Fog is a factor again Friday morning, but the fog and low clouds shouldn’t last as long today.
One reason will be an increase in wind speed by midday and afternoon. It will be a gusty weekend, with Saturday afternoon breezes to 25mph, and Sunday wind gusts up to 30mph. Expect warmer degrees in the breeze. Indiana will finally get back above 60 this weekend. That hasn’t happened since the 25th of October.
Most of the eastern US gets the weekend warm up, and it will be a sight for sore eyes in New York, where 4 inches of snow fell in Central Park yesterday. The NYC high should get to the mid 60s by Veterans Day.
The strong, warm wind flow will be driven by the difference in pressure between a nice high near the East Coast, and a looming low over the northern Plains. The low’s trailing cold front will be a firing line for strong to severe storms this weekend.
By the time it arrives here Sunday evening, I expect mainly a rain thing. Showers (and maybe a few storms) will start Sunday night. Looks like a rainy Monday, and then the bottom falls out of our Fahrenheit for several days next week.
The average high today is 56 and the average low is 38. Records are 76 and 17. The sunrise time is 7:23 and the sun sets at 5:34.
