YES, there does appear to be a winter weather event possible late next week!
We have definitely turned to a colder airmass and that looks to stay. Real cold may take a bit longer, but by the end of the year, it could get super cold for a period.
We ended up being sunny today when the system that was looking to do something literally was eaten alive by the block in place that is filtering in the colder air. We will be only in the 40s for the foreseeable future and nighttime lows are trending colder!
Next Thursday shows as a huge question mark as there does appear to be at least the threat of wintry weather, but will it transform into a bigger winter storm?? Way too early to get too excited about it! I will do daily updates on that risk.
The longer-range looks colder than normal and it could trend super cold by the end of the year.
So, with potential snow and at least colder weather, I am certain you need to think about what to do with animals, snow blowers, etc.! I will start saying that more if we get some more confidence next week!
All for now! I will do a quick check in after noon model runs!
