Sunny skies are favored to open the forecast period on Sunday and Monday, Nov. 1-2.
Fair skies are expected over much of the Midwest with clouds and passing showers over North Dakota and northern Minnesota from Tuesday to Sunday, Nov. 3-8. Precipitation totals should be light with above normal temperatures.
Expect sunny skies and warm temperatures on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 9-10.
Precipitation prospects increase over the next week from Wednesday to Wednesday, Nov. 11-18. Look for moderate to locally heavy precipitation totals. Temperatures are expected to cool so some places should expect nice accumulations of snow.
Fair skies are favored from Thursday to Wednesday, Nov. 19-25. Clouds and precipitation should stay off just to the south and east of the Midwest so southern and eastern portions of the Midwest may get nipped with a few passing clouds and precipitation. Temperatures are expected to warm.
Clouds and precipitation are expected finish out the month from Thursday to Monday, Nov. 26-30. I like the prospect of one nice snowfall for much of the Midwest. Temperatures should cool.
