October was a very warm month and with an average temperature of 52.9 degrees it turned to be the third warmest on record. November seemed to be following October's example as the first four days all averaged out above normal and then all of a sudden everything changed. Unseasonably cold air moved into New England Sunday night and with clouds dominating the sky on Monday temperatures were hard pressed to climb out of the 30s at most locations. I expect the clouds to melt away tonight and with a ridge of high pressure building in look for mostly sunny skies on Tuesday. Temperatures are going to remain well below normal topping out in the low 40s at best. The cold air mass is going to stick around into Wednesday at which point an area of low pressure will be moving our way from the south. Morning sunshine will give way to increasing cloudiness in the afternoon with a mix of rain, sleet or snow moving in Wednesday night. The low is expected to intensify off the New Jersey coast Wednesday night with warmer air wrapping around the system. This promises to change the precipitation to mostly rain across the south with snow or sleet continuing in the mountains and foothills as we head into Thursday. By Friday the storm should be well east of our region with sunshine returning and warmer temperatures as well.
