Saturday November 11 2023 Forecast (7:44AM)

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.

  1. Good morning and thank you to everyone. You started my day with happy tears. What a wonderful family WHW is. Mac’s sister was a Grobanite. This song is on my mind today.

    JimmyJames, I posted too late last night. Sorry. You were in my thoughts on your uncles angel day yesterday. So this is for you too.

  2. Thank you to our many, many heroes for giving so much of themselves to keep us safe. Thank you to their families also. ❤️

  3. Vicki I’m putting this message here since it will also serve as a reminder for those folks to get their guesses in for the snowfall contest.

    Since last year’s page was hardly utilized, I edited it to become this year’s page, so if you look at the tab menu you’ll see one that says SNOWFALL CONTEST 2023-2024. This is the one we can use to list all the guesses!

    I made the deadline at the end of the day November 22 (the day before Thanksgiving). My winter outlook will be posted before that and will include my guesses which can then be added to the page.

    1. Awesome. Thank you. I’ll put the guesses already shared on there now and watch for any that are added here.

  4. I forgot to mention that we stopped in Tennessee at our favorite place…..Buc….ees!
    Filled the gas for 2.69/gallon. Different world.

    And Vicki…..may his memory be a blessing!

    1. I was introduced to Buc-ees in Texas. It’s sure getting around! I had never seen an entire wall of different kinds of jerky before.

  5. Thank you Vicki. I can’t believe it was 8 years ago yesterday my Uncle at 59 passed away after a battle with luekiemia.

    1. It is so hard to believe eight years have passed. I am So very sorry as I know the memories are always in our hearts but the sadness from loss still lingers behind those memories. Hugs to you and to your family.

  6. Thanks, TK.

    Thinking of you and your family, VIcki.

    Also thinking of all veterans – living and deceased – who’ve served our country.

    My sister has been a doctor at the VA since she completed her residency 20 years ago. She’s turned down far more lucrative jobs to stay with the VA. She always tells me she “loves her vets.” This includes the now very old ones who served in WW2 and Korea to much more recent vets from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She and I share similar views on war and violence. We hate war and violence and are generally pacifists. BUT, we recognize the importance of having dedicated men and women in service to our country. Also, what many folks forget is that the military missions of American soldiers are often strictly humanitarian: From Haiti to Bosnia there have been numerous instances in which U.S. military was crucial in getting food, water and medicines to people. Moreover, no-one can underestimate the importance of deterrence. I lived in Europe during the 1980s. The Soviet Union still posed a dangerous threat. Most of the Europeans I spoke to were grateful for the American presence of soldiers on the ground in countries like Germany. They still are. This holds for Japan and Korea, too.

  7. To: TK

    1) Thank you as always for the forecast.

    2) If you have the time, energy, and will … I’ll take a 3 PM forecast for Sunday in Frankfurt Germany. If you don’t have the time, certainly understood. Either way, thanks again.

    1. I believe some rain will move through before the game, but be largely over by kick off, and under a cloudy sky with darkness falling they should see a kick off temp about 47F (8C) and an end of game temp about 42F (5C). A light wind will blow from the west to southwest.
