Once again the weather is going to regress by about a month this weekend. A giant high pressure system on the ground and an impressive ridge to the jet stream will bring us a sunny, warm weekend more typical of November than December. This afternoon will see a high in the lower 50s under brilliantly sunny skies. Much the same is expected tomorrow. As the surface high moves eastward we'll see a bit of a warm up on Sunday. Look for a high temperature in the mid to upper 50s which is normal for November 6th, but about ten degrees above average for early December.

The surface high moves offshore on Monday. Combine that with an upper level disturbance arriving from the West Coast and there is a potential for a nor'easter type storm by Tuesday. There is still a great deal of uncertainty in the forecast, but this currently does not look like a significant storm. For now let's say some will build-in as Monday progresses and a chance of rain on Tuesday. Monday should again be much warmer than normal with a high in the mid 50s, while Tuesday's high in the upper 40s will only be slightly above average. Warmish, dry weather will quickly return by the middle of next week.
