The Week Ahead

Curtis Smith

A strange month

As much as November is the month that hurls us into the cold part of the year, there are still signs of the weather it is mostly replacing. This weekend’s warm-up is a reminder of how warm air can invade, if only for a few days.

Almost every November gives a little warmth. In fact, the last time we didn’t hit 70 degrees at least once in November was 2007. In addition to warm air, strong thunderstorms and other severe weather are still possible. Saturday was the 10th anniversary of the most violent evidence of that: the F4 tornado that ripped through Van Wert. That day still serves as a stark reminder that in weather, anything is possible, at any time.

Weather wise: Today could be the last time temperatures approach 70 degrees this year. All signs point to a consistent cool-down in the extended forecast.
