After a warm November and warm start to December, the weather pattern looks to turn colder and stormy for the rest of this month. That means we could see several rounds of bitterly cold Arctic air along with several chances for accumulating snow. The weather pattern through the end of December will favor both clipper like weather systems that bring quick chances for accumulating snow as they dive southeast into the Ohio Valley along with a chance for stronger weather systems moving up from the southwest. Those stronger systems from the south and southwest could bring better chances for significant accumulating snow and or ice.
We should start off the New Year with a break in the winter pattern and moderating temperatures. While we don’t believe it will be completely dry and a few systems could bring showers and even thunderstorms to the area, a much more active jet stream will bring a wintry setup back to the Ohio Valley by the end of January and first of February.
Forecast trends and several of the indexes we use would support below normal temperatures for much of February with several rounds of snow. The first part of February could start off with several significant rounds of Arctic air and below zero temperatures.
