Today will be seasonable, but this weekend, the air will have a slight ‘bite’ to it.  High will be in the middle 50s today amongst the clouds, peeks of sun, and a raindrop or two for southeastern Massachsetts this afternoon/evening.  The slight chance of rain is due to a shortwave rotating around this upper level trough that just doesn’t seem to go away! ;)

This first weekend of November will be a cool one with highs flirting with 50F.  It will be breeziest on Saturday and sunniest on Sunday. Generally-speaking, it will be a partly cloudy to mostly sunny weekend. ***(DST Ends this Sunday at 2am.  Turn clocks BACK one hour, and enjoy the ‘extra’ hour of sleep!)

It will remain non-eventful through early next week, but highs will not even climb out of the 40s on Monday or Tuesday. Then, a coastal storm is showing up on the models for Wednesday and Thursday.  The GFSx shows a more easterly track with cool enough air wrapping in to produce wintry precipitation across the far interior and higher elevations. The EURO shows a more westerly track with warmer air in the vicinity which depicts a rainy scenario. The higher elevations of Northern New England may still get wintry precip. with this solution.  For the most part, I’d plan for a mostly rain event for our viewing area for now.  As we look at the track record for these models, I feel more comfortable putting slightly more trust with the EURO, but with this storm being 6 days out, a lot can and most likely will change. We will be following the latest.
