Down to 22F this morning, and everything white with a hard frost. Looks almost like a dusting of snow.  Wishful thinking . . .

Noticed quite a few pine trees down here and there from the weekend winds.

Bonafide hard freeze area-wide. The growing season has certainly ended now.

Besides some cold shots, weather looks mostly dry and uneventful through Thanksgiving and beyond.  Good for travelers around our area, but a total snooze-fest at least through part of next week.   ::sleeping::   Snowpack continues to build across southern Canada and over parts of the northern Rockies, but that's about it.

Saw a lot of frost flowers on the way to work this morning as the ground vegetation with sap still in the stems exploded in the freezing conditions.

Winchester clocking in with the state low and high today. 19F and 57F as of the 3PM update. Reminds me of Colorado. ::coffee::

Current pattern is a good example that the NAO/AO oscillations aren't the ultimate driver of cold, stormy weather in the eastern U.S. all the time.  Both are in negative territory, but we have little to show for it besides a seasonal brand of cold weather.  The main storm track is too far off the east coast, currently, and should stay there for the next week or so.  The North Atlantic Oscillation should recover to near neutral conditions by then, as well, keeping the bitter cold air locked in Canada for now.  We'll have to get deeper into the winter months before we can dislodge the strong, tight PV, and start bringing chunks of Arctic air into the lower 48.

problem is. The trough just been way to Far East. This pattern is pretty much dilly dilly.
Come on severe wx season...

Unusual to see this much of the lower 48 totally precipitation free for a 7 day period in late November.

Yeah its going to be dry for awhile it seems. So boring but i actually like this if it flips by end of december because thats our prime time for snow end of december-early feb is the best time for us to get snow. But usually we end up getting our snows after that and its less special then.

Wow! A week without rain is pretty rare for places like Mobile, Alabama.

Looks impressively dry across a wide swath of the U.S. for the next 10 days considering this should be an active time with the jet stream heading south.  Hope this pattern changes.  No matter how cold it is, you can't have snow in a dry pattern.  Reminds me a bit of '06-07' winter.  The winter started dry, ended dry, and it led to an exceptional drought area wide by the summer of 2007.

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow weather peeps in Tennessee from the homestead in Kentucky.
