This is the NAM surface temperature forecast for midday Tuesday. The yellow is temperatures above 60 degrees! The average high on Tuesday is 48 degrees in Hartford so if the 62º-64º forecast is accurate we’d be looking at substantially warmer than normal temperatures across Connecticut. Up north the NAM is showing 60s for ski country in southern Vermont – even in the higher elevations!
The warmth won’t last long. It’s back to normal by Wednesday afternoon along with a ripping northwesterly wind. The Thanksgiving storm (now delayed until Thursday night and Friday) could still produce a little bit of snow and sleet in southern New England with the potential for a more sizable winter storm (including ice) in Vermont and New Hampshire.
