More Treat than Trick
Much nicer today, and tomorrow will start off great, but end rather damp and wet. Sunday’s forecast is turning out a little trickier than originally thought. The trick is timing, and if the timing is late, the better the treat!
Yeah, if the front holds off until late afternoon, 75 may not be out of the question! Now that would be a nice treat. But the trick is to get that front to wait until late. Once that front arrives, it will rain some. It will be mostly light rain, say around ¼” to ½” at most.
Behind the front it grows cooler, but a warm up is on the way for midweek. This warm up may present a challenge for Tue. It looks on paper to warm up, but the position of the high may push low level clouds into our area and as warmer air tries moving in up above, thus trapping the clouds. This would keep Tue rather chilly. The models are all hinting at this quite strongly, and the weather set up would support it. But by Wed these clouds should begin to disappear. And then Thu’s temps could soar to 70 or above if the cold front moves through overnight Thu, rather than during the day. The picture will be clearer over the next few days.
The pattern is evolving and there are indications of our weather growing much colder as we head into the middle portion of November. This is not a pattern shift as it is more of a maturing of the pattern due to the season. In late summer and early fall the Atlantic ridge dominated our weather, however, even though it is still around, but it has become more transient. This occurs as the land is cooling rapidly as we head deeper into the fall season. And if you noticed, we have begun to have more weather systems move through as the trough tries to establish itself in the eastern half of the nation. Again, I believe the holidays will be have some weather challenges.
Until next time, thank the Lord for what ya got!

Pastor Terry. He received his bachelors degree in Meteorology from the State University of New York at Oneonta, in 1994. The education continued as a hobby by reading the blogs of some of the best forecasters in the business. Although forceasting the weather is an imperfect science, it is a pleasure to follow what the Creator has made.
