Forecast: Another Sunny, Rare November Day In The 70s

I’ll start the morning forecast with a note of caution. Sunny, 70 degree weather in early November can be hazardous to your health. This might be a good time to use a sick day. High pressure overhead and a mild start to the day will each combine to bring a flawless Tuesday to the area.

This is one of those days where it will be tough to not say outside a bit longer at lunch, and unfortunately, by the time you arrive home late this afternoon it will be dark.

November days in the 70s are quite rare. There hasn’t been one this century, and you’d have to go back to 1990 to find one. The one in the '90s is also the record high of 76 we're likely to match today.

A cooler flow of ocean air takes over Wednesday bringing temperatures back in line with the calendar. However, this doesn’t last. The warm stuff returns for the end of the week with Friday seeing the peak of warmth. Many more spots will reach 70 or even a degree better on Friday. This isn’t easy to do in November with under 11 hours of daylight.

There might be a few showers Thursday night with the surge of warmth, but I do expect Friday to be dry, despite quite a few clouds around the region.

A stronger cold front crosses the area Saturday, and then it turns chilly for Sunday. Our stretch of frostless weather ends Monday morning with most areas back around or slightly below the freezing mark. The chill won’t last long. I already see some warming for later next week, though likely not as warm as this week.

Today: Sunny and unseasonably warm. Highs 65-70.

Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 45.

Wednesday: Sunny, with a high near 65 inland, 58 at the coast.

Thursday: Mostly sunny,with thicker clouds and a shower late in the day. Highs 65-69.

Friday: Mostly cloudy, with a high 68-72.

Saturday: Partly sunny, with a high near 60.
