Changeable weather next few weeks

A more active weather pattern is taking shape this week and beyond with the return of rain and cooler temperatures.

No big air mass change today with a slow moving cold front and waves of low pressure just to our north and west eventually moving into and through the area, bringing an increasing rain chance north to south, first in the mountains and far north suburbs then increasing in coverage across the area by Wednesday and Thursday along with much cooler temperatures:

Rain starts to diminish Thursday afternoon and seasonably cool dry weather follows Friday and Saturday as Canadian high pressure “wedges” down the Appalachians from New England:

This COULD lead to cold air damming CAD (the wedge) by Sunday with clouds, light fog and drizzle, high temperatures on the weekend only be in the 50s.

The up and down back and forth pattern continues into the end of November but with more below-normal days than above normal:

After a fairly wet 7-day period the European model ensemble maps from WeatherBell show it turns drier again as it cools:
