Cold Start to December...

 

The first week of December will be a chilly one with temperatures generally below the average.
 
This will happen because the upper level wind flow (map) will steer several chilly Canadian air masses through Texoma.
 
Most of the air in November came from milder Pacific fronts so this air will be more typical as we move into early winter.
 
Stay warm!

    A bold prediction and wish by me for Christmas. High of 20 and snow.

    Thanks for all of your questions; some I can’t answer like how many snows we will get this winter. However, as the present pattern shows, an active southern jet stream brings many rain/snow potentials our way and this is consistent with El Nino. Please see my El Nino post by clicking on “more blogs”. Commenting on an omega block: it now appears we will have an elongated omega for a few days starting the middle of next week. Look for arctic air blasting through on Wednesday. Stay tuned for more on that as time ticks away…. Take Care, Steve

    Winter forecasts in our area are the hardest to predict of all. Seems like forecasters are wrong more often than they are right. Just goes to show the awesome force and power of nature and our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! Because only HE knows!!

    What are the chances of the roads freezing over tonight after the colder front comes in tonight? Any chance of dangerous road conditions in the morning? I need a day off. lol.

    Steve, it looks to me like we have storms lined up in the pacific along with the influx of moisture along the equator associated with El Nino. Also it looks like that omega pattern may take shape mid to late December. Just observation, Steve, what do u think?

    Thanks for your questions; please click on this link for answers about this "El Nino" winter: http://bit.ly/5TMYlg As for white Christmas, you're really optimistic but historically there is a 3% chance... -:)

    What are the chances of a white Christmas or even a little snow from now till February Steve. According to long range forecasting I have read we have a better chance of wetter winter possibly little ice and snow due to el nino. I know long range forecasting is basically a guess but what you opinion Steve. Forecasting a week out is a guess. Just was want you opinion Steve. You forecast are all ways pretty close.Thx and Happy Holidays Steve from the Logan family.

    Is this a normal pattern for December? Do we have a better shot at any snow/ice events this year vs previous years?
