Cold, Wind to Blast the East on Friday

Recent temps in the 60s will soon be erased by highs in the upper 30s to low 50s
Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013

Temperatures in the East will slide downhill into Friday and the chill will hang around this weekend.

After a front brings clouds and a few hours of rain to the Atlantic Seaboard and Appalachians on Thursday, blustery and colder conditions are in store for the region Friday.

Recent temperatures in the 60s will soon be erased by highs in the upper 30s, 40s and low 50s.

Winds will not be quite as strong as last week's damaging gusts, but west to northwest blusters will average 15 to 30 mph with gusts around 40 mph in most areas.

Power outages and downed trees are not expected, but there may be some minor flight delays due to crosswinds. Fallen leaves will be scattered and blown about the neighborhoods.

When combined with air temperatures, wind and other atmospheric conditions, RealFeel® temperatures will be in the 20s and lower 30s at times.

The air will be cold enough to produce a few bands of lake-effect snow or mixed rain and snow downwind of lakes Erie, Huron and Ontario.

Over the weekend, the wind is forecast to ease a bit but will be far from silent. Folks spending time outdoors at football games or doing yard work will want to layer their clothes.

By the book, the air coming in Friday into Sunday is not quite as cold as last weekend's chill.

However, a reinforcing push of cold air is likely to follow next week that could set new seasonal marks for cold so far.

The waves of chilly weather may coincide with a couple of storms near and just beyond the middle of the month to bring scattered areas of snow and a wintry mix to part of the region, before warmth begins to build and expand northward in the eastern part of the nation late in the month.

"Cold" snap? Temps in the 40's and 50's is NOT a "cold" snap....a cool down, yes, but NOT a "cold" snap. That is unless your from the "northeast" where the politicians let off so much hot air that they raise the normal temps so much that 40's and 50's seem cold.

As if politicians anywhere else aren't full of hot air as well, the Northeast is no better or worse than any other region in that regard.
