11/17 MD/VA/DC Weather Outlook


IT WAS A WEEK BEFORE WINTER (OK MAYBE A WEEK AND 2 DAYS) AND ALL THROUGH THE MID ATLANTIC EVERYONE WAS STIRRING ABOUT, BUT SOON THERE WILL BE COLD AND IS THERE SNOW TO TALK ABOUT?! ALL I WILL SAY IS ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS BECAUSE IT APPEARS WINTER IS ON THE MOVE TO THE EASTERN US AND WILL SHOW UP ABOUT THANKSGIVING, OR THE DAY AFTER!!

 

Summary:

I know I am cheesy but I want to start now giving people a heads up that winter will come in next week. This week is a cake walk! Seasonal temps or a few degrees above before a warm and cold front affect the areas. Cooler air follows Tuesday through about Thanksgiving day, and then, a much stronger front looks to arrive followed by colder conditions, and yes, there are 2 things to watch next week, but nothing to really worry about..at least not yet!

 

Today through Saturday:

Like I said above. Temperatures will hover close to their norms, but may be a degree or two above or below depending on the sun. Highs 55-70. Saturday will see increasing clouds and I cannot say a stray shower will not form during the latest part of the day in the south or far west.

 

Sunday and Monday

First transition front comes through and drops temps back to their 50-60 degree range which will be 5-10 degrees below norms for some. Showers will be a good bet during Sunday and part of Monday.

 

Long Term

I have been alluding to it for days.. a change is coming and will set up winter 2004-2005. I am not thinking very cold air will get here until sometime maybe a week after the first round of cold, but a definite pattern change will be in place and if storminess comes, well, its cold!  There are even signs something else ****COULD**** get its act together next week and cause something mixed or even some snow for higher elevations.. I am not sure I buy it yet, but the pattern slowly turns and thus storminess needs more attention than it has had

 

***** NOTE: Due to a life changing family event next Monday, I shall not be available until, at the earliest, Wednesday sometime. So, if fun and games begin, please use some of the great sites I link to off of http://www.midatlanticweather.com ! I will attempt to post EARLY Sunday, but seriously, that will be it until Wednesday or MAYBE Thursday!

 

All for now!!
