Friday November 30 2018

This is the last day of November, which ends hurricane season and meteorological fall. Winter begins in the meteorological community on December 1, but it will take few days to get the cold pattern back in place. In the meantime, we will get rain and then a big warm up that will make you want to spend the end of the weekend outside.

If we want cold air and snow, just hang on a little longer. Colder air will settle back in place with an active pattern. There is plenty of time for it to link up. While the pattern change is expected mid week, it might be next weekend with a better chance for a winter storm. FITF

December 5th Snow- Losing Support

This event appears to stay south on the GFS, but the European Model faded it to only flurries at best. Sometimes the modeling loses energy that shows up a few days later with more support.


Next Weekend Storm?

I do not like to show weather specifics more than 1 week away, but since the December 5th event seems thin, the European and GFS Models link the energy up and try to produce a winter storm next weekend
