Finally, A Week of 'Boring' Weather

After Hurricane Sandy and last week's close call with the nor'easter, an inactive week of weather is ahead.

We largely lucked out on last week's nor'easter as it tracked about 30 to 40 miles farther east than it appeared it would when we published last week's article.

Instead of a snowy outcome for the whole region, snow was largely confined to lower Bucks County and east into New Jersey. Some parts of Monmouth and Ocean counties picked up a foot of snow from that nor'easter ― Philly picked up a trace and Pottstown picked up a few snowflakes mixed in with light rain.

Thankfully, the weather pattern this week is less complex and stormy and much easier on both forecasters and the storm-weary. Outside of a round of showers that will move through late Monday night and into Tuesday morning, the week's weather looks pretty boring.

I don't think anyone will complain.

The warmest weather will be on Monday, when highs get into the upper 60s in the region, perhaps hitting 70 across parts of Delaware and South Jersey. We cool back to around 50 on Tuesday afternoon in the wake of the front and have highs in the lower half of the 50s for much of the rest of the week.

Sunshine dominates, high pressure controls the weather over the region from Wednesday through Saturday and by November standards, the weather will be typical.

Looking into our crystal ball a little bit further, the run up to Thanksgiving may feature a close call with a coastal storm. As of now, odds favor that storm missing us and perhaps impacting New England. That part remains to be seen. Regardless, temperatures look rather typical for November and Thanksgiving itself looks pretty nice overall.
