So we finish out December with only some flurries last Monday morning.Forecasters run to find similar years when there was no snow and what the rest of the winter was like,but it doesn't matter.Its still very hard to predict what the rest of the winter is base on the previous months.I've seen where December was way below normal and the rest of the winter was above normal.I've seen December below normal and the rest of the winter stays below normal.Our last few winters have seen a -NAO pattern,which translates into colder and stormier winters.So far this fall and December have seen a positive NAO,will this condition stay,who knows.It seems unlikely that pattern would hold,but it may.This has been a strange year of weather patterns,with patterns holding for long periods of time. And since last year we had a -NAO just about all winter,this may be the winter of +NAO.We'll just have to see.
As far as this weekend it will be around normal to above normal on Sunday,then an artic front moves through Monday night and we go into the deep freeze.
Last night with the 20-30 mph winds,it was a cold walk with Prince,the first real cold walk of the season,not that he minds with his double coat of fur.On cold nights like last night,I don't see anyone else.Once winter sets in,I'm usually the only one out walking their dog.Wimps!!!
