Cold temps hold through Thanksgiving

Cool down begins this weekend

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - We've already been zapped by arctic air late last week. I don't know if the upcoming cold will be true dry and cold arctic air, but all signs are pointing toward temperatures remaining below normal through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Please keep in mind this is an average of temperature in the 8 to 14 day period. There could be one day where temperatures pop milder, but honestly, I don't see it. More than likely we're going to feel bouts of cold and windy weather.

Will there be snow? Probably. The upcoming setup seems to favor lake effect snow, and you know what that means. One area could get hammered with snow, while other areas see nary a flake.

Unlike the past couple of years, winter is not waiting to move into our area. The cold air is here. There is more snow cover in North America at this point in November than we've had in the past decade.

This is a change from previous years.

The cold air is able to hold its tenacity a bit more since the cold air is now moving over snow-covered ground.

The Storm Team Winter Outlook is this Thursday, November 16th, beginning at 5 p.m.

We'll see what the Storm Team is saying about the next few months.  I have no idea, Chief Meteorologist Jim Teske is keeping the forecast tight to the vest.
