Sunday November 12

After a record low temperature yesterday and highs staying in the 30s, we get a little recovery today. While we will be back into he 40s, cloud cover will limit the rise and signal another system. Some light rain showers will arrive this evening and spotty rain into Monday morning. some wintry mix will be as close as Harrisburg. Then we should have a quiet and mild week with a few arctic blasts to reach us Thanksgiving week.

Note: I will be working to finish my winter outlook and post that this evening.

More clouds but it will be a little milder, while staying below average

Light Rain: This Evening Through Monday Morning

A Wintry Mix will be confined in the mountains near and west of Harrisburg, PA

Looking Ahead: Animation

Most of the upcoming week should be dry, but next weekend a larger storm will usher in the next arctic blast. Notice the snow (blue) across the Great Lakes, northern New York, and New England. The end of this animation shows a mix for our region after Thanksgiving Day. I DO NOT subscribe to promoting this as models tend to lose their accuracy that far out in time. However, I do agree that our trend will be much colder.


Turning Colder

The Jet Stream shows surge of colder air next Saturday.
