First off, a word of appreciation to my financial contributors, and especially my Patreon monthly donors who are the foundation for my yearly budget. While I do the work, you folks keep me working by helping me pay the bills for the website, data sources, and other materials I need to do this as best as possible. I am forever grateful for this opportunity to give back to the area in a unique way. Thank you!
Pattern outlook through Sunday
The brutal cold stays bottled up in the north for now. The popular question I have been asked over the past couple of days is, "Is that going to happen again?!". I am not into meteorological tarot cards and 8-ball fortune tellers, so I can't say no. The stratospheric polar vortex will unload at some point somewhere. That is a game of Russian roulette as far as who gets it, and just how deep a cold it may deliver. The longer it takes, the less impactful as the hemisphere gradually warms.
The pattern is a couple weak systems Tuesday night and then again Thursday night. We'll go into a more zonal flow next week and that keeps the action to the south to start.
Hit or miss snow showers Tuesday night,
