THE SUN COMES BACK OUT ON TUESDAY… DRY WEATHER SHOULD LAST MOST OF THE WEEK… TEMPERATURES MAY COOL DOWN DURING MID-WEEK

After a gloomy and drizzly Monday, the sun should make its return on Tuesday. As it looks now, Tuesday may turn out to be a very nice day with seasonal temperatures. On Wednesday,  forecasters believe that temperatures will take a bit of a tumble. Dry weather should continue most of the week. Even though we’ve had quite a bit of clouds of late, there really wasn’t much rain here locally. The last precipitation maker passed by to our west which was similar to the last few systems. So, it looks like a quiet week of weather lies ahead with no major storm systems in sight. Let’s see if that changes next week. November has the potential to be very stormy as increasingly cold air masses begin to invade the nation. As the nights grow longer and the angle of the sun gets lower and lower, the cold air masses across Canada and Siberia get colder and colder. At the same time, the jet stream becomes stronger and its track on average is further south than it is in October. The clash of very different air masses results in more cyclogensis along the frontal boundaries. The low pressure cyclones can become quite intense and you can see this just by looking at the number of isobars that surround the low pressure areas. The difference in pressure between these storm systems and the high pressure areas results in higher wind speeds. The number of windy days increases in November due to the strength of the weather systems that move across the nation and the overall pressure gradient between systems. As stormy as November can be, it can also be quite nice at times. There are usually several nice days in November.
