It’s Cold Enough… Where’s the Snow?

Not in Connecticut. And it’s not coming anytime soon. A few days ago Friday and Monday looked good for at least some snow but today it appears that the threat for snow is quite low.

A weak Alberta Clipper is going to go through an atmospheric meat grinder on Friday with little lift and moisture left for snow production. Some flurries or sprinkles are likely but that’s about it.

A storm Sunday into Monday that showed some promise now appears poised to cut into the Great Lakes. A -NAO block is going to shift too far east to keep the storm track suppressed and a strong polar vortex in south central Canada is going to phase with the storm and yank the thing inland. Bottom line is rain. Maybe a lot of rain.

Even northern New England may not be immune from the rain come Sunday. Hopefully this storm will trend a little bit further east to spare the mountains that have done so well from upslope snow this week a monster rainstorm.

  1. Keep the snow up north were it belongs. No snow for the Tri-State area is fine with us. December is half over. Two more months and the nice weather is right back! I love it!

  2. Looks like the first 15 days of December will turn out snow free barring some miracle following the Sunday/Monday storm. Some signs of something brewing the week before Christmas it’s too early to tell. At least it will stay cold up north so plenty of snow to be made at the ski resorts after an unpleasant rain storm.
