Good Morning: Sun, sun and more sun

There’s more beautiful weather on the way, even as the radio and the news wire brings news of spreading conflict in Gaza. Today will be 9 hours and 34 minutes long, and then we’ve got the weekend. And the forecasters in St. Johnsbury are calling for “Abundant” sunshine. In Vermont in the fall/winter, that’s something we can’t get enough of.

Today, highs in the 40s, low tonight in the 20s. The record temperature for today was 66, set in 2006, and the low was 4, set in 1967.

Forecast Discussion:
Sun, sun, and more sun! This is phrase not often used in November, which is on average our cloudiest month. But, those prone to seasonal affective disorder can smile broadly through early next week, as high pressure remains parked just to our north. Not only will this allow for the advertized sun, but it will also contribute to rather chilly overnight lows each night. The next chance for precipitation looks to be during the middle of next week with a possible coastal storm, but that looks like a rather slim possibility. Barring that, we’ll have to wait for a cold front to arrive on Thursday night with some snow showers.
