Snow by Christmas?

What a dreary day!  I went down to Cincinnati last night to spend the evening with a few friends.  Had lots of fun, but the car ride down and back was just nasty.   Downtown looked more like Gotham than Cincinnati last night.
Many people are hoping for a White Christmas(especially after hardly having ANY snow all last winter) and we are getting close enough to the holiday that the models are forecasting just before Ole St. Nick arrives.  Forecasting over two weeks out can come with a great degree of uncertainty, but the models have agreed, for the most part, that it will be cold for days leading up to Christmas.  As a matter of fact it has snow a few days before Christmas.  However if you remember my bowling analogy... forecasting one day out is like half the length of a bowling lane.  Two days is a full lane's length... so 14 days out is like 7 lanes back to back... imagine trying to hit a strike from that far back!!!  I will keep you posted as we get closer, but as long as we stay cold enough, I think it is very possible to have some snow by Christmas.

Round one of the steady rain has left the area pretty damp and we stay that way for the rest of the weekend.  Patchy fog as well will be sticking around with the mild temperatures.  Round two of the steady rain returns later Sunday into early Monday with an additional 1-2" of rain expected.  The heaviest of the rain will be across the Southern portions of Ohio.  Temperatures peak early and then fall throughout the day thanks to a cold front pushing through.  We dry out for several cold days so you can trade your umbrella for the coat.  Have a good one!

  1. Good morning Andrew, hope all is well with you, wife and Buckeye ( I think that is your dogs name). Everything is about the same in this area. In case I don't get back around again for a while, Merry Christmas.

    1. Thanks! I hope you and Abe have a Merry Christmas too! You got Buckeye correct. We are well and staying out of trouble. Tell everyone we said hello!
