I hope you had your fill of family, food, and football on Thanksgiving. I sure did, and it was a great day. The weather pattern looks pretty interesting from coast to coast over the next couple of weeks. In the last Long Range Forecast we talked about a huge Alaskan ridge that would help to spill cold air into the United States. It looks like the brunt of that cold air will be in the Western United States in the next couple of weeks. Eventually, some of it will head east. (hint, hint for the winter forecast which will be out soon)
In the meantime, we’ll keep our eye on a sneaky system that could clip eastern New England with snow and/or rain on Tuesday/Wednesday. The GFS model is out to sea with it, but the European keeps it close enough for some precipitation. The following system late next week looks milder with rain for Southern New England. The last few runs of the European and GFS show a significant storm around December 12. I usually don’t get too excited about a 348 hour forecast, but I’ll be looking to this range of the forecast for the next few runs to see if it’s still there.
No video today, but all the graphics are here for you to take a look at.
