Record Warmth Possible This Weekend...

November 4, 2022 // Article by: Brad Miller

Well, the first weekend of November is upon us, but it's going to feel more like the end of September here in the Northeast.  High pressure will locate itself off the East Coast for the next few days and this will keep a warm, south to southwesterly flow of air along the I-95 corridor.  And despite some cloud cover (especially interior Northeast), temperatures this weekend will be 10 - 20 degrees above normal.  Not only will that put afternoon highs well into the 70s and even some low 80s (closer to 70° on Long Island and southeastern New England), it could result in a few records being tied or broken.  Before we check out those records, here is a look at the 500 mb map for Saturday afternoon.  You can clearly see the trough in the western United States while a large ridge dominates the eastern third of the country.

So here is a look at the average highs for this first week of November along with record highs for both Saturday and Sunday along the I-95 corridor.

And it looks like the unseasonably warm weather will continue into Monday before a cold fronts sweeps across the Northeast Monday night.  This will cool it down for Tuesday, but nothing too drastic, just more seasonable for this time of the year.
