Winter Like Preview For Some
Up to 18” snow was reported in part of Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin. And Michigan got more than expected with amounts nearing 12.” A pretty impressive storm for the middle of November. So winter is coming in case you forgot.
No snow for us though. So no need to worry. Yet.
Thanksgiving week will be quite uneventful for our region. That is until next weekend. A moderating trend in temps will occur as the cold of Sun/Mon leaves, and the cold reloads out west. Another snowstorm will hit the upper plains states with some pretty cold temps as well. As the tough deepens out west, guess what happens in the east? You got it! A ridge builds again. Now where have we seen that before????
Yes, weather tends to repeat itself in a general sense. Short term and long term, so why not over decades? I believe it does. But I digress.
Uneventful weather through Friday. Then the fun begins. Pressing frontal system with lots of moisture. Will it move through quickly, or slowly? Will it feature a storm enhancing the rain? Will it split, sending front through, then a bigger storm later after cold air invades? Or does the front move through, and then everything else is suppressed to our south? Believe it or not, all solutions have some support in the models. Nothing like a little confusion to help ones confidence.
