BRRRRR! FINALLY! I FINALLY HAD TO SCRAPE MY WINDOWS! I FINALLY FELT A CHILL WORTHY OF A BIG COAT! I SEE A TREND OF AT LEAST BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR A WHILE, BUT NOTHING THAT SAYS WE ARE STUCK IN WHAT WILL BE WINTERS PATTERN! WINTER OUTLOOK WAS POSTED! DID YOU SEE IT?
Well we definitely trended cold and, though Thursday we will push above normal, we will likely stay a little below normal for the most part for a while. There is a coastal low that MAY be pulled into an upper level low that will slide through New England this weekend, and if it catches the storm could cause snow in the eastern part of New England. Not here, but cool (for a snow love like me!) to think about! The Result will be a windy time for us! Veteran’s Day is this Thursday, which also reminds me of the surprise snowstorm in 1987 that dumped some very large amounts of snow over parts of the region. I lived in Richmond and we had 4 inches! What was crazy is that the region had above normal temperatures before the event, and temps moderated and melted the snow almost as quickly as it came right after the event! I was reading all about it in the DC Weather Book which is an incredible book detailing weather in the Washington Area. I strongly recommend it as a Christmas Present for the weather or even history lover in the Family! There is quite the deal going on the Weather Book Web Site now with it being only $15!!!!! Ok, I speak with the Photographer from time to time via email and I really like his book and photography (which is also on sale on his site in his “Season’s of Washington” collection!!) so I wanted to mention his Book and photos!! We get a chance for some showers Thursday into Friday as more cold air arrives for the weekend which could be breezy based on the New England almost storm deepening out at Sea!
Sunny, temps 50-60 (some 40s mountains)
Moderating temps to at or above seasonal norms. 55-70. Night time showers (could turn to snow showers in higher terrain)
Showers end, colder temperatures return with highs low 40s to upper 50s.
Saturday and Sunday:
Temps will moderate towards seasonal, but will likely stay a little below normal.
Seems to be more of the same until a little later next week where we favor more moderating temperatures and could set up a wetter pattern for a bit.
