Current radar shows a decent idea of precipitation type as it matches many of the observations I have been looking at..
Snow to the north some light freezing rain to the south where you see the pink.
Next week we get a very nice warm up. Temps can reach the 70's in spots!
However, as I have been talking about all signs point to a very cold November from the 2nd week of November on. The models are still supporting this. Due to that unprecedented split in the polar vortex, we will see how this really plays out (a weakening polar vortex is a major wild card). Will November be more like December? We will have to wait a little longer to see.
By around the 6-10th the models really start to show a massive ridge crank along the west coast..
How quickly this evolves is up for debate as some models are slower than others. They all eventually show this..
I am very confident in the high latitude blocking to support this pattern. At this time the only thing that would flip this is if the pacific jet g0t too strong and it overpowered the pattern. That can happen but that is not my forecast at this time.
More in days to come.
