Fired up the fireplace yet?

Gotta love fall.  I was leaving work and could smell a nearby wood burner or fireplace.  I LOVE that smell.  It reminds you that fall is in the air.  This photo is from Brittney, a viewer, having a little fire to warm the house.
Keep the wood handy.  We are going to have a BIG cold blast of air next week.  The Climate Prediction Center released these forecasts today, for their 6 to 10 day outlook.  I totally agree with their forecast on this.  Much colder and slightly above normal precipitation, which is what we have been seeing all October.  We have already doubled the normal rainfall for the month at Port Columbus
The models are still staying cold for next week.  They vary a little with each update.  The 18z GFS model above shows a nice bit of October snow for next Thursday.  NONE OF IT WILL STICK THOUGH.  So don't get your hopes up too high if you are a snow-lover.  I think you will be plenty happy this winter.  The Euro models are bringing in the snow a little earlier and actually pushing the clipper further South.  (Remember, they tend to pull more North when they actually swing down from Canada). 

The rain today has cleared out and a little fog overnight in spots.  We see more sun later Friday after some of the morning fog.  More showers midday Saturday and then another cold front Monday night into Tuesday.  I will be back again with an update... until then, have a good one!

  1. Good work! I always like to leave comments Ventless fireplaces whenever I see something unusual or impressive. I think we must appreciate those who do something especial. Keep it up, thanks
