Back At It!
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Recharged & ready for winter after some time away.....and on the maps this morning I spy an arctic front barreling through the Great Lake states heading for New England. Gulp. More on that in a minute, right now it's about Monday-Veterans Day and our weather is decent with a mix of sun & clouds. Temps will reach up near 50 by afternoon but a fiesty west wind will mask some of that warmth of the air so layer up for the parades & ceremonies. Those clouds that you will see later today are the leading edge of that arctic front.
That front makes its advance on us overnight first in the form of clouds (and mild temps ahead of the front; temps in the 40s) and then some rain showers well after midnight. As the arctic air arrives around 5-8am tomorrow those rain showers will change to snow showers as they move offshore. For most of us, it's just snowflakes from the sky melting on contact with the ground but there could be a few heavier snow squalls that might be able to briefly slicken up some of the streets/sidewalks during the morning rush. In any event, plan for a blustery & cold day as temps stay in the upper 30s for much of the day. Wednesday is very December-like despite mostly sunny skies. Temps will start in the low 20s and only reach the upper 30s by afternoon.
The rest of the week will see the weather return to what the calendar says...November. Look for mainly sunny skies for both Thursday & again on Friday as temps begin to rebound reaching the upper 50s by Friday afternoon.
A shout out on Veterans Day to those of you that serve (or have served) our country as well as to your families--thank you.
