The past few months have been one of the quietest weather patterns in the Northeast that I can remember. From the hurricane season bust to the developing moderate drought conditions, there has not been a heck of a lot to talk about. As we suggested a couple of weeks ago, the end of October was relatively cold, and there was a storm at the start of November. Looking down the road into the first two weeks of November, the pattern looks fairly benign and rather easy to predict. The temperature will drop from very mild to pretty cool by the end of the weekend. It will stay dry and get milder through the middle of next week.
The only shot at rain next week is from Thursday into Friday as another system similar to today’s moves through the Eastern United States. That cold front will be followed by more roller coaster temperatures. It will turn cool early next weekend before warming up late in the weekend or on Veterans Day. That week does not look particularly wet, either. Overall, the pattern should continue to be warmer and drier than normal. We will eventually see a flip to an active pattern, but that’s not in the cards through mid-November.
