Time for a holiday
The holidays have arrived. This time of year, it can bring joy and excitement, as well as sorrow and pain. I can say for myself, the once large family I was a part of is now down to just four of us. It's surreal to think of all the people we have lost since 2016. One of the things I have learned over the years is I don't make the rules of life, I just try to do my best to live with whatever cards are dealt to me. I recently celebrated 31 years of recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. The one thought that I continue to hold close, even through the harshest of times is that gratitude isn't a thought; it is a way of life. While I could focus on what is wrong, I work hard to see the glass of life half full. My prayer and hope for you that blessings cover you and sustain you through holidays and into the new year. Thank you for being part of my journey!
High pressure moving in for Thanksgiving
An occluded (weakening) area of low pressure over Newfoundland spinning upper-level disturbances over the region Wednesday is responsible for the snow shower activity over the north. Another weak disturbance may bring some snow showers to the mountains overnight. High pressure is expected to settle in by Thanksgiving morning and bring a peaceful day with sun and cool temperatures.
A light mixed bag of precipitation Friday
Friday 7 AM to Saturday 1 AM - Black Friday starts off dry, but rain and snow shower activity is expected to move in over western and southern areas before noon, and eastern and northern areas by late morning to early afternoon. Travel may be a bit dicey in spots north of Route 2, but not a big concern at this point. The mountains and north may pick up a couple inches of snow, the coastal plain a tenth or two of an inch of rain.
The storm is expected to intensify as it heads into the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and bring breezy conditions to the region for Saturday, with wind gust potential 25-40 mph with the higher gusts possible for the mountains and shorelines.
High pressure moves into the region Saturday afternoon and settles the wind by Saturday night.
Another potential mixed bag event
