Cold Temperatures For Parts of the East Coast to Begin November

We are still expecting a chilly Halloween, but the next legitimate cold blast looks like it will come sometime between the 4th and the 10th, as we stated in a previous long-range outlook article.

The models are indicating on cold centered in the Midwest, but that chill will creep eastward into the western Carolinas. We are not expecting Arctic air or EXTREME cold, but near normal to slightly below normal temperatures. Normal for our area is chilly for this time of year.

The GFS below is showing below normal temperatures around November 5th.

NOAA is also officially indicating normal temperatures in the 6-10 day range from the 2nd into the 6th and slightly below normal in the mountains and foothills. Normal for us is chilly, with highs in the 60s and nighttime lows in the 40s and 50s. That is chilly for anyone living in the South.

The chilly temperatures look to persist in the 8-14 day range as well. We are expected to be in the slightly below normal region from the 4th into the 10th.

Again, we are not expecting bitter cold, but rather some chilly temperatures for early November, some which will be seasonal.
