A short-lived blast of Canadian air is on the way

    The weather during the next week is looking quite calm, although a blast of Canadian air Tuesday into Wednesday will remind us that winter is approaching. As cold air fills in behind a frontal passage containing some precipitation Monday night, snow flurries are possible north and west.

    For today, a weak cold front will pass through, with a westerly breeze in the 20-30 mph range kicking up this afternoon. You’ll likely see leaves flying around (perhaps from your pile?). Clouds will build into the northern half of the state. Elsewhere, including along the coast, we’ll see more sun than clouds for the remainder of the day. Highs will be in the low 50s.

    A mainly tranquil day is on tap for Veterans Day, with highs around the low 50s north, upper 50s south. Clouds will arrive later in the day as a Canadian cold front approaches, ushering in very cold air and breezy conditions for Tuesday and Wednesday (wind chill!). Snow flurries are possible in the higher elevations Monday night.

    While cold Tuesday and Wednesday (highs only in the low 40s), expect mainly sunny skies. Temperatures will begin to moderate Thursday (low 50s) into the weekend (mid-upper 50s) as high pressure returns.
