Weather Whiplash: severe storms to snow?

20 December, 2017, 01:30 | Author: Edward Snyder
  • Coldest temperatures of the season expected near Christmas

"Much colder air will move over the region following the storm system this weekend, lasting into next week with sub-zero wind chills expected". But on the positive side, temperatures typically warm by the end of February into the low 30s with overnight lows in the teens.

The storm, if it arrives as forecast, will come after Owatonna got its own taste of bitter December weather previous year. Last year, temperatures peaked at 50 degrees on Christmas Day, and Christmas 2016 came one degree shy of a tie for record warmth, reaching 71 degrees. As in most cases, we can not see definitively where a single storm may strike, so be alert.

Baltimore has an outside chance of having a white Christmas, but any snow will require a quicker-than-expected intrusion of cold air.

So, if you're dreaming of a white Christmas like Bing Crosby was, you'll have to keep dreaming, and hopefully be able to at least accept the more likely reality of a soggy Christmas (which certainly does NOT have as good of a ring to it). And after some morning sprinkles passed through and clouds finally broke for some sunshine, temperatures took off this afternoon and shot up well into the 50s.




The Met Office said more information on Christmas Day's weather would be known later this week, as things stand there is no sign of wintry weather for Dundee. So, monitor forecast closely for potential weather impacts, and stay tuned to our updated forecasts as the holiday weekend approaches! The last time central OH had a white Christmas was in 2010. Expect plenty of clouds Saturday and Sunday with some occasional rain, although both days are not likely to be washouts at this point.

BUT... We've now gone a week without any snow reinforcements, and in fact, we have even had a few light rain events.

In any given year, Baltimore has about a 10 percent chance of seeing snow fall on Christmas Day, according to the weather service.

Christmas Day is now just one week away. Of course, those are the two most important days for holiday travel, so pay attention to future forecasts as the weather picture hopefully comes into better focus.
