Wednesday Afternoon Post

>> Wednesday, December 06, 2006

First of all, thanks to all of you for checking back and keeping up with the blog. I am sorry for the lack of posts the past couple of days....lots of family things going on, such as my oldest daughter's school Christmas show last night.

At any rate, I am back in the saddle today, holding down the midday fort for both Charlotte and the Triad.

No late-week storm system to bring us any precipitation is coming, but a big-time blast of arctic air is heading our way. This arctic shot will only last about 48 hours, but let me tell you....this will be some of the coldest air you see this time of year.

The arctic air really plunges in here beginning late tomorrow afternoon. I think by Friday morning, temps will be near 20 degrees, and I think many of us will stay in the 30s all day Friday. A very cold night is on the way Friday night with lows by Saturday morning likely in the teens. In fact, as I am typing this I see the new 12z GFS MOS data has come in with a low of 14 Saturday morning....yikes! We could very challenge the record low of 16 Saturday morning set back in 1917.

Gazing into the crystal ball, I am sticingk with the idea of generally warmer weather next week and probably much of the week after. But, I also still think things are probably aligning for a return to colder weather around here toward the end of the month or early January. I have not gotten a good feel for when I think this will happen....give me more time on that one.

so how long do we have to wait before we are going to see our first big Snow storm of the season in charlotte?

My thoughts are that we will likely have to wait until later in the season. I like our chances of seeing snow this winter, but I just think it will be deeper in the winter, like at least January, before our best snow chances occur.
