Discussion

A significant pattern change will occur this weekend after a strong cold frontal passage ushers in much cooler air. In addition to the change to cooler conditions, the very wet weather pattern of the last couple of months will end, at least for several days, as we’ll enjoy generally dry weather for much of next week. The weather for the Yankees playoff games will be somewhat unsettled both tonight and tomorrow night with a shower possible each night along with breezy and cool conditions. The upcoming Canadian air mass that arrives this weekend will feel more typical of November weather in parts of the Northeast US as there is the outside chance for some snowflakes to mix in with rain showers in some of the highest elevations. Strong high pressure will edge eastward by early next week and will control our overall pattern for several days with generally dry conditions through much of next week.
