This week looks to have most of the country locked in with below average temperatures. This, along with solar activity starting on Friday and a full moon on Sunday, will make this a promising week for whitetail hunting. Numerous systems will pass through North America bringing some great windows for rising and falling barometric pressure, which increases activity. Here are your regions:
NE – The week starts out with pressure dropping as a low moves in and bottoms out on Wednesday. A high will slowly build and take over by the early part of the weekend. Best days: Nov. 18th, 19th and 20th.
SE – Most of the southeast will see rain showers or rain on Monday and Tuesday. As this system moves out things should pickup. High barometric pressure should be on Saturday. Best Days: Nov. 17th, 19th and 20th.
SC – Thursday stands out as it should see a spike and clearing between lows. Cooler temperatures in areas should really help this region. Best days: Nov. 17th and 18th.
MW** – Snow showers and much colder temperatures make this region my pick of the week. The week’s low of 1007 on Tuesday will rapidly rise to 1028 on Thursday before another low sets in by the weekend. Best days: Nov. 17th and 18th.
NW – Rain and snow dominate the early week in the northwest. A break on Wednesday and again on Sunday should make these extreme rising pressure days. Best days: Nov. 17th and 21st.
SW – A slight cool down and a couple mild lows will help this region. The week’s highest pressure at 1024 looks to be on Thursday. Welcome cloud cover should also improve movement. Best Days: Nov. 16th and 18th.
Moon times – Mornings are rated good and evenings excellent for Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Full moon is also one of the best times to sit mid-day, especially this time of year. All in all with low temperatures, solar activity and a full moon this should be a great week nation wide. Good Luck!
