Saturday November 4

Baltimore hit 77ºF on Friday and Seattle had their earliest snowfall on record. There is an imbalance but we are trending to the other side of normal. A cold front came through and you will definitely notice it when you step outside today. Temperatures have dropped and will struggle to reach the upper 50s later today. While there is rain on the way this evening, the daylight hours will stay dry for most of us. Drizzle and showers may end the weekend with a warm up, and then we set the stage for more rain early next week. The maps below break down the details, even a chance for flurries next week. But first, I must share the obligatory reminder about the end of Daylight Saving Time.

Clocks back AND change batteries in your smoke/CO2 detectors

This is only a big deal if you love snow and just want to see something fall. No stickage expected, but the atmosphere will be cold enough to support some frozen stuff. That is represented here by the 1000mb to 500mb thickens below 540 dm

PJ bottoms still inside out- They have to be to help bring on the snow.

Outlook Colder To End November

You might say this is just the calendar proving itself, but the jet steam is supporting the cold surge to flow in and sustain itself for our region by Nov 20 and late coast Thanksgiving.



Temperature Outlook

Note that this forecast does not reach out as far as that jet stream map above. It will get colder Thanksgiving Week.
