HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATES NL THIS WEEK

Hey Folks,

Well as far as week in mid-late November goes, you won't see much nicer than the one shaping up across Newfoundland & Labrador. Chilly mornings, but temperatures warming up in the afternoon and a fair amount of Sunshine is on the menu as well.
 
With High pressure pretty much in control this week, there aren't any big systems on the menu until NEXT WEEKEND! Why do I feel like we'll all be longing for a week like this, come say January, February... or make that March or April.
 
THE NEXT 36
 
A cold front will slice across the Province tonight and into Tuesday. With that front, cloud cover and a few showers which will mix over to a few flurries and another cold Northwesterly flow will be dropping temperatures into the afternoon and overnight Tuesday. Skies will clear in behind the front, as another area of High pressure builds in from the Northwest. Have a look at the next 36. 
 
 
-For much of the Province, Tuesday night/Wednesday morning will bring the coldest temperatures of the week! Parts of Central & Western Newfoundland will likely dip to minus double digits! Here's the latest GEM Regional model projections.

LONG RANGE OUTLOOK
 
-By Wednesday, High pressure will again be parked over the Island and will bring some Sunshine and a cold start, with temperatures recovering nicely into the afternoon. In Labrador, a system tracking in from Hudson Bay will bringing increasing clouds, but also warming temperatures and a few flurries for Wednesday and into Thursday.
-High pressure will hold across the Island on Thursday, however that system moving through Labrador, could bring some increasing clouds and even a few showers or wet flurries to the Northern Peninsula and parts of the West & even Central Nfld. Stay tuned on that.
-Temperatures will be warming up into the high single digits across the Island on Thursday and into Friday, as winds become West Southwesterly.
-Here's a look at the latest 12Z GFS forecast model long range.

 
THE NEXT SYSTEM
 
As of now, (Monday evening) forecast models remain split on just when our next system will be moving into NL. However with a system moving in from the West (bringing cold air)... and another system brewing up to the South (bringing warm air)... it appears things will likely turn unsettled across the Province this Weekend, as the 2 systems come together. Of course it's all about timing. The timing of the system moving in from the West, the timing of the system to the South and of course the other main factor is the area of High pressure and just how it holds up late week.
