Tech talk: a great start to November, cooler weather to come this week! | Technical discussion



It’s a beautiful day out! By noon we are already 60 degrees in the Harford area with blue skies all around the state and the northwest winds will keep us sunny and dry. It will be one of the hottest days that we have had in quite some time. A cold front will melt tomorrow resulting in isolated showers, especially in the hills to the northwest. The bottom tomorrow will be visibly cooler. Cloud cover will make the mid-1950s afternoon a bit cool compared to the recent heat.

The morning low drops again on Wednesday. This could be the first frost for much of Connecticut. Fortunately, we will have sun in the afternoon. It will be a cool, seasonal day with temperatures ranging from the low to mid 50s.


We will be in a longwave trough that will deflect moisture from the ocean for most of the forecast. The only exception could be Friday. Showers at higher elevations will be possible on Thursday, but most of us will only see partly sunny skies. It should be noted that flakes can be seen in some of these downpours from Litchfield.

Friday looks to be partly cloudy at this point as calm weather continues, and that lasts until the weekend! A surface anticyclone is expected to spread on Saturday and Sunday and ensure mostly dry conditions. Saturday will be partly sunny and Sunday should be mostly clear. Temperatures will be constant from the low 30s to the mid 50s. It depends on how much sun we see.

The mighty Nor’easter produced a lot of wind and rain. A gust of 70 mph was measured at the US Coast Guard Academy in New London. The instrument sits on a jetty in the Thames adjacent to the campus, on Jacobs Rock. There was a 64 mph gust over the Stonington Outer Breakwater and a 62 mph gust over New London Ledge. During this time, the wind was even stronger in eastern Massachusetts, as well as on Cape Cod and the Islands. The strongest reported gust was 94 mph at Edgartown, and there was a gust of 82 mph at Wellfleet!

Precipitation ranged from 2 “to 5.5” over much of Connecticut. Southwest Connecticut had the most. The highest precipitation ratio was 5.41 “at Wilton and 5.08” was measured at Ridgefield. During this time we received reports of 2.27 “in Wethersfield and 1.88” in Staffordville.
