Thursday November 8 2018

This will be a quick weather post with graphics to describe what seems like a repeat of so many other recent forecasts. We have a storm on the way for yet another Friday, followed by a chilly weekend. This time it will feel like winter with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s and a wind chill. Another storm will hit us with more rain early next week and at the end we will either have the 2nd or number 1 wettest year on record.

The two storms will generate Low Pressure off of the coast in similar locations to recent storms, reinforcing the pattern and atmospheric memory. Rain will be heavy on Friday afternoon and evening. The second event will be followed by colder air and could end with snow showers. At this time it does not look like we will have local stickage but there is something to look for. If you missed my last post, My Winter Outlook 2018-19 is out. I will link that below.
