CONNECTICUT WEATHER’S LATEST WEATHER DISCUSSION

November 15, 2019                       7:30 AM   

     Westerly flow ahead of a cold front in northern New England will result in a milder day today, but of course it won’t last long! Expect sunny skies with highs reaching the upper 40s to near 50. The trailing cold front will finally move through tonight with little weather impact, but a significant drop in temperature and moisture. Canadian high pressure will build in behind the front ensuring a dry, cold weekend with sunshine and highs in the 30s and 40s. The next round of unsettled weather looks to arrive early next week as a deep area of low pressure developing off the southeast coast will slowly begins to interact with an upper trough associated with the northern branch of the jet stream moving in from the west. This will cause the system to graze our region on Monday with some rain showers, perhaps beginning as a brief mix well inland – does not look impactful. That upper trough will pass through and eventually to our east in the middle of next week. The timing in which it moves east will be a determining factor in how close another low pressure system gets to us on Wednesday – with moist guidance keeping it offshore now. Skies will briefly clear out for Thursday before another disturbance arrives in the end of next week – also not looking particularly strong.
