You are not alone if you thought yesterday was unusually cold. Sunday was the first time since 1949 that a November day had a high of only 30 degrees. The 30 degrees tied the record, originally set in 1880, for lowest maximum temperature for Nov. 24th. This morning's low of 23 did fall short of the record low for today, so our string of no record lows for nearly a decade continues. Not much warming is expected this afternoon. Look for a high just above freezing.
Sometime tomorrow the weather is going to take a turn for the worse. A nasty winter storm that's already being blamed for eight deaths out West is blasting across the South today and is expected to move up the coast tomorrow. The precipitation is likely to start as some sort of windy rain/snow/sleet mix during the day tomorrow but switch over to all rain by late afternoon. Tuesday's high should reach the mid 40s.
The nor'easter is expected to hug the shore as it moves up the East Coast and that means rain instead of snow except for higher elevations inland. Look for a steady rain from early tomorrow evening until the cold front arrives late afternoon on Wednesday. We're talking a drought busting 2-4 inches of rain. Wednesday's high will be in the mid-to-upper 50s. Gusty winds, much colder air and maybe a few snow flurries will follow the cold front's passage. Thanksgiving day will be blustery and cold, possibly grounding the parade balloons, with a high only in the mid 30s.
