I am not a long-range weather expert (then again, no one knows the future either, aside from God that is), so this is my best guess as to what I anticipate seeing for this upcoming winter season (Dec, Jan and Feb).
A colder winter than last year with temps a degree or so below average, and featuring more frequent snows, but smaller overall, giving us another above average year of around 50 inches total.
It is fall-like. Then again it is the end of October so it should be fall-like, right? There has been some talk of “snow” coming up tonight into Thu morning … well, don’t worry about it. You may see some wet flakes of snow mixed in with the rain very early Thu but it will be too warm for any kind of accumulation if there are even snowflakes.
If you want to see it snow, go north and in the mountains for a brief period of snow. But for us nothing to get excited about. Just cool, raw and rainy tomorrow.
Behind this system it is blustery on Friday, and still cool. Sat looks descent but another storm system approaches from the west late in the day. This storm will track further north, leaving a frontal boundary across our area, giving us a likelihood of some showers on Sunday. Behind this storm it’s seasonal with sun and clouds for the early to middle portion of the week.
