CONNECTICUT WEATHER’S LATEST WEATHER DISCUSSION

November 10, 2019                       9:00 AM   

     High pressure shifting east in response to a strong zonal jet will allow a south to southwest flow to moderate our unseasonably cold airmass today and tomorrow. The Jet stream, however will be delivering a plume of mid-level moisture down stream of a developing low in the rockies, and as a result more cloudiness will be expected through the day today as highs reach the mid and upper 40s – close to 50 near the coast. A warm front will briefly move north of the region tomorrow, which may allow the cloud shield to thin out enough for some more sunshine and milder conditions to develop, with highs well into the 50s. Low pressure in the west will swing through the Ohio Valley and intensify overhead on Tuesday. Initially this is a mild storm track with rain expected to overspread the area early Tuesday morning. A potent cold front is expected to move through with the back edge of this storm Tuesday afternoon – enough for the rain to end as a brief mix or even a period of wet snow. Typically the arrival of dry air in these situations keeps the overall impact very minor, but these details will be fine tuned over the next day. The core of the cold air will swing through on Wednesday with sunshine and highs struggling to reach the freezing mark. Generally cool, dry and quiet weather will end off the weak. The only exception is a weak clipper-type disturbance modeled to move through on Friday, but moisture looks extremely limited so will keep the forecast dry.
