More Arctic Air for The Weekend...

December 16th, 2008

The Arctic pipeline is full, open, and running and we will likely see another dose of Arctic air this weekend.  With the current pattern, we are readily able to tap that cold air that resides in Canada.  As you can see there is plenty of cold air to our north, so I am afraid that this Arctic air is going to be an occasional occurance for the rest of the Winter

At the same time, we will also likely see some mild air from time to time.  Back in November we saw numerous days with above normal temperatures.  Now, we are seeing the other extreme.  Just be thankful we don't have any deep snowcover east of the mountains.  If we did, boy we would get cold and stay cold.  More on this in the coming days.

    Ok..I love snow, but this cold with not much snow is killing me. If it's going to be 8 degrees, I want atleast two feet of snow with it! But, I guess it's good to kill of nasty things we don't want in the spring. What happened with LaNina again?

    Ryan, it looks like this active Winter pattern will relax a bit toward the middle of next week. That means as of right now, we don't have any big storms in the forecast for next week. Christmas is still a ways off, so stay tuned to the forecast. Thanks for reading our blog.
