Happy November! The clocks are back an hour and with Thanksgiving a few weeks away a lot of us are already looking ahead to real fall weather.
Today wasn’t the best of days, with clouds lingering all day and a few showers lingering along the coast. Tomorrow isn’t much better, with a cold front moving through late in the day and evening that should bring more showers. After that however, things turn sunny, dry, and seasonable, with the chance of the first real cold shot by the weekend.
As I mentioned, tomorrow should be relatively similar to today, with clouds early and warmer than normal temperatures. However, by the afternoon and evening we should see a period of showers as a cold front pushes through and settles to the south of the region. That will knock down our temperatures for the rest of the week, as a different pattern takes over that allows for more seasonable conditions.
The middle of the week looks tranquil. As the cold front passes on Monday, high pressure settles in, bringing dry and seasonable conditions. It looks like we will see highs in the low to mid 50s across the state with lows getting down into the 30s even near the shore.
As you could see above, a strong push of cold looks poised to reach the region by Friday. On Friday, a cold front will move through the state. It currently looks like a dry front. However, in the wake of the front we should see our first legitimate cold shot of the season.
It is going to feel like late fall, with temperatures potentially struggling out of the 30s inland by Saturday. Sunday could be a bit warmer, but by then we are watching a system potentially develop and move in from the west late Sunday or on Monday. It is something to watch for our next chance at precipitation. Right now, the cold shot looks quick. We'll have to watch and see if the cold shot becomes more of cool shot (meaning warmer than currently expected temperatures) by the end of the week.
