Much like pretty much all of the storms so far this winter I’m sitting here listening to the rain pouring down with temperatures in the 50s
Well we had some snow that quickly changed over to sleet then rain with temperatures in near 40 over night. But hey, at least it was a cooler temperature than most storms this year. We always seem to be on the warm side of things this winter when there’s a storm. The Arctic front on it’s way though. We’ll have highs in the teens on Monday and lows tonight in the mid single digits and also Monday night.
December was a good month.. We had above average snow with the storms overdoing the original forecasts and plenty of cold air. There is still some snow on the ground from the surprise 3-4 inches we received for New years. Now we’re between an ocean storm off the new england coast and high pressure over the northern plains states. We’ll see what happens later in the week.
The cold has been building in Alaska for a while now and it has mostly stayed where it is. It looks like it will head straight down into the midwest and north east US.. We’ll probably get below zero here but the NWS isn’t forecasting that yet. I imagine it’ll be pretty brutal just a bit north of here where there is snow cover on the ground and if it clears up at night.
Sunday ended up being very windy with temps dropping into the teens as soon as the sun set. We bottomed out around 10 here. Monday it only made it into the 20s and back down to 16 last night. We had a little light snow this morning and then more snow will move into the area later and change to sleet and freezing rain then over to plain rain tonight. Once again it just seems like wasted cold.
