Update posted 11/26: Cold air will return during the weekend, with a large storm developing over the Midwest, spreading across Southeast. Cold surface air will be wedged in from late Saturday night into Sunday, but look for just rain, except in the mountains and far western Piedmont where there is a chance for a mix of wintry precip. Could be a cold, rainy Sunday if this forecast scenario pans out.
OK… we’ve had the really cold temperatures (for November anyway), and a few flurries, but that’s been our early taste of winter so far. While the weather pattern continues to favor generally below-normal temperatures into at least the first week of December, it is still hard to find any real hints of significant winter storm development for our region.
Of course, it’s a little early to be hunting for winter storms… after all, winter’s official arrival is still several weeks away. However, given the patterns of the past 2 weeks, it does make you take a little closer notice of every storm pertubation that can be gleaned from the computer guidance.
