Another cold night across our area…but there’s a bit of a warmup, albeit a brief one, for the weekend! Welcome to your Thursday morning forecast for November 8, 2012!
TODAY: The nor’easter continues up the east coast and should eject east later in the day or tonight…which is good news for the damage zone in NJ/NY/CT. Here at home, we may reach the middle 50’s, around 54, after lows in the low 30’s. In some spots, I won’t rule out some fog and/or freezing fog around this morning mainly west and north of the city. Otherwise, we’ll stay dry!
FRIDAY-SUNDAY: Okay, I’m having to make adjustments from here on. Let me first mention that throughout this period we will remain dry and, indeed, should be mostly sunny. This forecast has, however, gotten warmer particularly into the first half of the weekend. We go into Friday with a southerly wind. Temperatures should bounce into the upper 50’s with this, around 58. That continues on Saturday, and here’s where the increase really comes into play. I’m now going with 65 on Saturday, and 69 on Sunday.
MONDAY: Now…it’s getting interesting! Monday a front will be just west of us. This will sweep through on Monday night. With the front…many of the models bring a squall line. I’m inclined to agree, but right now I don’t see much severe weather coming from this. Of course, that may change so stay tuned. Look for highs on Monday around 66.
TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY: Back to reality…lows in the lower 30’s, and highs AT BEST in the upper 40’s. Might need to watch Tuesday morning for a few flakes of snow as the aforementioned storm gets outta here. Again, that’s something to stay tuned about.

A REQUEST TO OUR READERS: The Red Cross still needs a lot of help. They deal with a lot of disasters, but Sandy was a once in a lifetime event for the northeast…and the damage is extensive (and this week’s nor’easter probably hasn’t helped). They need help to get the residents of NY, NJ, PA, MD, DE, and CT back on their feet. I encourage you, please go to redcross.org and make a donation, or text “SANDY” to 90999 and a $10 donation will be added to your phone bill. Also, a Sunday post I wrote has information about donating to Matthew 25 Ministries if you want to send actual supplies to the coast, or to volunteer to organize supplies. Let’s get the northeast back on their feet.
NEXT UPDATE: Our next update will be tomorrow morning. Until then, take care!
