WINTER FORECAST: If you want some good discussion go to www.weatherbell.com or www.nynjpaweather.com both are excellent and have similar forecasts. I follow both of these forecasters for their indepth study and knowledge and skill. I've learned alot from them. So for details see their sites. I agree with them for the most part.
My simple forecast is for a similar trend will occur this year as we had last winter which means:
Back to This Week:
Well, it was frosty this morning. A hard freeze. The growing season is over for this year. On a side note, the average freeze for our area I learned last week is Oct 20. This morning, it is Oct 19. Pretty average! But the cod will begin retreating today.
Did you see the show showers yesterday? Now yesterday’s snow showers were nothing to write home about, just our first sighting for the season. Nothing like that coming again for a while. Have to wait until November for a shot at seeing more snow showers.
For this week? We have a trough lifting out, taking the cold air with it, as the big cold high settles to our south, bringing warming westerly winds to our area. Temps will jump into the 60s for midweek, maybe nearing 70 on Thu. A cool down for Fri and then another front with the only real chance for showers this week on Sat night/Sunday.
Since it will remain dry, enjoy the days, evenings, and fall colors. This would be a great week to get out and enjoy. Next week is looking stormier and wetter. But when you have zero storminess and less than .25” of rain, hard not to be stormier and wetter, is it?
My Weather Points for this Week:
Monday: 52. Mostly sunny. Chilly. Frost/freeze at night in lower valleys.
Tuesday: 63. Mostly sunny. Pleasant.
Wednesday: 67. Mostly sunny. Breezy. Warmer.
Thursday: 69. At least partly sunny. Breezy.
Friday: 53. Sun and clouds. Chilly breeze. Frosty overnight.
Saturday: 61. Mostly sunny. Milder.
Sunday: 63. Mostly cloudy. Chance showers.
