We have a brief warming trend the next few days but it won’t last.
It looks like warmer than normal weather will be hard to come by the rest of November and into at least the start of December as I pointed out the other day on Twitter and in earlier blog posts:

Not much rain anytime soon:
Snow cover advance across the Northern Hemisphere has been slow but began to accelerate in the past 7 days:
A Fall SNOWSTORM is expected this week in the Northern Plains and upper Midwest, the NW and some Lake Effect for the Great Lakes/NE:
Nothing frigid is expected this far South just yet. But the long-range models are suggesting a -WPO/-EPO in the 10-15 day period with a +PNA ridge from the Yukon Territory/Alaska South to the Desert Southwest states with a trough from James Bay to Florida before November is done. This could turn parts of the country stormy Thanksgiving week or just after. Thus a colder temp alignment is becoming increasingly probable East of the Rockies second part of the month.
