Springtime In December
It definitely had a feel of a warm March day with a gusty wind, sunshine, and temperatures in the 50s. With no sign of any long term pattern change we will continue to just undergo a slow cool off into Wednesday. However temperatures will still be 10 to 15 degrees above normal across the region. With half of December gone the month has averaged a whopping 12 degrees above normal which is an astounding statistic. Given the longer term pattern where except for 2 days this weekend we will be above normal until further notice, this December will be the warmest on record by a mile. This comes after the warmest November on record! Truly astounding. In case you missed it this morning here is my daily long range video analysis of the long range
Now back to the short range, we have a nice night ahead with clear skies and lows overnight will be in the mild 30s to around 40. No issues for Wednesday with sunshine and some high clouds moving in during the afternoon. Highs will be in the low to mid 50s.
Not much is happening on the satellite loop and the radar at the moment. Yesterday’s storm system is into Eastern Canada and is producing gusty winds which will continue tonight. Nothing active on radar until tomorrow as we start to see the beginnings of the next cold front approaching the the wave that will be developing to the south. That brings in rain for Thursday during the morning and then out during the evening. Whether there is a second wave of rain later Thursday night into Friday morning remains to be seen.
Then in comes the cold air for later Friday and the weekend. Temperatures on Saturday will be cold and not out of the 30s everywhere. For those of you who look for even the cheapest of cheap thrills, a passing snow flurry cannot be ruled out.
