A Dry Outlook


Dry, dry, dry. Dry this week, dry most of next week, and we could stay dry for even longer. Temps will be milder more often than not, but fortunately no major heat waves. We continue to wait for winter to begin...

Short Term Forecast

Good morning everyone. Sorry for the late post this morning. I'm traveling to see some of my partner's and my family for the holidays. I'll keep this update short and to the point, as there really are no changes or updates to our pattern for the foreseeable future. 

Next 5 Days 

I know I'll sound like a broken record, but here I go anyway. It will be dry and mostly mild over the next 5 days. There will be stronger winds on Wednesday and Thursday with gusts up to 30+ MPH out of the West and Northwest. Other than that, there's really nothing exciting to talk about. Our slow start to winter continues... 

Next Week & Beyond... 

I wish I had better news for you snow lovers, but I unfortunately do not. The outlook for pretty much all of next week continues to look just as dry as it does for this week. Just take a look at the Euro Ensemble Runs:


We hope for a pattern change around the middle of the month. And while it may still occur, it hardly looks to benefit our region. The odds are we could be waiting more than just another week or 2 for a real snow storm... 

I'll keep you posted. 

Till the next one... Mike out.
