The nor’easter will wrap up Friday morning, and that will be the last of the storm weather for quite a while. There’s only one wet (not white) blip in the seven-day forecast.

Strong winds will be the case on Friday morning.

Northwest sustained winds of 20-30 mph with gusts in the 40s at the shore will be present.

In this setup, not only will there be blown-over lawn furniture, but small tree limbs and isolated power outages will become an issue.

In terms of rainfall, we will just see a back-end swath of rain move through parts of the region until around 8 a.m.

This likely will not be everywhere.

The closer to Cape May you will be, the drier you will be.

Winds will calm down during the afternoon, though it will still be breezy, with gusts around 30 mph. Sunshine will quickly replace the clouds, as drier air funnels in.

Temperatures will stay steady around 50 degrees for the day, though there will only be mid-40s in places like Upper Deerfield and Fairfield townships.

Friday night will be mainly clear. Low temperatures will bottom out around 30 on the mainland, with upper 30s at the shore.

High pressure continues to fill in, and will stay filled in for the weekend.

Saturday and Sunday will be a pair of mostly sunny days, with more sunshine toward Cape May.

High temperatures will feel a little more like Christmas, staying in the upper 40s. Thankfully, winds will be under 10 mph throughout.

Then, we turn into Thanksgiving week. The only blip in the dry forecast will be at the beginning of it, Monday morning.

A clipper system will quickly pass through the region.

There should be enough moisture around for isolated showers Monday morning, perhaps some more north of the White Horse Pike. Otherwise, we will break for sunshine again. Highs will sit around 50.

A new Canadian high pressure system will fill in Tuesday.

The good news? You’ll have no travel issues with the weather.

The bad news (for some)? Temperatures take a dive down. Highs Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the low to mid-40s. That’s about 10 degrees below average. However, the plentiful sunshine and light westerly winds will cut some of the chill.

An early look at Thanksgiving shows a day stuffed with sunshine.

It’ll feel like football weather, as highs bump up a bit into the upper 40s.
