The holiday week will feature a wet and blustery start in the East, followed by the coldest temperatures of the season. Meanwhile, a warm front lifting across the Plains and Midwest results in considerably warmer temps.
A storm will bring rain to parts of the Northeast including most of the big cities on Monday. As the cold front exits off the Atlantic coast, temperatures will turn sharply colder during the day, accompanied by blustery winds.
Tuesday will be the coldest day of the week in the East with temperatures struggling to get into the 40s. The next storm system approaches the area of Friday, bringing a chance for light rain back into the forecast.
The Upper Great Lakes will receive several inches of snow today as cold air filters over the warm Great Lakes and activates the lake effect snow machine downwind of Lakes Superior, Michigan, Erie, and Ontario. Additional snowfall accumulations up to 6 inches is likely in Michigan's Upper Peninsula with several inches possible just east of Lakes Erie and Ontario. Expect difficult winter travel conditions in these areas.
In the West, the week begins with warm air as a large dome of high pressure expands over the nation’s heartland. Dry and gusty conditions will keep fire danger elevated in many areas. Next frontal system will bring unsettled weather to the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies into Tuesday. By Wednesday morning, the heaviest snowfall totals likely occur in the Cascades where a foot of snow in the highest of elevations is expected. A great boost for ski resorts set to open this holiday weekend.
Safe travels. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

As the Fall equinox approaches, a vast number of Americans are eagerly anticipating the perfect weather that comes with the arrival of the 23rd of September.

Florida finds itself as the odd state out of the nice weather streak, with potential hazards hiding behind subtle, yet persistent daily rainfall. Across the globe, Hurricane Nigel has formed in the Atlantic and will rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane in the days ahead. Europe may see its first tropical system of the season while Australia paces a record September, with more sunshine increasing throughout the continent.

There is a need for asset managers to understand the potential impacts of extreme weather on their assets and operations and take steps to mitigate these risks through effective risk management strategies.
