Forecast: November Enters With Fleeting Warmth

There is another cold shot of air coming for the weekend, but until then, temperatures are actually going to be on the upswing.

High pressure continues to reign across the region with abundant sunshine and clear skies at night. This will keep our weather dry into the middle of the week — and perhaps through most of Thursday.

The air mass over us will moderate allowing temperatures to increase today over yesterday, as well as tomorrow over today. Actual highs Wednesday and Thursday will reach the 60s.

On Thursday, a storm system will approach from the west. At first, there will just be a chance of showers in the afternoon and then a steady rain in the evening and the first part of the overnight. There could be some heavier downpours as well. I will have more details tomorrow.

Behind this system, colder air will move in for the weekend. I think it's going to be similar to last weekend on Saturday, with highs near 50. There will be plenty of sunshine both days, but unlike last weekend, Sunday will also be cool.

The weather pattern is becoming more active and moving faster. This means more weather activity in terms of possible precipitation and faster temperature changes. There are some signs things will become stormier after the middle of the month, but it is too early to know how it will play out here.
