November 3rd, 2012 Forecast

For tonight, still that chill lingering in the air.  Lows hovering around 40-degrees close to the city, dropping to the mid-30's to the north and west and the upper 30's to the south and east.  Wind out of the west at a fairly tame 5 to 10 mph.  Winds kick back up tomorrow.  Skies still show the cloudy remnants of Sandy, but we'll see more sun peeking through.  Highs in the lower 50's in the metro and to the south and east and into the upper 40's to the north and west.  Winds still westerly at 5 to 15 mph.

For the week ahead, although remaining cool most of the days look like adequate clean-up weather.  Sunday, temperatures still hover around 50-degrees under mostly sunny skies.  Monday, we start to feel those chilly nights as the warmth from the mostly sunny skies escapes at night, dropping us into the lower 30's on Monday.  Tuesday, we start watching the skies again.  We'll see skies cloud up and even a few scattered showers late Tuesday as a possible nor'easter comes towards the area.  We'll have to watch the models again, with the Euro showing a closer to the coast track and the GFS takes it more out to sea.  Both models do show some precipitation in our area, but we have to watch this one.  Again, not anything like what we saw earlier this week, but still - any wind and rain may exacerbate problems that exist already.

Thursday, we start drying out again, but still we can't shake the cooler temperatures, still hovering around 50-degrees.  We get above 50-degrees next Friday, under partly cloudy skies.  The light at the end of the tunnel?  I see warmer temperatures on the horizon for next weekend.  Could 60-degrees be in the works?  We'll see how it plays out the next couple days.
