Early Monday AM November 14th Update – Quiet Start to the Work/School Week

Good early Monday morning, everyone. Another weekend has come and gone, but we ended it on a pretty good note. We had to start yesterday morning cold with lows in the lower to middle 30s, but we rebounded nicely to the lower 60s for afternoon highs. We still don’t have a lot going on. Early this morning, we hardly have any cloud cover and nothing is showing up on the radar below…

In fact, the skies last night and early this morning were perfect to get a good glimpse of the moon. Not only was it a full moon, it was our supermoon this month. This one was a bit special because this supermoon is the closest to the Earth it has been since 1948. Even though it’s still over 221,000 miles away, it’s bigger and brighter than a normal full moon. The next time the moon will be this close will be in the year 2034. So, be sure you reserve your seats for that. LOL!

Back to Earth, now. What are we keeping an eye on? We have two cold fronts on the map. The front to our immediate west will work through today. The other front will make our upcoming weekend very interesting…

This first cold front won’t really do much for us. All it will do is bring some cloud cover in for today and shift our wind out of the west by the afternoon. Even with those changes, we’re still looking at a good day today. After we start in the middle 40s, we’ll have partly sunny skies for most of the day with highs around 64°…

We stay quiet for Tuesday through Thursday. Highs will range between the upper 60s and lower to middle 70s. Thursday will be mild again, but we’ll see skies turn partly sunny. That will hint at our weekend storm system. It starts working in early on Friday. So early, in fact, we’ll have early morning highs around 63°. Thanks to t-storms, mostly cloudy skies and colder air that will rapidly want to work in behind the front, temperatures look to fall throughout the day on Friday…

After we get that front through, the upcoming weekend may be the coolest (or coldest) of the season so far. Saturday looks quiet, but we’ll have lows in the upper 30s and highs only in the upper 40s. Going into Sunday morning, that should be our coldest morning of the fall season yet. If I were a gambling man, with projected lows in the upper 20s to near 30°, I would say we should see our first widespread freeze Sunday morning…

After we get past the cold start on that Sunday, we’ll have highs back into the upper 40s. Beyond that storm system, we should stay fairly active going into Thanksgiving. Doug has you covered there, along with the rest of the long-range forecast, over on headypattern.com

Have a great Monday!

LONG RANGE FORECAST IS BELOW BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN:

Here is your 7-day forecast:

Remember that you can sign up for WeatherCall by clicking the WeatherCall link at the top of the page. WeatherCall, in our opinion, is the best tool on the market to keep you safe during severe weather.

Also we have our free WEATHER APP that lets you access our forecast, blog, radar and weather alerts. I think it’s a must if you own an Apple or Android phone.

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM

Next Week:  The first half of the week should be on the cold side with the second half of the week warming back up.  Rain chances working in for Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
