No question about it: December will begin on a cold note

This afternoon I decided to check the current snow cover across the United States and Canada. Surprisingly you don’t have to go too far to the north to see a blanket of snow. On Sunday much of Iowa, southern Wisconsin, northern Illinois, Indiana and Ohio will get another 1-3 inches of snow on the ground. This will mean that the cool, northwest orientation of the jet stream will get colder and colder over the next week or two. There’s no sign that this pattern will switch around and with little bare ground northwest of here it’s almost a sure bet it will feel more like winter around here!

    You’re Winter forecast is all ready on-the-ball!

    You predicted snowfall events to be more frequent but less significant… More clippers.

    Will the Sunday-Monday Winter Storm warrant any kind of advisory?

    And, will the snow cover hold temperatures down for the rest of the week? Especially after Wednesday’s potential 1-3″ accumulation…

    So we could be dealing with anywhere from 2-7″ of snow on the ground in the stateline by Wednesday. Wow.

    Thanks for all that you guys do!
    –I hate to speak for people, but we all really appreciate what you do!
