Weekend Weather ThreadNovember 3rd, 2012 at 1:38 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Update: G.R. dipped to 31 Saturday morning. Lots of cloud cover this Saturday. I’m working the evening shift today. We have local news from 7 – 8 PM after the Notre Dame and Michigan State football games. Also, after Sandy, parts of New Jersey, E. PA and New York could see some snow. Since we’ve already had a frost or freeze, the National Weather Service isn’t issuing Freeze Warnings or Frost Advisories anymore this season, but there will be frost and temperatures a little below freezing each of the next several mornings. If you don’t mind it a little cooler than average, the next several days will be nice for outdoor yard work or events. The overnight NAM model has showers coming earlier (Monday night), the GFS holds any rain off until Tuesday night into Wednesday (which is the forecast I have out now). It looks like after a cooler than average first week of November, temperatures warm up to at least the mid-upper 50s by Friday of next week. The GFS goes out to 16 days and doesn’t have much snow…maybe a very little about the 13th or 14th. Afternoon temperatures should be in the mid 40s for the next few days.
Check out this newspaper report of SIX FEET of snow in West Virginia. Click on the pictures at the link. Here’s video of the W. Virginia snow. Ireland’s had an early snow. Dublin was 2.6 degrees cooler than average in October. Fourteen people have died in an early snowstorm and cold snap in Poland. Check out the heavy snow in France. The article says “It’s winter before it should be!” A “short blast of very cold Arctic air” brought snow to the United Kingdom. Here’s early snow in Stuttgart, Germany…”Record early snow in the Alps of Austria” (neat video). Here’s snowcover in N. America.
Here’s an animated loop of Hurricane Sandy, with the center coming onshore near Atlantic City, New Jersey – then heading into Pennsylvania.
