DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 27 – DECEMBER 1)
Low pressure that was once temporarily stuck in the Texas area has decided it’s “time to fly” and will be moving rapidly northeastward toward our area today and moving through tonight with some wet weather accompanying its passage. A follow up area of energy will prolong the cloudiness and a rain shower chance into Monday morning, after which we see a return to fair weather with the departure of low pressure and approach / arrival of high pressure through Tuesday. But this won’t last too long either as the next storm system, a stronger low destined for a track through the Great Lakes and far southeastern Canada, drags a frontal boundary our way later Wednesday with more rain showers heading this way that day. All the while we’ll have a mild stretch to end November. December arrives Thursday and we should be watching that cold front fly offshore and a shot of drier, chilly air moving in at that time, with wind…
TODAY: Filtered to dimmed sunshine with lots of high clouds morning. Generally overcast afternoon – light rain chance increases west to east. Highs 49-56. Wind S increasing to 5-15 MPH with higher gusts.

DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 2-6)
High pressure brings fair weather with seasonable temperatures December 2-3, then milder with a chance of rain showers December 4 as low pressure passes north of the region. Cooler air follows. Starting to watch for additional unsettled weather by the end of the period but it’s way out there so no details possible.
DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 7-11)
This period should find us in a battle zone between the mild US Southeast and the colder Canada. Pattern looks a little more unsettled and variable in temperature during this time, as I have mentioned the previous couple blogs. Obviously looking out this far I cannot provide you with detailed guesses on any particular days / systems with that kind of set-up.
