Latest clues to the long-range weather pattern into November

Before I get to the long range, much cooler and less humid air has spread into eastern North America as the massive ridge along the East Coast has weakened and retreated. While there will still be some spells of warmer weather in the East, the period of summer-like warmth is over for the season. The humidity will remain higher than normal over the eastern Maritimes and Atlantic Canada the rest of this month with more opportunities for rain as a southwesterly flow aloft dominates.

There will also be a brief, reinforcing shot of Arctic air into the western Prairies Friday night with a period of rain showers quickly going over to snow from southern and central Alberta to southern Saskatchewan. Accumulations will likely be under 5 cm for most areas before it ends on Saturday. A gradual warmup will begin next week in the west.
