Outlook for Early December 2012

The Climate Prediction Center updated its 8 to 14 Day Climate Outlook on Sunday. Looking ahead into the first couple of weeks in December, the overall pattern in the continental United States will allow for much of the country to see above average temperatures.  This includes us here in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.  Many of the long range forecast models I’ve looked at, including the upper atmospheric temperature anomalies, all suggest warmer-than-normal readings.  Early December normal high temperatures are in the 36 to 39 degree range. 

As far as precipitation goes, we may see more than what is normal.  Could this mean any accumulating or significant snow? Given the forecast temperature trend, it’s not in the forecast anytime soon.

    Not good for us snow and cold lovers. I hope the middle of the month gets colder and snowier.
