The month of December looks like a cold one in the Midwest and East.
Forecasting several weeks in advance is never easy but it appears much of the East Coast is headed for a colder than normal December. The jet stream is making advances to the south and that should allow colder air to push deeper into the Southeast. Long-range models have been hinting for the last week that the first two to three weeks of December could be well below the long-term averages. A coastal storm track is also likely to develop as the jet stream pushes into the Southeast. All in all it looks like a stormy December could be in play this year. Of course, some of us who have already seen snowflakes this year would like to see some accumulation. A southerly displaced active storm track certainly makes it possible that snow could fall again during December. Whether it happens this year is something we won't know until the end of next month.
