We're into that uncommon trifecta setup for our Nov. 2. A high pressure ridge (1) will keep us sunny (2) and with surface attention caught between a low to the north and a high to the south, our wind will be pushed and pulled in from the south (3).

That means that I'll be asked to de-tarp the packed-up patio furniture for an afternoon. And I'm going to, because I want to be out there, as well!

It's a perfect setup for warmth, and with high pressure lingering for a few days before our upper air tilts to zonal (west-to-east motion), we can expect highs in the double-digits headed out to the midweek, before we fall back closer to normal Thursday.

The only question mark on today is that (3) up above; will our wind force be solely southerly, or will the alignment of that low in the north/high in the south equip us for some westerly wind flow? Our forecast models seem to be flipping a coin on the matter. Some say westerly gusts get to 50 km/h, while others keep us steady at 20-30 km/h from the south, and it all depends on the strength of those upper systems.

The change-up to the forecast would be additive warmth pushing us above 17 C.
