Hurricane Kate Out To Sea, Coastal Low Following As Well
The satellite loop this morning shows a very well defined Hurricane Kate racing east northeastward out to sea and you can also see on the last few frames the coastal low that is moving right behind it.

The back edge of the clouds extends pretty far to the west but there is also some dry air coming down from Eastern Canada so I’m thinking we could see some breaks of sunshine this afternoon especially western areas. Eastern areas may have to fight these clouds into the afternoon but should clear out somewhat in the mid to late afternoon.
Radar does show the back edge of shower activity slowly decreasing across Eastern New York and Southern New England. This trend will continue into the afternoon as everything begins to shift to the east. Weather conditions continue to improve tonight as skies partially clear out and temperatures settle down into the upper 30s cold spots and 40s elsewhere.
Thursday marks the arrival of another cold front and there could be a few showers or even a thunderstorm with that during Thursday afternoon. The front will probably produce unusual November severe weather today across the midwest but by the time it gets here it will weaken some. Most of the energy with this will pass well to our north. Highs Thursday will be back in the 60s.
Friday through Sunday look good with sunshine each day but temperatures will close to average for a change with highs in the low to mid 50s and nights in the 30s with possibly 20s in cold spots depending on sky and wind conditions. No big storms are on the horizon into early next week.
