This will be one very cold week for the middle of November! It will seem more like January in many regards. The one thing that might be missing is the snow. A cold rain will start the week, with a touch of ice to start in cold spots so be careful, and then bitter cold, interrupted by a chance of snow Thu/Fri. Lots of questions surrounding that chance. But more cold through Sat. It will get milder for Thanksgiving week. Here is the forecast with some additional thoughts below.
High: Low: Weather Details
Monday: 38 26 Cold miserable rain. Maybe some wet snow in evening.
Tuesday 28 20 Windy very cold. Sun and clouds. Flurry/Snow shower
Wednesday 29 23 Mostly sunny and cold. More clouds with snow shower
Thursday 33 28 Partly sunny, clouds increasing; some snow late?
Friday 33 28 Some snow possible. Colder again.
Saturday 32 20 Mostly sunny, breezy and cold.
Sunday 38 32 Increasing clouds. Snow showers possible. Cold.
1. Cold wet storm ending Monday evening. Snow to our west in the mountains. Could start icy in spots, but mainly a cold rain. Possibly (really big if) ending as a period of snow, but no big deal for us.
2. Midwinter cold Tue – Sat. Highs only in the 20s Tue – Wed.
3. New storm approaches Thu-Friday with snow a possibility. Lots of unknowns with this one, except that it will be snow and cold. But is storm a clipper with sharp front and period of snow/squalls? Or a redevelopment and bigger snow along coast? Or weak and strung out with a snow shower over the mountains and that is all? Like I said, lots of questions. And no help from the models as they are all over the place too. I really do not have a great feeling for it, except to expect some kind of snow Thu-Fri. More details will come.
4. Thanksgiving: Stormy and wet leading up to Thanksgiving. Relatively speaking, compared to this week, Thanksgiving week will be mild.
