Frosty’s First Look: November 10-16, 2013

Posted on

Hey folks,

Welcome to my first edition of Frosty’s First Look, where I basically take a look at the main weather headlines through the week (Saturday), and then break them up into each region with more detail. So without further ado here it is:



  • Seasonal the next day or two before below normal temperatures move in by mid week. Seasonal temperatures should return by the weekend.
  • Highs 15°+ and lows 10°+ below normal are possible
  • Accumulating snow, especially in the higher elevations of the Appalachians and near the Great Lakes Monday night into Tuesday.


  • Seasonal the next two or three days before below normal temperatures move in for the middle of the week. Seasonal values return by the weekend.
  • Below freezing lows move in by mid week.
  • Mainly dry, as high pressure dominates


  • Below normal temperatures Mon-Wed before ridging pattern brings above normal temperatures in by the weekend, mainly in the western Midwest
  • Accumulating snowfall possible near Great Lakes


  • Below normal temperatures early in northern and central Plains before above normal values move in by mid to late week
  • Southern Plains to remain below normal for most of mid-week
  • Wet weather and potential for thunderstorms possible by the weekend

Interior West:

  • Above normal temperatures should continue, although eastern region could see slight cool down Monday or Tuesday
  • Significant snowfall across Montana today and tomorrow


  • Mainly dry as above normal temperatures persist

Pacific Northwest & California:

  • Above normal temperatures early on will give way to seasonal values late
  • A disturbance during the mid-week will bring rain/snow to Pacific NW. More significant snowfall possible during weekend, especially in higher elevations
