At least briefly, Sunday and Monday will feature a warmer than average temperature trend. In fact, with temperatures forecast to reach the lower 60s on Monday, some areas may challenge the standing daily high temperature records. (see photo, top left)
Here's why. There is a pocket of dry and very warm air settled over the southern and central US. In fact, temperatures Friday will also challenge daily records through the central US as temperatures climb into the 70s! (see photo bottom left)
With a strong storm system moving into the northwest bringing heavy snow for some in Montana , North Dakota, and many of the mountains out west, the warm air will be pushed northward out ahead of that storm system.
Here are the current standing daily record high temperatures for Monday, November 12...
Burlington 66 (1982)
Montpelier/Barre- 62 (1982)
Rutland- 70 (1964)
St. Johnsbury- 65 (1911)
Malone, NY- 70 (2002)
Lebanon, NH- 64 (1982)
Plymouth, NH- 68 (2002)
While I am not currently forecasting any broken records, we will certainly come close with lower 60s rather common for Monday.
