Generally near average temperatures over most of the lower 48 the week after next. South Texas will be a little warmer than normal as will the northern Plains; the Rocky Mountain states and the central Plains will average a little cooler than usual but no big extremes are forecast by the ensembles.
This week sees the quick departure of the Nor-easter that brought a very early dump of snow to much of the NE. Cool conditions will persist over the NE through mid-week followed by a moderating trend thru the latter half of the week. Most of the E will enjoy a crisp clear weekend Nov 5-7 with cool overnight lows and seasonably warm daytime highs. A series of cold fronts will move thru the North-West and Rocky mountain states; first mid-week and the next by Friday. Both fronts will bring some snow to the Rocky Mountain states as far south as Colorado on Wednesday and again on Saturday. The Coast and Sierra ranges of the NW will see significant additions to snowpack this week. Given the demand for heating the first part of the week over the NE, I expect a lower injection of NG than has been the case during the last 2 reporting periods.
