Be sure to check out Winter Weather Week all this week on jacksonsweather.com for tips on how to prepare for this snowy and chilly season as well as all the information you should know ahead of winter.
Another mainly dry week (Nov. 14-20) is ahead of us in Wilton with mild temperatures and sunny skies overall. This combination of warmth and sunshine will lead to worsening drought conditions.
Monday, Nov. 14: The new week will be off to a beautiful start with temperatures a few degrees above freezing while you’re waiting at the bus stop under sunny skies. It will warm up very nicely through the early afternoon as high temperatures may reach the 60-degree mark as clouds gradually begin to increase late in the day.
Tuesday, Nov. 15: Tuesday is the day where we have the chance for rain, which would actually make it the first measurable rain of November in Wilton. Expect periods of rain throughout the day, especially in the morning along with gusty winds at times and mostly cloudy skies. It will be cool, so have the comfy clothes under the rain jacket.
Wednesday, Nov. 16: That storm system will clear out by Wednesday, leading to a return of the gorgeous weather. Temperatures will be back up to about five degrees above average under a mix of sun and clouds.
Thursday, Nov. 17: Pretty similar conditions can be expected on Thursday. A ridge of high pressure will be building into the East Coast, and so that ridge will provide us warm weather and sunny skies. Even record-breaking heat can’t be ruled out from Thursday into the weekend.
Friday, Nov. 18: I don’t think the weather could get any better to end the week on Friday with abundant sunshine and very mild and comfortable temperatures hitting 60 degrees. It will be fantastic for any sports or activities outside.
Saturday, Nov. 19: The first half of the weekend will continue this beautiful weather. Saturday will feature plenty of sunshine accompanied by the warm conditions.
Sunday, Nov. 20: Then on Sunday, however, there is the potential for a cool down, and this cool down may be with us for an extended period. If we do get this cool blast of air, then that may produce lake-effect snow at the Great Lakes. Therefore, there is the slight chance for a rain or snow shower Sunday. Otherwise there will be intervals of sun and clouds.
