Another chilly day....some showers later tomorrow....

>> Tuesday, December 23, 2008

See the video above....been getting some questions about my thoughts on January, and I get into that in the video. In general, I think it is looking more and more likely that we will see some good shots of cold air as we get into the new year. Details are still sketchy. Like I said, see the video.

Some clouds rolled in here last night, and that kept our temps from really bottoming out. However, it is still cold this morning with lows in the low to mid 20s for most.

High clouds will be with us today with highs at best in the lower 40s. Clouds will thicken and lower tonight, and some drizzle will be possible tonight through tomorrow.

Out next system will swing through mainly tomorrow night, bringing some showers. The good news is that is looks like the system will be largely gone by Christmas morning with some sunshine making its return during the day.

More showery weather will be with us at times later Friday through the weekend before things dry out again by Monday.

On another note, for all of you snow fans out there, let's have a little contest. By posting in the comments section below, let's see who can predict our next accumulating snowfall.

The site will be the Charlotte airport. If you do not think we will see any accumulating snow for the remainder of this Winter, you can certainly forecast that. However, if you think we will see accumulating snow (and a 'trace' counts in this contest), you have to guess the date that it will occur.

The person who is correct or closest wins. If we do not see any snow, and multiple people forecasted as such, I will draw names out of a hat to pick a winner.

What do you win, you might ask. How about a fantastic News 14 Carolina bookmark, pencil, and pen? I don't know...I will see what I can dig out of the big closet here.

I will accept forecasts through January 1.

Excellent! Thanks for participating.

Be sure and leave a way of identifying yourself....first name last initial or something.

Well, this is tough. We haven't had a REAL threat yet, and I'm not liking the fact that all the storms (Low Pressure Systems) that are coming so far are too far north to really give us any snow. It seems like the storms that give us a good threat are the ones that form on the gulf coast, stay on the coast and ride up MAYBE in Georgia/SC. All the LOW systems seem to come right over us or west of us, then we're too close to the warm side of the storm. Those LOWs need to STAY LOW!! Something about a south east ridge that I keep hearing about keeps them from forming right. If this holds true, I don't see us getting any snow. Therefore:

Trace - January 22nd.

Oh boy! That News14 bookmark I always wanted!! LOL..just joking. My prediction::

Jan 10th 4/10 tenths of an inch.. followed by a good 2-3 the next day.

Jlowe 10:08 AM  

Let's see... January 8,2009... around an inch.

(That would be a great day, snow and another title for Florida.)

Great idea for a contest Mr East. So many possible choices to choose from.

this system coming through this week and weekend, is it going to leave that "suprise you have a severe threat" one that the front on saturday night brought, or does this just look like a shower activity?
