DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 11-15)
November has been dry so far, continuing a trend from October, and our dry regime will continue for the next 5 days (at least). We’ve also turned to a cooler than normal pattern and that will also continue through 5 days. High pressure will provide the dry weather for this weekend. A brisk breeze at times will make the air feel a little colder than it is today, so keep that in mind if you’ll be outside for any Veterans Day parades / ceremonies. For this moment please allow me to thank all those who have served us and remember those who have passed on since coming back from service. Winds drop off tonight providing a decent set-up for radiational cooling, and Sunday’s wind will be a little less than today’s – a nice November day! Our overall northwest flow pattern continues into early next week, and a disturbance will move through the region late Monday into Tuesday, bringing more clouds and a chance of some passing rain and snow showers. Reinforcing cold air follows it for Tuesday but we’ll begin a slight moderation on Wednesday after a cold start to the day.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 43-50. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 24-31. Wind NW up to 10 MPH.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 40-47. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 26-33. Wind NW up to 10 MPH.
MONDAY: Clouds increase. A late day rain shower possible. Highs 43-50. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Chance of rain and snow showers. Lows 33-40. Wind W to NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
TUESDAY: Partly to mostly sunny. A passing rain or snow shower possible until midday. Highs 41-48. Wind NW 10-20 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Clearing. Lows 22-29. Wind NW diminishing to under 10 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Sunny. Highs 43-50. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 16-20)
High pressure shifts eastward toward the end of next week allowing a warm-up but also opening the door to both a trough from the west and a potential impact from tropical moisture to the south. It’s far too soon for the exact timeline on this threat but looking at later November 17 into November 18 (the start of the 3rd weekend of the month). This would be followed by a drier, colder finish to this period as the system departs to the northeast and pulls in a batch of polar air.
DAYS 11-15 (NOVEMBER 21-25)
Thanksgiving Week. We’ll need to watch for a progressive system to move through sometime before or around the holiday, but it’s too soon to know how impactful it will be. A drier pattern follows. Details to be worked out.
