TRENDS for the week of 19 to 25 Nov remain close to average in most respects, although it will frequently be rather wet and windy later in the week.
TODAY will start out bright and chilly, with some local fog patches and the potential for brief intervals of black ice to form on some roads in north central counties, but cloud and then rain will arrive on stronger south to southwest winds later this morning (south, west) to early afternoon (north, east). Winds will increase to about 50-80 km/hr, with highs reaching 8 to 10 C. About 5-10 mm of rain is expected, and it may become rather foggy with the rain especially over higher parts of the north.
TONIGHT winds will moderate as they veer to a westerly direction, and a few showers are likely with lows 2 to 5 C.
SUNDAY will be partly cloudy to overcast with blustery southwest winds, cool, with a few passing showers. Highs near 8 C.
MONDAY a rather weak disturbance will arrive in the early morning hours, clearing most regions except the east coast by daybreak. This will keep overnight lows from falling much lower than 7 C. The light rain with this system, and rather moderate southerly winds, will give way to a westerly flow with variable skies and isolated showers. Highs 8-10 C.
TUESDAY will continue rather cool and windy at times with outbreaks of light rain. Lows 2-5 C and highs 8-10 C.
From WEDNESDAY to FRIDAY a number of strong lows are indicated west of the Atlantic coastal counties, inducing several intervals of strong southerly winds, that may spread over all regions but could at times be more confined to those coastal areas. Intervals of rain likely at times and temperatures through the period generally in the range of 7 to 11 C.
The pattern may relax somewhat after those storms, with temperatures perhaps falling off slightly below average briefly (4-7 C), but the first week of December also looks rather unsettled in a southwest flow and temperatures back up closer to 10 C.
