Friday November 10

The arctic front is moving through this morning along with winds between 20 and 30 mph. Temperatures will continue to drop beyond sunrise and then struggle to recover as many will have trouble getting out of the 30s this afternoon. The Lake Effect Snow Machine is gearing up and the radar shows the snow reaching central PA. As is typical, the mountains break up the snow. The chance of any chance of flakes moving farther are limited by the wind direction. There could be a stray flurry, but I would be focused more on the cold air.  You don’t have to strain your eyes to find that.

If you are ready for winter, the long range outlook supports a pattern that will sustain and early arrival of winter around Thanksgiving. The cold will hold that week, but we will have a warm up ahead of it. Also see the report on La Nina winters locally. Here is the breakdown. Reminder, we will have our hard freeze tonight and tomorrow morning. Also, Saturday is 11/11: Veterans Day (and my son’s birthday). If you are familiar with 11:11 on a clock, I will be debuting something special to celebrate it.
