Might finally get some snow on the ground within the next 10 days




GEFS showing a major SSW event





even a polar vortex split

ECMWF also has increased the probability of a SSW event to 77% at the very beginning of the new year

1982 was our warmest Christmas too. 58F.

1980 was our coldest, it dropped to -23F... Although I prefer a white Christmas, I'll still take a mild Christmas over -23F...

Some winter weather in January would be nice though. January will need 25" of snow to bring us back to normal for the season - normal for January is about 16" and we're about 9" below normal. Don't need it to be cold cold, just seasonal (10s-20s).

1983 was my coldest at 19f for a low and 38f for a high in Tampa when we had real winters.

Today is cloudy and 73f so not bad and sure beats 86f i have had before. They say Rain on X mas but i know how that will go as it goes POOF just offshore.

It looks like the city of Halifax going to get its tenth straight green Christmas.

55F/13C here and at ORD. MDW is at 56F


Still 300 hours out but both the GEFS and ECMWF are now showing a Polar Vortex split, not just a stretch. Mid January onwards could be wild

^^^^ Afternoon temps here in SW Ohio were almost the same as in Chicago area. There was some morning fog with the 8 am temp near 50F. There were a few rain showers in the late morning, and the afternoon had a mix of sun and clouds. It was beautiful when I was walking outside at 4 pm, sunshine and no wind.

Lovely Southeast US weather monitoring for Christmas. A cold front has dropped today's highs/lows in parts of Texas and Louisiana into the low teens-high single digits/low single digits, but from North Carolina to southern Texas and Louisiana there are still warm highs from mid teens to high 20s and many double digit lows.

And of course I would be amiss to not mention that January 2024 first frosts are looking increasingly likely for more places than I anticipated. Not just the usual special spots of Houston George Bush Airport and Gainesville Airport, but places as far north as Ocracoke on the Eastern Seaboard, as well as Gulf Coast places in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida.

On this holiday the GFS is back with its usual fun and games with a much milder look for early January. As usual I’ll believe a non blowtorch pattern when it actually verifies on the ground.
