November 5 2018

This Monday starts off with rain and yet another storm following the path of Hurricane Micheal. I just needed to point out the reinforcement of the atmospheric memory and storm track.  It’s a pattern we are in and likely to carry over into winter when things can get fun. For now it is just another rainy day and it will be heavy this morning. There is a chance for local flooding in heavy downpours

Not to this Monday any ore profoundly, but this is the last day of the year with sunset at 5 PM.

Another system, will follow with a strong cold front and potential for severe storms in the middle of Election Day. That will be the warmest day of the week as very cold air wil be moving in and truly setting in this weekend. Here is the latest rain timeline.

The next event will be Friday but then clear out for a much colder weekend. The chance of snow appears to be limited to the mountains and well north. But it will turn very chilly.
