After Wet, Cold Start to Week……Warmer-Than-Normal & Dry Pattern to Move In with Next System Tracking Farther South

November 12th, 2012 at 1:26 am by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

After Tuesday, much drier, warmer pattern will be the norm up to Thanksgiving.  Next system is trending to track farther south, making the next 10 days look much drier with a turn to warmer conditions.  Overall, pretty positive AO/NAO pattern will set in, promoting zonal or ridging in the eastern U.S.

Some showers still look possible just before Thanksgiving & a Nor’Easter still looks possible in the Northeast around Thanksgiving.

Overall, the weather looks good for a chunk of this month.  I am still doubtful of our temperature dropping into the teens this month & still like the warm, dry trend for November.  It has just been a challenge of when it would get in here this fall.

    We have SNOW on the ground here in Remington! Maybe a 16th of an inch, covers most of the grass, roof areas and cars. Temp is at 29* with a partly cloudy sky.

    MA in REM

    The flakes started falling up here in Warsaw about 9:15, but there’s no accumulation and it’s already started to move out. But absolutely LOVED seeing it come down, especially after such a miserable summer that had me wondering if we’d ever see snow again .

    Fun mix of precip just S of Peru this AM, and the white stuff stuck! We totaled .51 of an inch in rain, and a trace of snow (Grissom recorded .04 of an inch of snow) from it’s start, at first mixed w/rain around 8AM, then changing over to all snow from 8:30-9:45, then wrapping up as BB-sized snow pellets before completely tapering off at 10AM. Of note: recorded a 1hr temp drop of 12 degrees from 4:30-5:30AM this morning. Will send a couple pix of the white stuff, which is STILL easily visible on the grass and fallen leaves. Trivia questions: What’s the minimum amount of snow on the ground, and it’s duration needed to be officially a “trace amount?”
