Tuesday morning November 14 temperatures
Tuesday November 14

Happy National Pickle Day! Temperatures this morning are down in the 30s with areas of frost and patchy fog. There could be some spots that are a little slippery, mainly on bridges and overpasses. The fog is thanks to the moisture ground from yesterday’s rain. Otherwise it will be a quiet and mild day getting back to near 50ºF. Next up will be some rain showers Wednesday night, and a larger storm this weekend. At this point it looks like rain on Saturday that will end with colder air and possible flurries or snow showers on Sunday. More below….

 Afternoon High Temps

Still below average but mild….

Tuesday November 14 High Temperatures


Rain Showers Wednesday Evening

Here is another system showing showers tomorrow evening that should move out Thursday morning. Mostly overnight.

Weekend Storm

This brings in rain on Saturday. The GFS Model is faster that some other models, but I am sticking with this to focus on the accuracy or continued error.   The trend shows Saturday turning wet in the afternoon with steady, moderate rain. But colder air will spill in on the back side. This will open up the Lake Effect Snow, and some showers or flurries could reach the norther suburbs Sunday.




Extended Outlook

Thanksgiving Storm

I do NOT like to lock in on a forecast a week away, but we should pay attention since it is a holiday.  There will be rain that might end with a period of snow. Notice, there is a question mark highlighted in there…

Note that the error I have noticed in the modeling has been to shift storms east and run a little faster.  So I will reference this plot as we get close to track the trend.
