WELCOME TO DECEMBER!
Meteorological Winter begins today. Autumn was a warm one for the Valley, one of the warmest on record. In fact, we have had back-to-back warm Autumn seasons.
December is our cloudiest month and of course it is the month with the least daylight. Here;s the Sun table for the month:
We’ll lose another 12-13 minutes of daylight before the days start getting “longer”.
Today’s weather will be “eh”. Lots of clouds, cold winds and perhaps a sprinkle or flurry. Temperatures only rising a couple of degrees into the upper 30s.
Tomorrow? Pretty similar. A somewhat better chance for flurries, especially late in the day and north of I-80.
Saturday? You guessed it. Blustery and chilly with clouds and a flurry. Highs near 40.
Between now and Saturday, the snow belt and NW PA and SW New York can pick up some modest snow accumulation.
We can see a little sunshine Sunday morning before clouds roll back in. There will be a weak disturbance that may try to give us a coating of snow late Sunday and Sunday night.
After a quiet Monday, rain is likely Tuesday.
Then, the much-advertised shot of arctic air is set to arrive at the end of the week. The cold front will probably roll through Thursday. By Friday, wind chills could look like this:
Single digits. Winter will have arrived.
