Just a quick note on this month's and this weekend's weather. So far in December we have had measurable rain every day except for the 1st. After our very dry November (0.60" of rain), we are already at 1.54" for December.
We're on our third straight day of a storm system that has parked itself over our area, bringing constant shortwaves up the Ohio Valley. At the same time this system is bringing a big snowstorm to the Upper Midwest, dubbed Winter Storm Ceasar by The Weather Channel.
Once this system passes east sometime tomorrow, cold air will wrap in on northwest winds, however snow seems highly unlikely. We'll dry out quickly as the front passes, but a flake or two isn't out of the question as a possible fetch off of Lake Michigan may make it this far south.
This wet start to December isn't a surprise as our winter appears to be setting up be a wetter one, however we just haven't had the systems pass far enough south to bring us the snow yet.
