WeatherWatcher: Weekly Weather, Warmer, then cold coming.

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

  • The remainder of the week forecast, cold air is arriving.
  • Snow event not likely in November
  • Last week's Highlights
  • Weather data
The remainder of the week will be cooling off. We have a cold showery air mass moving in from the Gulf of Alaska. This is the second time this type of air mass has come in, last one was around October 21st - 23rd. We won't receive much rain out of this system, but it'll be cold with lows dipping down to the low-mid 30's. It's possible we may have our first frost or freeze, so it's a good time to get things winterized and bring in those frost sensitive plants. Make sure those outdoor water faucets are protected against freezing temperatures. Some wet snow flakes might be mixed in with some heavier rain showers.

Significant November snow? Probably not this year:
We are looking at a couple of cold shots for November, however I do not think we will see any significant snow events as a result. I've been monitoring the cold air in Western Canada, and some of the Pacific storms have pushed waves of cold air out of Western Canada and into the Mid-west.  Right around Thanksgiving and the weekend afterwords we may have nights dropping below freezing. Now, there may be some moisture in the area during that time which may lead to some wet snow overnight or early morning, but again nothing major. December looks a lot more threatening, I'll have more on that later.

Last week's Highlights:
We had a pretty strong plume of tropical moisture make its way into our region last Tuesday and Wednesday making up for all the missed rainfall in September. Tuesday and Wednesday alone we received 4.93 inches.

Last week:
High temperature: 59.9°F (Monday)
Low temperature: 47.9°F (Saturday)
Rainiest day: 2.56 inches (Tuesday)
Total rainfall: 7.31 inches
Warmest day: 55.6°F (Monday)
Coldest day: 50.1°F (Saturday)
Average temperature: 53.7°F (6.2°F warmer than normal)
3-Year average temperature for the week: 47.5°F

Warmest and coldest days are based on average temperature of the entire day, starting at midnight. All other averages are based on the whole week, starting Saturday morning at midnight. All weather data unless otherwise noted is sourced from Carl's Shoreline Weather Station.
