Staying quiet into the weekend

<B>(Friday Night November 16, 2012)</B> A few clouds will drop southward over our area tonight, but there should be enough clearing to allow temperatures into the 20s. More bright sunshine is forecast Saturday, with a light north-northeast wind, and highs in the mid 40s.
Steady as she goes weather-wise here in Central New York over the next few days.  There will only be a few subtle things going on into the weekend that will impact our weather.

There is actually a weak cold front moving east across southern Canada.  This front will come close to central New York tonight, but the only noticeable feature will be some low clouds and possible fog later tonight and early tomorrow.  If fog were to develop, areas impacted by the ground cloud might have some spotty black ice later tonight and early tomorrow.  Any low clouds and fog should burn off by the mid to late morning hours. 

Otherwise, high pressure will remain in control over our weather through the weekend into early next week.  This stagnant pattern will also mean very light winds for us. The November sun is not that strong (we are about a month away from the winter solstice) but still the air over us will gradually warm and end up in the 50s for Sunday and Monday.

Looking ahead toward the middle portion of next week and the Thanksgiving Day holiday, we still think largely dry weather will be the rule.  However, there are some recent indications that a cold front may work through the region Tuesday night into the first half of Wednesday.  If this were to occur, there would be a threat for at least a few showers, but right now this looks to be rather insignificant and should have little impact on holiday travelers.  Right now, the early Thanksgiving Day outlook calls for mainly dry and mild conditions.
