Tomorrow is the first day of Winter… No Joking!

Today is the last day of meteorological fall, which includes the months of September, October, and November.

Now, many of you may think winter starts on either the 21st or 22nd of December, but to every meteorologist on this planet, winter starts tomorrow. Meteorological winter is the three coldest months of the year (December, January, and February.) Those three months feature the lowest average temperatures out of the entire year. In December, Rockford’s average temperature on the 1st is 38°F.  By the time we hit the end of the month, our average will be ten degrees colder. The astronomical first day of winter is December 21st.  That is when we have our lowest sun angle, which also means our shortest day of the year.

The graphics show what our friends at the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) think our meteorological winter might be like.

    After winning Game 1 3-2 in overtime on a Joe Pavelski goal, the Sharks dropped the second game of the series 4-0, heading to Staples Center with the series tied at one apiece. The Kings would take another 4-0 lead in Game 3 but five second period goals by the Sharks capped with a Devin Setoguchi overtime winner gave the Sharks a 6-5 victory and tied them for the second biggest comeback in Stanley Cup playoff history. They would go on to win Game 4, lose Game 5 and finally win the series in its sixth game, with captain Joe Thornton scoring the series winner in the third overtime game of the series.
