We’re starting off the month of November on a warm and wet note, and this pattern will stick around for quite a while. Above-average temperatures this time of year aren’t the worst thing in the world, but it’s an annoying rain forecast — no one day will be a complete washout, and no one day will be completely dry either.
We’ve been in a little break from the showers for most of the afternoon, but another round of scattered showers will move through this evening and tonight, as shown here on the HRRR model’s radar simulation:
Once a few early-morning showers move away, we’ll see just an isolated shower chance the rest of the day. A better chance of scattered showers and some non-severe storms will develop on Friday — here’s an early look ahead at what the BAMS model thinks the radar will look like:
The overall weather pattern will remain warm and unsettled through the weekend and into early next week. High temperatures Friday through Tuesday will reach the low to mid 70s, possibly even near 80° on Sunday!
Sunday is also the driest day in the forecast, with every other day bringing us a 40%-50% chance of showers and thunderstorms. This is a tricky weather pattern, because the little “ripples” in the atmosphere that will spark the best rain chances are very hard to pin down. We’ll keep you updated day-by-day, so you can adjust any outdoor plans if Mother Nature has different ideas.
