Suchan Says: Great Stretch of Weather

A very pesky weather pattern has finally managed to completely break down and opens the door to some great weather moving forward.  The final piece to that difficult pattern we were in is moving into the eastern part of the country as drier air builds in with lots of sunshine in the days ahead.

The next few mornings will be cold and likely support some frost and spotty patches of fog but plan on each afternoon warming quickly under sunny skies!  Highs Thursday will easily reach well into the 40s and should hit the lower 50s in a few spots.

By Friday, temperatures are expected to top out in the lower to mid 50s for much of the area which will feel like it’s 60 after some of our recent weather!

The next system if you want to call it that scrapes by Saturday night into some of Sunday with scattered clouds and a slight chance of sprinkles or a lone shower.  We then get back into dry weather and unseasonably mild temperatures for much of next week.  We could actually use a break from precipitation too as we’re well ahead of schedule for the year.


2015 will finish above average on precipitation. As of December 2nd, we’re nearly 6 inches above normal for precip

Wondering if there are any signs or hope of winter weather down the road given the unseasonably mild pattern ready to lock in?  Well, there are definitely some signs of a pattern shift toward more seasonably cold December weather in the middle of the month along with a storm track shifting south too.  If in fact this materializes, we’d certainly stand a much better chance of seeing some winter weather and before Christmas, it could be interesting.  We’ll see 🙂
