday season with colder, breezier weather.
After a warm fall that saw temperatures reach into the 70s during November, more seasonal weather will move in – to the chagrin of some and the delight of others. Thursday, with a high of 69 degrees, will be the last mild day for at least a week, according to the National Weather Service. Winds will gust to 35 m.p.h. on Friday and be sustained at 15-20 m.p.h. The winds will lighten up on Saturday, becoming variable at 5-10 m.p.h.
Friday’s high will be just 48-degrees, with temperatures falling into the low 30s at night. It will be sunny, however, and despite a forecast overnight low of 33 degrees Friday into Saturday, the weekend will begin with clear skies and a high of 48 Saturday. Clouds will move in Sunday, but precipitation will be avoided.
The next chance of rain comes Sunday night into Monday, when high temperatures will reach 58 and 55 degrees, respectively. Windy conditions will begin Monday and, according to the NWS forecast, last into Thanksgiving Day next Thursday.
