Thursday November 29 2018
The wind storm is finally losing its grip but the cold air will take a little more time to modify. But looking ahead we have yet another storm on the way for the weekend. This will come in two parts: Showers on Friday then steady rain on Saturday arriving in the afternoon. Like prior storms, this will leave us with half of the weekend in better shape, but this time a warm up will follow the rain. Then were look ahead to FITF Day- December 5th was the first day of snow in our region almost every year last decade. The models are ‘trying’ to produce something this year… next week.

Just enough wind to make it feel like the upper 30s
The will be light rain showers on Friday. The steady rain will move in for Saturday afternoon and night, ending Sunday morning. See the snapshots below.
Friday Mid Day
After the Sunday warm up, temps will tank again. There is a chance as the pattern changes we will get a little storm to link up for some snow Wednesday.
Models Do NOT Agree:
The European ECMWF Model shows a more organized system Tuesday night into Wednesday morning with some December 5 snow. Compare this to the GFS Model that does not have the energy coordinate as well bringing only flurries or snow showers. I should point out that the GFS model did have this looking more like a storm yesterday, but lost it. This is somewhat common for that model. So it is worth watching for a day or two to see if there is consistency developing this.
December 5th- FITF Day
Gather your friends and co-workers: Wear your #FITF gear to honor and celebrate this unique calendar holiday. This is the date almost every day last decade marked the first snow of each winter season. I will have the history to show shortly.
