Positive Looking Forecast
Posted by Chris Lambert
For the first time in two weeks, I don't have a hurricane or a major nor'easter in the forecast! Whew... we deserve a much needed break. The reason for a quiet week is thanks to a return to a +NAO(positive North Atlantic Oscillation). As that indexed pressure pattern goes from negative to positive, the atmospheric "block", that has driven storms up the East Coast, breaks down, and we return to milder and quieter weather for a week. The only rain I have on the 7-day forecast is with a cool front on Tuesday as showers come through.
It's not to say you can't get storms in a +NAO, it's just that the chances of one are lower. Last winter, the NAO was in the + phase a lot. Two winters ago? You guessed it... in the - phase a lot.
Ok, enough technical stuff... just give you the forecast right?
More sun than clouds today, breezy, temps near 50. More clouds than sun tomorrow with lighter winds. Near 50 again. Early clouds Sunday break for sun, near 60 in the afternoon, including a 58 degree kickoff temps for the Pats vs Bills game. Great tailgating weather overall. We'll continue to see nice weather on Veteran's Day with highs in the mid to upper 60s! No snow left after this stretch.
Enjoy the weekend.
