Some holes in the overcast are possible in some places today.
Some larger holes in the overcast may occur later this evening, but they should quickly fill back in tonight. Some fog is possible
Highs today will run 47-53, followed by 38-42 tonight.
We may end up cloudy to mostly cloudy much of Friday. Clearing is possible late in the day with highs 47-53.
Saturday looks brighter with skies becoming mostly sunny & highs 48-54 after 30-34 in the morning with frost & some fog.
Sunday should feature increasing clouds & potential of a few late showers with a cold front. It will become windy late in the day from the northwest with gusts to 35 mph. After highs 52-57, we should fall rapidly through the 40s in the evening.
Lows Sunday night will drop to 29-33.
Meanwhile, storm will be tracking from Texas to the South. Our rainfall coverage Sunday is only 30%, but it will be widespread across the southern part of the state.
Howling winds are likely Monday with sunstained north to northwest winds at 20-30 mph & gusts 40-50 mph.
Significant snowfall is possible over Ohio, eastern & central Kentucky to eastern Tennessee & the higher elevations of far northeast Georgia. That with gusts to 50-60 mph will result in big impacts in that entire area.
Meanwhile, severe weather is likely in the Deep South to coastal Carolinas & then eastern New England.
A strong, long-track tornado or two is possible in the Deep South to coastal Carolinas while a QLCS squall line is possible over parts of the Northeast with unseasonable warmth
I looks like a situation of 32 in Ohio to eastern Tennessee & 60s to Vermont, New Hampshire & Maine.
On Tuesday 1 p.m., it could actually be 36 at Atlanta with some flakes & 63 at Montreal, Quebec & 68 at Portland, Maine with rain & storms with severe weather risk from the squall line.
Here, it looks like some snow showers then flurries. Some very minor accumulation is possible at this point with highs Monday at 33-37 with 23-26 & a few flurries Monday night.
Given the high winds, any snow showers will be wind-driven & blown about.
Tuesday should still windy with gusts to 43 mph & highs 33-38 with partly to mostly cloudy skies then lows 22-26.
Winds diminish Wednesday with more in the way of sun with highs 36-42 with 20s Wednesday night.
Thursday & Friday look partly cloudy with highs near 40 to the 40s.
Doesn't look like any rainfall until around December 9 as we warm toward the 50s.
Overall first 10 days of December will begin to trend warmer than normal once again here, while the cold air will erode in the South.
This is a positive PNA pattern with the cold Southeast & Mid-Atlantic to as far north as Ohio Valley & big time warmth northern Plains & part of the Corn Belt to western Great Lakes.
It is a bit of an El Nino look-a-like pattern.
It is also drier than normal here for that time (wetter Southeast & East November 30-December 2, though).
Beyond that, it looks very warm mid to late December. A few near/record warm days &/or nights are possible.
Rainfall is a bit above normal for the time with risk of a day or two of severe weather risk.
Some data suggests severe weather outbreak over the South & some severe risk as far north as our area Christmas Eve-Day like 2015 (squall line raked Indiana with severe weather risk December 24, 2015 with severe weather across the South).
The first 7 days of January features what could be a big snow from a Nor'Easter in the northeast with blast of cold air & below normal temperatures.
Here, we are trending above normal.
I think our precipitation will be near normal, but below normal in Illinois to Iowa & Missouri.
Note the above normal precipitation in the Northeast. This may be tied up in a big storm with the cold there.
