THE WEATHER DISCO:

Its all about Fall this week…late November type weather…The next cold front…part of a clipper type system kicking in on Tuesday…this brings clouds and some light rain around…mainly Tuesday afternoon..I don’t see a lot of rain…then more cold air behind that season with another front..a dry front coming in late Wednesday…the Gulf of Mexico moisture is shut off…so do not expect much in the way of rain this week…a chilly to cold and dry northwest flow. The growing season will end for lots of folks…Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday…get the house plants in now….check the heating systems…can winter be far away? The trend hold that chilly to cold weather will control into the middle of November…a mild day here and there…of course…but the chill is the trend. Then after mid November more of a see-saw pattern. So this is not a direct step down to winter. This October cold shot brings into play an analog year of the winter of 1976-77…that should get your attention. Speaking of the winter forecast…very much in flux with ideas right now…the winter forecast will be out November 21st.
