HALLOWEEN BRINGS NOTHING SCARIER THAN GUSTY BREEZES & SUNSHINE
SHOWERS ARRIVE LATE THURSDAY NIGHT LASTING INTO EARLY SATURDAY
NOVEMBER BEGINS WITH AN ACTIVE PATTERN
This has certainly been an interesting up The first half of the month was above average temperature wise (overall) the second half below average. The first half saw a category 5 hurricane, the second saw a moderate noreaster impact us last weekend. We end the month with sunshine for Halloween. There is some cloud cover to the west and north but we are under high pressure to our south which will keep things nice and relatively quiet today. Highs will reach into the 60s in most places and there may be a little wind getting kicked up from the southwest this afternoon. There really isn’t anything too scary about that. Radars nearby are quiet and should remain so into tonight but areas to the north of NYC in the Hudson Valley will be seeing a warm front setting up overnight so some showers will start to pop up on the radar well north of Route 84 toward morning.
Nothing much has changed from overnight weather models for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. There will be a warm front setting up to our north in the Hudson Valley as low pressure develops to the west in Kentucky. Clouds and showers will line up north of the warm front which will keep areas south of the front in no worse than partly sunny skies for Thursday with highs in the 60s.
The first wave goes by with showers Thursday night into Friday morning and then a second wave comes through with more showers and thunderstorms Friday night into early Saturday before weather conditions improve. Highs will be in the 60s Friday. Then it turns cooler over the weekend as the next high builds in for Sunday. The second half of the weekend should be better than the first.
Next week it seems that the pattern will continue to be revved up as weather models show one trough after another dropping into the Eastern US. This will bring system after system impacting the Eastern US. A major storm is likely to develop early next week and heading into the Great Lakes. Wind and rain will return on Tuesday with probably some thunderstorms in the mix. Each one of these fronts will bring progressively colder shots of air into the US and into the Eastern US in the longer range.
Higher than average pressures across the polar regions continue to favor displacement of cold air masses southward. The trough in the Eastern US sets up a a strong connection from Northern Canada into the Eastern half of the US. The colder pattern lasts at least into mid month. Somewhere along the way we will likely see some early snows in the Eastern US though nothing specific is on the table at the moment.
