Back To Reality Before The New Year

 Good evening and happy Friday everybody.  I hope your Christmas weekend has been filled with fun, family, food and good cheer... so far.  

We've had an impressive stretch of mild weather timing out nicely for the holiday.  Today's high of 49° matches the previous high for the month set back on the 14th.  It's also our 5th consecutive day with high temps of at least 40°.

And with temps running more than 5° above average for the month, it's no surprise our snowfall is way below normal:

If you're enjoying this mild stretch of weather, please soak in Saturday as we hit a 6th consecutive day of 40° or above.  After that, all bets are off.  In fact, we're entering into the climatological basement of winter weather.  By this I mean, historically, we're approaching the coldest time of the year.

And, as the above graphic shows, we have about a 50% probability of kicking things off colder than normal... Brrrr!  In fact, even before we make it to January our temps suffer a major setback.  Highs will struggle to hit 20° by Tuesday and then again on New Year's Eve day.  We're also monitoring snow potential for the first weekend of 2015.


Stay Tuned!!!
