WEATHER BLOG: Break Out The Winter Jackets & Fall Back!
#MDWX: The month of November got off to a mild and wild start Friday as a squall line of brief heavy rain and strong wind crossed the area in advance of a cold front. Despite the passage of that front, the temperature Saturday has been running above average with highs in a lot of spots topping out in the upper 60s. But things are about to change.
A second cold front is approaching from the northwest and that will cross the area overnight, bringing a reinforcing shot of chilly Canadian air. This will make for a much cooler day Sunday with highs forecast in the mid 50s, but we will really notice the chill overnight Sunday into Monday as lows dip down into the upper 20s and highs only reach into the upper 40s — break out the winter jackets!
Overall though, it is a more settled pattern for the Monday through Wednesday time frame. Meanwhile, a trough will dig over the western and central parts of the country and eventually shift eastward, bringing a cold front into the region on Thursday. This will likely bring some rain Thursday and/or Thursday night followed by a shot of chilly air for the end of that week.
And here is a friendly reminder to set your clocks back one hour before you go to sleep Saturday night, as standard time resumes Sunday at 2 a.m.
