Saturday November 7 2020
The short version of our weather is that it will be very nice this weekend. We’ve already seen some morning fog, and a quick warm up. The afternoon will be back to the 70s for most of the region, and more fog will develop overnight. Then repeat on Sunday. BWI hit 75ºF yesterday, and it should be able to do that again, and again.
We need to focus on that ‘Zombie’ Storm Eta in the Caribbean Sea. It is growing and should be declared a Tropical Storm ‘again’ today. Warnings are in place for Cuba and Watches for south Florida. That storm will play a role in our weather during the work week.
Saturday Morning Surface Weather
We get quiet weather and warm afternoons.
Eta just showing up on the map (bottom) and will send rain well ahead of the center. That is what we need to watch this into next week.
Eta Tropical Satellite Loop
National Hurricane Center Update: Saturday Morning
- Winds: 35 mph
- Moving: East-Northeast at 13 mph
- TS Warning in Cuba
- TS Watch in South Florida
Watching the center of the storm, it will pass south Florida then enter the Gulf of Mexico.
Watching the moisture, upper level winds will bring the bulk of rain well north to link up with a cold front right over our region on Wednesday.
The GFS Model has been doing a pretty good job with these long range systems. Here is a look at the call for Wednesday morning continuing to bring in moderate to heavy rain for most of our region. It also suggests there could be some thunderstorms in the southern part of our region and Delmarva.
The European Model is showing the rain bulk of the rain a little slower, which is why the plot here for the same time is a little farther west. Both call for Wednesday turning wet and lasting into Thursday.
How Much Rain?
It is too early to give specifics, but this pattern brings in the potential for 1 to 3 inches.
I will start posting rain forecast maps tomorrow.
Back To Our Temperature Forecast
We often verify temps WARMER than the models show in late season patterns like this. That’s why 75ºF or higher is possible.
While the rain and cold front will be in our region for a few days, the cold air may not fully arrive until Friday and next weekend. That’s when we bring back the pattern for near to slightly below average/seasonal temperatures.
