A cloudy start today but the low clouds will thin from south to north over the next several hours. There will be some high, thinner clouds mixed with the sun today but overall a nice afternoon! We’ll get back into the lower and mid 50s.
Cold font will slowly roll through and rain will be here in the morning and midday hours. Should see clearing from west to east in the early and mid afternoon.
Temperatures should start to fall after a midday high.
December! Cold! Wind! Even some snow! How about that. Friday will feature some flurries here and there with highs a bit above freezing. Lake-effect snow will accumulate several inches in the primary snow belt of far NE Ohio, NW PA and SW NY into Saturday. Do not think this is enough to shovel in our viewing area.
SUNDAY/EARLY NEXT WEEK:
The mild air will make a big time comeback. After a nice Sunday, there can be some showers Monday.
Some serious warmth is very likely as we head toward Christmas, although Christmas Day may be cooler.
Christmas Eve/Christmas Day breakdown as it stands now:
-Temperatures will be WAY above average Christmas Eve. 60 or so is possible.
-There will not be snow.
-There will be rain at times from the 23rd through Christmas Eve.
-While there will be rain at times, not sure yet when it is MOST likely.
-A cold front may usher in “less warm” air for Christmas Day, knocking temps back into the 40s. But it could still be in the 50s too. Lots of model disagreement right now.
Don’t rely on a crappy smartphone weather app for your long-range Christmas outlook, in which the forecasts are 1) computer generated and 2) based on one run of one model.
WEATHER FOR WEATHER GEEKS:
On this evening’s video, we’ll re-examine the Christmas weather setup with fresh models and all that good stuff. Also, a look at travel conditions for this coming weekend…which will be very busy at the malls and on the roads!
2 Degree Guarantee:
The temperature wasn’t expected to rise much yesterday but it didn’t rise AT ALL! Come on atmosphere, give us ONE degree!
