PAST CLIMATE MAPS
I keep on reading about a coming El Nino occurring over the winter months. To briefly recap, El Nino is a type of weather pattern which typically brings a milder weather pattern to the Midwest. As much as I would like to agree with other experts, I still see us falling back into our colder than normal pattern we have been experiencing now for over a year. My outlook for December calls for continued colder than normal temperatures.
Precipitation totals are favored to total near normal.
Sunny skies are favored for Monday and Tuesday, December 1-2.
Partly to mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance for passing light snow or flurry is expected on Wednesday and Thursday, December 3-4.
Sunny skies and colder temperatures are favored on Friday and Saturday, December 5-6.
A mix of clouds and sun with a passing light snow is expected from Sunday to Tuesday, December 7-9. Snow totals should be light with seasonable temperatures.
Clouds are expected to thicken with an increasing chance of measurable snow on Wednesday or Thursday, December 10-11. Temperatures are expected to turn colder.
Sunny skies and colder temperatures are favored from Friday to Sunday, December 12-14.
A rain-to-snow event is possible on Monday and Tuesday, December 15-16.
Sunny skies are favored from Wednesday to Friday, December 17-19.
Clouds with a passing snow event are expected on Saturday and Sunday, December 20-21.
A mix of days with clouds and sun is favored from Monday to Saturday, December 22-27. Precipitation chances are expected to fall off with maybe a passing light snow or flurry at best. Seasonable to below normal temperatures are expected.
Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected to end out the remaining days of the month from Sunday to Wednesday, December 28-31. Light snow or even light rain is possible.
Sunny skies are favored to usher in the New Year and for much of the opening week of January, Thursday to Monday (January 1-5).
