Farewell to the sun

The clouds are back and another extended stretch of sunless weather is upon us for this second week of November.  This happens a lot around here.

The source of the cloudiness, as is often the case this time of year, is partially due to high pressure building over New England, yes high pressure…a supposed fair-weather system.  The second factor, and it’s a big one this go around, is a developing area of low pressure near Georgia that is feeding off of leftovers from Ida.

First, that high to the north.  It effectively wedges in cool and moist northeasterly surface winds off the Atlantic.  We’ll really start to feel that beginning Wednesday. Second, the storm to the south.  It’s exponentially adding moisture to the equation, and it promises to be doozy of a storm, especially for coastal areas, as it gets stuck east of the Carolinas through the end of the week.

As far as the sunshine goes, don’t get your hopes up for seeing any for several days.
