Weekly Outlook

Weekly Outlook: November 6-12, 2017

You’ve got one more day to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather, then changes are certainly on the way. By the end of the week, some bigger changes are coming.

The week starts off on a mild note, as most of the ones this fall have, but we’ll have plenty of clouds in place as a cold front comes marching in from the west. This front produced severe weather across much of the Midwest yesterday, and while we’re not expecting severe weather here, we are expecting some locally heavy showers from late morning into the evening, and a rumble of thunder can’t be ruled out. The showers end in the evening as a strong cold front crosses the region. That front will stall out south of New England for mid-week, and a couple of waves of low pressure will ride along it. They should be too far to the south to spread much, if any precipitation into the region, but they should keep the clouds in place. At the same time, high pressure will build into Northern New England, with more seasonable temperatures expected. This will keep us dry and cool into the middle portion of the week.

By Thursday, we start to prepare for the next set of changes. A strong cold front will cross the region Thursday night, producing a few showers across the region. There’s even a chance that some of those showers could have some snowflakes mixed in. (Remember – it is early November) Behind that front, colder air will come pouring into the region on Friday on gusty northwest winds. A few more snow showers are possible as well. Winds start to die down on Saturday, but despite the sunshine, temperatures will be well below normal. In fact much of the region may not even reach 40 degrees for a high. The next system heads towards the area on Sunday, with clouds streaming in followed by showers late in the day. Temperatures will start to moderate, so we’ll be looking at mainly rain showers.
