November News

By Marek Zebrowski

After a flawless farewell to October, November will start on an ominously cold note. Just to the south of New England, along a stalled long-wave trough, several storm impulses are to quickly eject from the lower Plains toward the mid-Atlantic coast during the next 48 hours. Meanwhile, an intense upper-air cyclone, stalled over the northern Great Lakes, will continue to divert arctic air down into the Mid West, causing numerous snowsqualls on the leeward shores of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, southeastern Ontario, and northwestern parts of the Empire State.

Late Friday night, with cold air aloft and waves of low pressure skirting just south of Long Island, some higher terrain in northern Connecticut might experience their first wet snowflakes of the season. By Sunday morning, as the core of cold air moves overhead, killing frost will end the growing season in Boston. Afterward, a large high pressure system will gradually expand and dominate the eastern half of the country, bringing a gradual warm up and fair skies for several days to come.

Today: Becoming partly to mostly cloudy with brisk northwesterly winds. Highs only near 50F (10C).

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with some isolated sprinkles or wet snowflakes to the south. Some light rain on the Cape and Islands. Low 36F (2C).

Saturday: Early clouds will begin to break up throughout the day. Continued unseasonably cool and blustery with a high of 48F (9C).

Sunday: Frosty morning followed by partly to mostly sunny skies. Cold lows in mid to upper 20s (-4 to -1C), highs in the 40s (5-9C).
