Forecast For Sunday, November 10, 2013

A cold front will move through the region on Sunday Afternoon. A decent southwest breeze will develop ahead of the front. This will then be followed by a gusty, west-northwest wind after the front passes through. Partly sunny skies are expected on Sunday. Moisture and instability with the front should be very limited. 

Sunshine, followed by an increase in clouds is anticipated for Monday. An arctic front will cross the region on Monday Night into Tuesday Morning. Scattered snow and rain showers are expected as the front passes through. Much colder air will filter into the region on Tuesday with high temperatures expected only to be in the 40s. A few flurries or a snow shower are possible. It is expected to turn blustery in the wake of the front. 

It has been fairly well advertised that some of the computer modeling a few days ago suggested that an area of low pressure will come up the coastline during the middle portion of the upcoming week. Within the past day, the modeling has suggested that this arctic shot of air will settle well into the Southern United States. This would suppress the storm track well to the south and the area of low pressure would be blocked from turning up the coast leaving our region with dry and cold weather. Eventually, an offshore storm is expected to form. Based on the latest model trends, we believe a Canadian area of high pressure will build into our area during the middle part of the week and that this area of high pressure will hold firm. There is a slight window of opportunity for this to change, especially if the fresh arctic airmass modifies and doesn’t progress as far to the south, but the chance for a storm appears to be waning. We will continue to follow the progression of the arctic blast.
