Good morning bloggers,
The Winter Forecast will be on 41 Action News at 6 PM tonight. And, I will have an extensive in-depth blog that will be posted here around the same time. I am almost done with it now.
There is a cold front showing up for Thanksgiving Day and we are trying figure out the timing of this front. The Plaza Lighting special is on 41 Action News and around 30,000 people will be heading outside to watch this show and we are broadcasting it live from 6 to 7 PM Thursday night. The weather forecast has included a pretty nice day for Thanksgiving and this front that is now a concern doesn’t look very strong, but it may help produce a little bit of rain with the wind shift arriving during the day.
And, the weather pattern is showing strong indications of a colder change for next week. The Arctic Oscillation may go into the negative phase during the next two weeks, as you can see below. I will discuss the Arctic Oscillation and what it may mean for this weather pattern in the winter forecast later today. If it does go deeper into the negative it would indicate some blocking of the upper level flow and a good chance of cold air surging south into the United States.
Have a great Monday and check back in later this afternoon for the Winter Weather Forecast blog, and our winter weather forecast live on 41 Action News at 6 PM.
