What a weekend. The great weather continues today with loads of sunshine. We got off to a cold start but afternoon temperatures will be well into the 60s. Would not be surprised if the airport touched 67 or 68 today.
November is obviously off to a very warm start, not only here but across the nation as a whole. Temperatures compared to average so far:
Changes are finally on the way. Election Day will bring increasing clouds and a threat for showers toward sunset and as the polls close.
In the wake of that front, we expect a brisk and colder day Wednesday with a shower possible, mainly in the morning. Temperatures mainly in the 40s Wednesday.
After a tranquil Thursday, the next front will track our way for the end of the week….it’ll be a strong one but will not be able to wring out much more than a shower on Friday.
Brisk and cold for high school football playoff games Friday evening. There might be snow flurries seen across NE Ohio and western PA Friday night into Saturday morning. Not looking for anything more than cosmetic coatings on windshields and what not.
Saturday will be the coldest day of the season so far with temperatures not much higher than 40 and wind chills closer to freezing.
No measureable snow yet at the airport and we are overdue. The average date of first measureable snow is the 4th of November but as you can see there is quite a variance from year to year.
Interesting that the latest date occurred in 1995. 1995-1996 is one of the “analog” years in our Winter Forecast. In other words, a year that we expect this winter to haver some similarities to. Speaking of which….
