Friday, November 30th: A milder break is still on track for this weekend across the southern and eastern US with temperatures warming above normal. However, at the same time, a strong weather system will spin up over the central US with increasing rain and snow, while also drawing in much colder Canadian air. This sets up next week to be quite cold over much of the country as below normal temperatures spread across most regions. A reinforcing cold blast is expected across the Great Lakes and East Dec 8-11, but is still expected to be followed by mild high pressure building across the central and southern US Dec 11-12, eventually including the East Dec 13-15. What the markets will be focused on before the weekend break is just how long this milder ridge will last once it sets up in mid-December.

Mild to Warm temperatures this weekend over the southern and eastern US. Although, cold over the West and Into the Plains.


Cold air spreads across the country next week with chilly lows of 0s to 20s north, and 20s and 30s into Texas and the South.


Dec 12-15: A milder ridge is expected to build over the southern and eastern halves of the country.
