Entering a dry week in late October seems like a good time to preview the projected levels of precipitation from NOAA for the upcoming November to January period. Our area of the mid-Atlantic is expected to received above normal amounts of precip this winter. Readers of this blog may have read yesterday that NOAA is also calling for milder weather. Being wetter and warmer than normal does not, however, preclude snow. As with all winter weather systems timing is everything.
As we complete the month of October we can expect today to bring continued cool weather under partly sunny skies. It should be less windy than yesterday with high temperatures reaching just above 60 degrees.
Tomorrow should be the coolest day of the week under sunny skies when some areas may not get out of the 50’s.
A quite noticeable warming trend should be taking pace beginning on Tuesday. In fact Salisbury may reach 70 degrees on Wednesday while the area is expected to bask in the mid 70’s by week’s end.
