December 2019 Observations & Discussion


Recommended Posts

Tomorrow will be a variation of 2 seasons colliding together as my temps start of in the 50s w rain and drop in the 20s w accumulating snows along w blowing snow as mentioned now by NOAA. Tuesday morning, I should be in the brunt of the snow.

 

I got to thinking. IF this scenario was playing out in even 10 deg's colder atmosphere, I could've been looking at Tropical Storm conditions early morning switching over to a Bliz a few hours later. Even better ofc, would be to have normal cold temps and instead of this huge shield of rain coming from the south, I'd be looking at snow from the go, or at least a mix to snow scenario. But, It's 54F on Dec 29th so this is more like a mid-November set-up??

Visiting my mother where I grew up in the Twin Cities. Nice snow shower about an hour ago. Nice change from brown C.IA!  

Does it bug anyone else when a tv meteorologist says, "Temperatures will be 15-20º above where they should be"?  The average temp is just that.... the average.  Wild temp swings are normal, especially

Hopefully winter returns soon...but for now.........

I'd have to say, yes. Ridiculous if you asked me. Pattern is so twisted.

Currently experiencing rain and 35 degrees at the cottage. Gotta be one of my favorite noises of any season, the pitter patter of rain drops on an un-insulated roof, makes 35 & rain tolerable, so relaxing.

 

WWA just went into effect but unless dynamic cooling can win out before the heavy precip to my south moves in, I feel like this advisory is 8 or so hours premature. Fingers crossed for over-achieving!

 

My zone forecast has little to no accums daytime and 2-3" tonight, FWIW. 06z NAM likes areas just to my west and just to my north...

Grand Rapids is now over 50” of precipitation for the year. With todays high of 50 already reached December 2019 will end up being one of the top warmest December’s at Grand Rapids. Will have to wait to see what the finial totals in rain and snow will be. At this time it is very windy here with a temperature of 39° As for the snow tonight we will have to see how that plays out.

Looks we will bookend several inches of accumulating snow for December.  Might look closer to average snow  because of it.  Won't tell the tale of how December really was.

December was actually remarkably dry in light of things.

It appears the wet and cool pattern here that summarized the closing part of the decade (2015-2019) is finally over.

34° avg Lo

 

High Temp 67° (12/25)
