Pattern remains mild for the next 6-10 Days

Even though Rockford’s temperature may dip to around 12 degrees Tuesday morning, all eyes are on a significant warm up that will be even more abnormal than the cold we’ve got going on here now.

The pattern will turn warm and wet for the weekend with several disturbances working through the Plains States. This will last through the middle of next week when we will revert to a more colder pattern. Record highs could be challenged here in the Upper Midwest if we can keep rain chances to a minimum and see some sunshine. Unfortunately, with December beginning this weekend comes a reminder that the sun is about as weak as it is all year. And even modest amounts of sun won’t do us nearly as good as a stiff southerly wind.

If you entered our “Guess the First Inch” contest, I hope you guessed a date well into December. There is no chance of accumulating snow this week…and likely none in the next week. Here is a look at the dates that have the highest chance of snow (from today’s vantage point). We have $750 in gift certificates and prizes that we will give away after RFD Int’l Airport reports its first inch. Stay tuned! -Eric
