BIG DAWG WEATHER

Thursday Evening Update

The Big Dawg Weather Blog is presented by:

Good Afternoon, Folks! I know that most of you are dying for an update on the potential for some winter weather next week, so let's dig into the latest!

Bitterly cold air is expected to arrive in the Ohio Valley late next week. This cold air will remain in place through the Christmas holidays. Temperatures next weekend may be some 20-30 degrees below normal for late December. Some wintry weather may accompany the arrival of the cold air. However, that portion of the forecast needs to be determined. 

On Monday, I mentioned that our area would have arctic air, and we just needed a storm to take the right track for our region to see accumulating snow. We have the arctic air and a storm to track; we just need this storm to take the right track. 

8-14 Day Temperature Outlook

In the next 2-3 days, we will be in "monitoring mode." This means there is the potential for accumulating snow next week, but please keep in mind we are 6-8 days away, and plenty of things change. So let's keep our emotions in check (especially if you are a snow lover) because there will be swings in the data as it tries to sort out all the details. 

 

GFS Forecast Model 

The GFS model has a significant storm system that would impact our area in around 6-7 days, around Thursday, December 22nd. 

EURO Forecast Model

The EURO model shows a similar forecast but with a weaker system. 

Canadian Forecast Model

The Canadian model shows absolutely nothing for our area next week.

Bottom Line

Again, we are still early in the game here, folks. So, let's temper our expectations until the forecast can become more precise. However, I think our chances for accumulating snowfall are increasing, and it may be our best chance at a white Christmas since 2010. As always, ill be motioning things much closer than I usually do, and I'll post updates as needed! Stay tuned!
