Friday November 12
I can’t be the only one who was woken up by wind driven rain against the window. That is ahead of a strong cold front that is passing through the region now.
I’ve added the live radar widget below (that is what asked for your location).
A few days ago this looked like a rainy day. It will not be. This is just a morning event, which is a signal that weather systems continue to be moving faster than first thought.
But over the next few days we will be stuck in a cooler than normal pattern. This will bring in snow to the mountains and some additional showers in metro areas
Note: I am aiming to publish My Winter Outlook by mid day today. I will send it out first via email. Here’s how to get on that list.

Morning Surface Weather
This strong cold front is part of a larger storm that is bringing the first Blizzard of the season to the Great Lakes. The core of the cold air is often delayed a day or two behind the front.
We get into the colder air this weekend. Upslope snow showers will mainly prevail in the high mountains.
Radar Snapshot at 6 AM
The line is moving to the east. But the individual cells are riding the south winds and pushing up to the north-northeast.

Radar Forecast: 7 AM to Noon
Behind the front and when the rain ends, this shift to NW winds will bring in the start of the cooling.

An upper level system will enhance a band of showers.
It will be a brief hit of rain in some metro areas, most likely late morning to mid day. But snow showers span the day in the high mountains.
