Mild Surge of Air Ahead Before A Return To “Normal”
As they say, “Why be normal?”
We certainly have been anything but normal this month with almost everyday near or above the average.
With the next 3 days expected to be above normal, this could likely end up being Boston’s warmest November on record.
Watch Joe’s forecast:
This morning SW winds have made for a very mild start in the 50′s for most. Abundant high-mid level cloud cover will continue to stream through the region creating a cloudy appearance to the sky…but there will be breaks of sun. How much sun we see will determine how warm we eventually will become by this afternoon. A more active wind with gusts to 20-30 mph will bring temps into the lwr-mid 60′s by this afternoon. I am expecting a thinning to the clouds for the second half of the day…any substancial sunshine will boost temps into the upper 60′s…especially across Metro west all the way to the coast…but we’ll see.
South flow remains in place tonight with much of the region remaining in the warm sector of the pattern. Clouds will be thickening overnight with some patchy fog or even spotty drizzle overnight with lows in the Lwr 50′s
Tuesday will be watching a low tracking up the Ohio Valley up into the St Lawrence valley. Cloudy overcast skies with breezy SE winds…but still mild air in place will keep temps in the Upper 50′s and Lwr 60′s. Warmest temps will be in SE MA away from the coast with highs 62-64. Deepening moisture and high relative humidity through the day…but mainly dry. Light rain and drizzle will begin in western new England by late afternoon. By Tuesday night, the main batch of rain will push through with an occluded front. Briefly heavy downpours, maybe some embedded thunder which will produce a quick moving .50-1″ rain in downpours.
A mild start Wednesday morning with temps near 60 with showers quickly pushing off the coast. Colder air will be wrapping in on the back side of this departing low, so temps will begin to fall in the afternoon. High pressure builds in for Thursday with sunshine and Lwr 50′s. A more seasonal feel to end the week.
Upper level shortwave will push through late Friday with a few clouds/brief rain/snow shower with a cooler shot of air to start the weekend. Sunshine Saturday mid 40′s, Increasing high clouds Sunday 46-50.
A more significant shot of cold air is likely to come out of Canada into the northeast by Next week. This will have us reaching for the warmer coats and turning on the heat again as we will likely begin the transition to a cooler weather regime for December…very typical for this time of year.
