to get weekday updates from The Weather Channel and our meteorologists.
Here we are, already in November, a month known for some pretty dynamic weather. This weekend is no exception, with some big changes on the way.
We asked some of our expert meteorologists, or “mets” as we like to call them, to sit down and chat about this weekend’s weather, what’s in play and what else they’re watching.
we talked about the big chill and yet more rain in New York City. This week?
: One thing I’m really excited about for the weather this weekend is that it’s gonna warm up again in Atlanta. I live in Atlanta. I think it was 27 degrees Thursday morning at my house. Not only do I hate the cold, the thing is when it gets cold it gets really dry, too.
: For places in the South, break out your T-shirts again. We’ve got 70s and 80s, and especially into next week a slew of 80s are possible in cities like Dallas, New Orleans and Atlanta, which should make Ari happy.
Domenica Davis: New York City, this is your weekend. This is the first weekend in about eight weekends that no rain is in. And even better than that, temperatures are going to be in the upper 50s, low 60s. We have the New York marathon on Sunday and it is going to be perfect running weather.
This warm weather switcheroo gives us a chance to talk about an interesting weather term, right?
Chris: The weather pattern this weekend will shift to what meteorologists callwhich simply means the jet stream will be flowing in a flat west-to-east fashion across the country. That’s a change from this past week, where the jet stream was amplified north to south, which allowed shivering temperatures to grip the central and eastern U.S. The upshot of this zonal flow pattern is that rain and snow will be confined to the nation’s northern tier, from the Northwest to Northern Plains. It will also help temperatures warm up above average in many cities east of the Rockies, like we already mentioned.
Not every place will be warm and sunny, of course. Who’s in for some not-so-nice conditions?
: One area to watch for interesting weather this weekend is the Pacific Northwest where rounds of wet weather will pummel the region. Much of the region is in so this rain is generally good news. However, some flash flooding is possible with heavier rainfall and in burn scar areas.
: I know it might sound a little weird to be happy about rain on a weekend, but, like Linda said, the Northwest is still dealing with drought. So this region really could use the rain. So I’m just trying to put a silver lining in there!
What else is on your radar?
Linda: What I’m really excited about this weekend is the time change. We fall back this weekend, returning to standard time and I love this time of year. I am looking forward to seeingin the morning and having my kids go to the bus stop when there is light out, at least for a few weeks. The earlier sunsets are also a reminder to me that the holidays are around the corner and they also make going to bed earlier a bit easier.
Chris: I’m a bit conflicted when it comes tothis weekend. Those early sunsets make me frown since I enjoy daylight into the early evening. On the other hand, as a meteorologist it means we get access to fresh model data an hour earlier, and that’s nice to have for examining possible forecast changes. But, I don’t think the tradeoff is worth it, so I would vote to stay on daylight saving time.
