It’s the last weekend before the holidays, and it feels like December again, at least for now.
We’ll be warming up this week. Tuesday will be very pleasant for early November standards as high pressure remains in control and begins to shift east.
Low pressure will be strengthening off the East Coast through Sunday as it lifts into Nova Scotia by Sunday evening.
West northwest flow will result in a dry and cooler afternoon with sun and some clouds.
T.G.I.F., and welcome to the first “summer” holiday weekend!
After a virtually cloudless day Monday, the ridge of high pressure in control of our weather will shift off of the coast Monday night allowing our flow to turn southwesterly by Tuesday.
Sunday was the warmest day since Oct. 6 of last year. Latest surface analysis shows a deep area of low pressure not too far from Chicago with a cold front trailing the low to the south-southwest.
Thursday has seen a few, spotty showers showing up on the regional radar.
We’ve had a good deal of sunshine Sunday afternoon, however cooler with a brisk wind compared to what we experienced Saturday.
There will be an extra bite in the air throughout the day thanks to a northerly breeze.
There is sunshine with most temperatures in the lower or middle 60s.
More clouds than sun will be the name of the game for the rest of Tuesday and Wednesday as temps continue to trend mild. We will top out Tuesday with highs in the mid/upper 50s and then low 60s for Wednesday.
