It’s not as cold this morning as the last couple. But don’t get used to it, it won’t last. Welcome to your Saturday morning forecast for November 10, 2012!
TODAY/SUNDAY: Let me first mention that throughout the weekend we remain dry and, indeed, we should be mostly sunny. There has been some rain near and north of I-70 Friday night, but as it stayed there, we stayed dry. Here’s where the south wind that started blowing yesterday, really comes into play. I’m going with 65 on Saturday, and 69 on Sunday. Whether you have a veteran in your life or if you’re simply heading to a Veteran’s Day celebration in your area of town, this is a great weekend to celebrate what they’ve done for our nation.
MONDAY: By midday Monday a front will be just west of us. This will sweep through on Monday night. The latest models indicate very low instability, leading to an atmosphere that at the very least cannot support severe storms, and at worst is downright hostile for them. Of course, that may change (but is unlikely to), so I still encourage that you stay tuned. Look for highs on Monday around 64.
TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY: Back to reality…lows in the lower 30’s, and highs AT BEST in the upper 40’s. We might need to watch Tuesday morning for a few flakes of snow as the aforementioned storm gets outta here. Models are still a little fast with the front’s progression, and it might well be out of here before the cold air can spill in and change the leftover rain to snow. If we DO get a changeover, it will NOT be a big deal, and won’t really stick.
THURSDAY/NEXT FRIDAY: Looking dry again, and we’ll get on the backside of high pressure…temperatures should be back into the 50-53 degree range.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Follow along with us:
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, probably late. This weekend be sure to thank your local veterans. My biological dad (I use this distinction to separate him and my stepdad… I love both dearly) was in Vietnam in the 60’s and early 70’s, and I’ll be calling him up this weekend to chit-chat and remind him that I’m proud of what he did over there. Take an opportunity to do the same, whether it’s your dad, sibling, mom, wife, whichever…and take care.
