Sunday November 12 2023 Forecast (6:54AM)

DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 12-16)

A quick Sunday update. Dry regime continues. Only chance of precipitation is from a passing disturbance in a northwest flow late Monday to early Tuesday, which can bring a few snow and rain showers to the region. Otherwise we remain dominated by high pressure with dry weather. Temperatures will run below normal for a few days, with a warm-up later in the period.

TODAY: Partly to mostly sunny. Highs 40-47. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.

TONIGHT: 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 45-52. Wind W up to 10 MPH.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 25-32. Wind SW up to 10 MPH.

THURSDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 52-59. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 17-21)

A low pressure trough from the west and some probable tropical moisture from the south turns the region mainly cloudy with a period of two of wet weather likely in the November 17-18 time frame. Timing and details to be worked out as we go through the week. Fair, cooler to colder mid to late period as unsettled system pulls away and drier Canadian air replaces it.

DAYS 11-15 (NOVEMBER 22-26)

Looking for a progressive low pressure / frontal system to move through just before Thanksgiving to start the period, then mostly fair weather seems more likely as we head into and possibly through the extended holiday weekend period. This is not a high confidence forecast but based on pattern trends that may keep southern jet stream moisture and northern jet stream energy apart.

  1. Walked the shore early AM and it was 28. It’s up to 33-34 degrees now. Thinking it might get to 45 today.

  2. Thank you, TK.

    Yet another beautiful November day.

    We take these things for granted in Boston. Let me tell you, “beautiful sunny day” and “November” are not found together in a sentence in everyday parlance in the Dutch language or Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Gaelic, King’s English, etc …

  3. Good morning and Thank TK.
    1st freeze this morning as it got to 31 here. I expected 29, but didn’t get it.

    I suppose Logan made 30 go figure.

  4. Thank you to everyone for your kind words yesterday. Hadi, I agree that it doesn’t seem possible to have been eight years. And oddly, this year was one of the most difficult for me.

  5. The NFL and the Krafts should be forced to apologize to Germany and the rest of the world for this horrible product. That is all. G’day!

  6. Wow! You have strong feelings on this.

    I disagree wholeheartedly! When a team does not put a good product on the field, they don’t deserve to have fans follow them!

    I DID turn the game off and I won’t return to it. And very likely I am DONE for the year.

    Bob Kraft should be ashamed of himself for giving the loyal
    Patriots fans such a piece of shit product.

    Something is whacked out in Foxborough and Me thinks it starts at the TOP!!!

    End of my rant.

    1. So the 2 decades we saw mean nothing?

      Yes it’s not “great” now, but every single team. Every. Single. Team. Goes through this.

      We’re spoiled. And it’s showing. 🙂

      I’ve already seen a bunch of people say they were done for the year. And every one of them will just turn the next game on. I don’t buy the statement no matter who says it. 🙂

      If one is a true fan, they stay with a team in the good times AND the bad times. Otherwise, the term is “fair weather fan”. It’s a fair and accurate statement. 🙂

        1. Yep.
          I have always felt this way and I always will.
          I can’t just like a team when they do well. If I’m a fan, I’m a fan.

          We are the most spoiled city in the country in the last two decades and we know it… 🙂

        1. Nah.

          It’s simply not worth it.

          This is just sports and we have been blessed with championship teams all over the place for two decades and anybody who can’t understand that hasn’t been watching.

          I’m just going to go on and do what I do and let people do what they have to do. 🙂

  7. Everyone has a right to his or her views on where the disconnect is. I have never been able to only support a team when it is winning. I will say the folks in the stands sure seem to be enjoying the game.

  8. what I understand of the europe games, is that they kind of treat it as their soccer tournaments and has more of a superbowl/world series feel to them. You have people that enjoy the game more so than just the fans of the teams

      1. To some degree, yes. Fans in Europe are loyal to their clubs, to a fault. I do like the loyalty aspect. I detest the violence, however, and the fact that women and young children (especially girls) are hardly seen in the stands at soccer games throughout Europe. It’s not something for Europe to be proud of. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that our family-friendly atmosphere, for the most part, at pretty much every sporting event I’ve gone to in America (and that’s a lot) beats the experience in Europe of attending a soccer game (where I sometimes feared for my safety and often felt uncomfortable) by a wide margin.

        1. Thanks, Joshua. Interesting. Mac and family had a different experience as I understood it. I do know they were surprised by Boston’s fan/media history.

  9. Thoughts on this game.
    1. Running game has been improving more.
    2. Defense showed up today gave the offense many opportunities to win today.
    3. Offense showed promise at times but can never finish a drive. Inconsistency and costly penalties in bad spots.
    4. Mac Jones, is not making good decisions on the field. If he is wanting to keep his job, he needs to clean it up, today’s mistakes were not on other people. Two costly turnovers all on him.
    5. Patriots need a receiver, qb and oline. The other position that is needed that can be addressed is edge rusher as we have seen how this defense has struggled to get pressure without Judon.

    1. Mac Jones needs to be released. He said himself that he is in his head. BB put him there. BB has destroyed him and continues to do the same. BB has failed and is using Jones as a deflection. My fear is Jones cannot recover.

      Curiously, if a family member or friend were struggling, would any person turn his or her back on that person or would he or she support him.

  10. Keep in mind that for Europeans the NFL is a narrow niche market that has barely expanded in 40 years. Its expansion has been marginal. For the vast majority of Europeans it’s too complicated, too slow and non-continuous (too many breaks) and exorbitant in terms of cost to participate in. There’s some interest in the UK and Germany, but it’s very limited in comparison to other sports like soccer, rugby and cricket.

    The European fans you see in the stands in Europe for an NFL are mostly curious onlookers and NOT the kinds of fans you’d see at, say, Old Trafford, for a Manchester United game.

  11. BB does need to be relieved of his duties. Now. He won’t resign as there’s too much money that he’d leave on the table. But keeping him makes no sense. He’s not only lost his coaching skills, he’s lost the locker room. Never a player’s coach to begin with – winning and Brady helped make this mostly irrelevant – now that the team is a doormat with absolutely no future (this must be added, as BB is responsible for the groceries and has failed miserably) he can’t get through to players.

  12. Vicki, I think Sweden is very different. I don’t know as I’ve never been there.

    I do agree with Mac on the negativity of Boston fans – the hypercriticism – but that is a different topic from the volatility and violence of hardcore fans in Europe. It can be really bad, is often racist, too (bananas thrown on the pitch, racist slurs chanted at stadiums – aimed at blacks, Jews and other minorities).

    1. He might have been too young in Sweden to form an opinion. I’m guessing his views came from South Africa and Rome. His parents continued to France, Brazil and Luxembourg. This is when I really miss being able to call them ❤️

  13. I know many on here hate Bill, but I do not. Have rather strong feelings about it as well. This team has so many problems and several I think Bill made some bad moves playing the chess board but that doesn’t mean he should lose his position. He is going to go down as one of the greatest coaches in history. Not just in football but in American sports.

    1. Bill O’Brian would have been Bill’s first choice over Matt Patricia/Joe Judge combo but he was under contract at Alabama under a friend & didn’t want to cause issues but also wanted someone with stability for the offense in the long run that he could trust. I bet he tried to play chess here and lost his qb.
    2. This is the third OC change for Mac Jones and one of them were two people that never did offense. ( this was a mistake, it should have been someone that was on the patriots offensive scheme prior for the year)

    3. we have seen the playbook opening up for the patriots and have seen areas improving. With that said inconsistency down the stretch of the field is not good.

    4. Oline still stinks, but better than earlier this season, they need to address this especially depth.

    5. Injuries have plagued this team.

    Though Bill is the scapegoat for many, this team would not be this bad if it wasn’t for the oline and injuries. Recievers are getting open, running backs are doing what they can with the oline they have, defense constantly giving the offense opportunities. We saw what Mac Jones could be, but no qb would have been successful with the situation he had, with that said, that does not excuse the bad decision making he has been showing. That last interception looked like he just wanted to throw a pick. He had two receivers wide open.

    1. I don’t hate Bill. I’m not sure I have ever hated anyone. Angry yes, hate just isn’t in my makeup. And you have valid points. I just don’t agree. His greatness was defined by a man who constantly asked BB to step up and do more. And who was finally driven from the team by BB

      I found this a few days ago. But have been saying this for quite a while. Is he right? Am I right? Are you right? Time can only tell. But I really think this is a very fake assessment

  14. Wondering if there is a strip of minor snowfall accumulation Monday night somewhere in Southern New Hampshire or Eastern MA.

    Will look into this further.

  15. All teams have good and bad runs. This is true for most teams and certainly true for Boston teams. As for the Pats, they have a lot to straighten out. It may take a couple of years. Just for the record, I believe there is no team in the NFL that has a regular season winning record against the Pats in the 21st century.

    It’s hard as a fan to watch a game where your team does not score a touchdown for an entire game. But it’s part of being a fan. Let’s look at this way … Jets fans haven’t been to a SB in more than 50 years and in that period of time, I believe they maybe been in a dozen playoff games.

  16. I did get to watch the NWSL – women’s soccer league – final last night. It was an exciting match. Several skilled players stood out, especially Lavelle on the losing side. Man, she is gifted player.

    What I enjoy when watching women’s soccer is the fair play. There isn’t nearly as much flopping, almost no complaining to referees from players and hardly ever any cheap shots. Also the celebrations after goals aren’t as triumphant. I’m not a fan of most of the inane celebrations in men’s professional soccer and football.

    1. Again very interesting. Brings to mind a great who consistently said not to argue with the ref. He felt it only disrupted the players.

      I enjoy golf for much of the same reasons. No complaining and players often reported themselves for an infraction

  17. The contrast Belichick and Tomlin is stark at this point in time. While the Steelers have slightly more talent, it’s not that much.

    The Steelers have been outgained in yardage every game this season. Yet, they’re 6-3.

    In his career as head coach, Tomlin has never had a losing record.

    The Steelers are 9-0 in their last nine one-score games and 11-1 over their last 12 one-score games. Even dating back to 2021, Pittsburgh is 21-7-1 in one-score games.

    They know how to win, and that starts with the head coach Mike Tomlin.

    Belichick knew how to win with Brady, for sure. But he does not know how to win now and he’s mediocre at drafting or selecting the groceries.

  18. What a nice stretch of weather. Is there a way to bottle this? If it was 5 to 10 degrees colder I’d love it even more. But even now it’s near perfect. Just took a walk in the neighborhood. Delightful.
