The weather this week in summary: Wet Monday Wet Tuesday, Wet Friday. Nice Wed. Nice Thu. Yup, nice middle, unpleasant bookends.
Back to today ... well, my timing was off by about 6-8 hours from Saturday’s forecast issue. I knew it yesterday, but the basic idea of rain today was right, so I left it alone. Sunday’s are busy and wanted to enjoy the wonderful fall day in the late afternoon with family … so that is what we did.
As a result, the timing for Tue rain will be very similar … move it up 6-8 hours. In fact, tomorrow will look a lot like today: rain in the morning and early afternoon, then ending. There could be a rumble of thunder tomorrow, although most of that should be to our west. Expect about another 1” rain, after today’s 1” or so.
High pressure takes over for midweek. Wednesday and Thursday look to be very nice fall days. A little breezy on Wed, and a little cooler on Thu but less breezy.
Friday looks miserable. A new storm will form with one low along the coast, and another low in the eastern Ohio Valley/Great Lakes region. This will generate lots or rain for us (surprise, surprise) and even some wet snow for the far northern Mtns of PA into NY and New England. You might be able to see a sloppy wet snow flake on Fri as the rain begins, if the temperatures are cold enough. Regardless, it will be cold and wet with temperatures hovering about 40 for much of the day.
Saturday and Sunday look to be unseasonably cold days for the first half of November with some sunshine and temperatures around the low 40s for highs and low at night dropping into the 20’s. Almost winterlike.
And speaking of winterlike, the first potential shot at some snow could come early the following week. Tue the 13th of Nov looks interesting. A new storm, which makes sense, and some cold air available. At the least, more soaking rains.
Until next time, enjoy.
