The first week of November really felt like fall! For the first time in quite a while we saw a below normal temperature week. After the second latest first freeze on record in Hartford, we had multiple days of morning lows below freezing!
We've also seen mostly dry conditions after a number of rain events. The second week of November is looking warmer, mostly nice, and mostly dry. Let's dive in.
There's actually not much to say. When we describe the period as warm or mild, we're not really talking about October like warmth. We'll see a gradual warm up with highs in the low 60s on Monday and mid to upper 60s on Tuesday, followed by a gradual downturn in temperatures with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s on Thursday. Nighttime lows will be warmer than they've been the last few weeks.
Conditions will be nice, with sunny and dry conditions followed by more clouds on Wednesday and Thursday in advance of our next storm system.
Friday should bring our next rain event. A large area of low pressure is expected to develop and cut to our west, bringing what looks like a rainy day and/or evening on Friday. The rain could be heavy at times based on the signal we see so far. Depending on how quickly the front associated with the storm passes, the weekend is looking better with cooler and dry conditions. Like I said, not actually much to say!
Keep in mind over the course of the week that it is fog season, and the valleys could start the day quite foggy depending on conditions!
