Sunday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. I wanted to drop in and throw a quickie update at you guys before we wrap up the weekend. As you know, it’s a very busy week of weather ahead of us with rain and snow chances showing up.

I’ve been talking lately about how all the energy is not bundling and coming out together this week, leading to a weaker first system and a much stronger second system. Watch how the trough digs in, but leaves behind energy that  turns into a strong upper level low. That low then moves our way by Wednesday and Thursday…

I’ll get back to that upper low in a moment, but let’s talk a little bit about the first system coming through Monday and early Tuesday. It’s a much weaker system, leading to lighter precipitation that zips in and out very quickly. Rain develops Monday, with some wet snows showing up on the western edge from Monday evening into Tuesday morning…

As you can see, the precipitation tries to clear out pretty quickly on Tuesday as cold temps continue. The reason that system is weaker and faster is because the one coming behind it is the bully on the weather block. It’s pushing it out of the way so it can move through here for the middle and end of the week.

The track of the upper level low is going to be interesting to watch. Directly under that low and just west of it can pick up on accumulating snows. That will then likely turn into another nor’easter…

The ICON was the first model to show this whole two storm scenario several days ago. Here’s what the latest run looks like…

It’s fascinating to see all these winter weather systems already showing up in the second week of November. Any kind of flake action you get this time of year should be viewed as a bonus. We’ve already had the first deck duster and we have up to 3 more winter makers possibly impacting our weather over the next week.

Enjoy the rest of your evening and take care.
