Monday doing its thing..bleh. Clouds..drizzle..rain...mist. I'll say this though---it IS warm. Temps are in the 40s &50s (6am) already and will skyrocket into the upper 50s & mid 60s by afternoon. A storm (the same storm that dumped a foot of snow in MN & WI last night) will swing through here with raindrops & warm temps. In fact, we will hold onto the warmth well into the evening hours so plan on a mild night at Gillette with kickoff temps near 60 and 4th quarter temps still running in the mid 50s. Unfortunately, the chance of showers will be fairly high throughout the entire evening---but just scattered in nature. Whew--that's a busy Monday.
For Tuesday, we will clear out during the morning hours and the warm air also clears out of here as temps start in the upper 40s then fall into the low 40s by afternoon. We are quiet & chilly for Wednesday & Thursday.
Where's the cold & snow?!?!----None this week but there are continued signals from our models that *Greenland Blocking* will commence. Greenland Blocking is a type of jet stream pattern that often produces cold & snowstorms across eastern North America. This new pattern will get under way next weekend and there are signs of a colder & snowier pattern for the northeast over the 2nd half of December.
Not a bad day overall huh? Seasonable temps, some sunshine and temperatures close to the average. However, the quiet weather won't last as rain, snow and even some ice head our way in the 7day forecast.
Love that tune and it's todays screaming message from the weather office. Sharing.....my college professor always said to look for the screaming message within the weather maps and he's right as our pattern will get busy the next several days so if you can take some time today (in this ever-busy holiday season) enjoy the silence.
Ocean storm offshore yanked the clouds away this afternoon. While our neighbors in Nova Scoti, New Brunswick and Cape Breton Island battled the wind and rain, we were basking in sun and temperatures close to 50.
You never want to root for a storm ---unless of course it's a snowstorm on Christmas Eve ;o) --- but I am today (and it's not a snowstorm). This storm out over the water will scoot up into Nova Scotia today and as it's leaving it will grab some of our clouds and get us some much needed sunshine by afternoon. This sunshine will boost temps into the mid 40s--normal for this time of year. Tomorrow will offer up even more sunshine making it the pick of the week.
