Just a quick note...remember that this blog is titled “SnowTALK!" for a reason :) This is the place to go to talk about winter weather/snow and to see how do our prospects are looking. Sometimes there will be items to discuss/track, sometimes not. If you are not a fan of winter weather then you don’t have to read it. I promise :)
For those that are (and many of you are) thanks for reading/watching and enjoy the post!
12/21 Possible rain to snow event
12/24 Possible rain to snow event
There is no doubt we are in a warmer pattern. As you will see in the video, the main cold “source” is on the other side of the planet. So far, most of the wintry events have been with marginal cold air. This means it doesn’t take much for the warm flow to fight back and win.
Having said that, we will still face some ugly weather at times the next few days with gusty winds today as one system scoots by to our north, and periods of rain/wind Friday and Saturday. The WAVE 3 Weather App will have the details on that setup.
Looking ahead, there will be a couple attempts of cold air to dive into the our region. The angle of which they “dive” is still questionable as they may aim more to our northeast. Nothing crazy showing up with precipitation with those but that is normal this far out. We will watch it.
Christmas into New Year’s is when we start to get the arctic air back into southern/eastern Canada. This means our active southern branch of storm systems will have more fun and games with them. Will it snow on Christmas? I don’t know that answer. No one does. But I can at least tell you there is a signal for a system 12/24-12/26 and again 12/30-1/2. With the cold air on the move by that point, things could get more interesting around here. I will have more maps tomorrow on this change as I am expecting some new data to come in over the next 24 hours.
Until then, typical late-autumn weather will rule.
