Sometimes the early part of November is the quiet before the storm; this has been true for the last few days and will continue for the remainder of the week.

And sometimes lowland snow--like November 22nd of last year.
Just to show you what I mean by boring, here is the National Weather Service forecast for this week:
But there are some interesting aspects of the atmospheric situation of the next few days, some indicative of our old friend-La Nina. Take a look at the 500 hPa upper level chart for Tuesday at 1 PM. A ridge over us (thus dry) and a high amplitude trough digging south from Alaska.
