Most of October was much warmer than normal. It’s hard to imagine the weather being cooler than normal. However, that’s what the latest 8-14 day outlook from the Climate Prediction Center asks.
They show at least a moderate chance of being cooler than normal over much of the eastern half of the country, including Wisconsin for the period November 2-8. Several weather models suggest that the jet stream will plunge from central Canada to the central United States, delivering more powerful blasts of polar air. This type of model could also produce rapid gusts of snow showers, especially closer to the Great Lakes. Meanwhile, the CCP has a solid chance of seeing warmer-than-normal conditions in the western part of the country.
For precipitation between November 2 and 8, CPC indicates a moderate likelihood of drier-than-normal conditions from California to Wisconsin to the Ohio Valley. They indicate a potential for wetter than normal conditions around Texas and the southern Mississippi Valley as well as New England.
