We start our second weekend of November with the feel of late December.
Temperatures this morning starting off 15 to 25°, pretty close to record lows for Nov. 9. But we have good news, the wind is much lighter today, and we have plenty of sunshine with temperatures getting back to 40° in southern New England. We are still in the 30s in northern New England, wind is more from the southwest at 10 to 15 mph.
Ski areas continue to make snow at higher elevations, and it’s opening day for Sunday River in Maine.
U.S. & World
We have another cold night in store with a big, bright beaver moon tonight, temperatures once again fall back down to the teens and 20s.
It won’t be quite as cold though along the coast, where we may have a few showers developing from Cape Cod to the coast of Maine with a little upper level disturbance going by, with a surface warm front, getting our temperatures back to 50° tomorrow afternoon. It’ll be partly sunny with highs in the 40s north. Wind tomorrow picks from the south up to 15 to 20 mph with stronger gusts.
Low pressure passing north of New England tomorrow night will push a cold front in our direction, but it looks like our Veterans Day should still be on the warmer side least in the morning, with temperatures getting back to 50° south once again. But the front will produce some rain or snow in northern New England during the afternoon that may spread south too.
Tuesday is a tough call as we have a front over New England, a lot like what happened on Thursday with snow north, and rain south. Cold air will be pushing toward the south and rain may change to snow before ending Wednesday morning. Temperatures falling through the 40s and 30s Tuesday, and holding in the 20s north and 30s south Wednesday. Snowfall amounts will be similar to what we just saw with several inches in the mountains, and maybe a coating all the way to the coast. This is still just a rough estimate and will have to fine-tune as we get closer here in our First Alert 10-Day Forecast.
