Some of you laughed at me when I sent this tweet out on Tuesday, November 27th.
I know the WeatherNinja did. While you may not admit it, most of you turned it on in your car, your home, or both. I did!
Look at these high temperatures for the first 4 days of this month.
December 1st... 76 degrees
December 2nd... 74 degrees
December 3rd... 77 degrees
December 4th... 72 degrees
THAT'S ALMOST 19 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE... AMAZING!
But you know the rule, "For every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction." While I don't think this number will go to average as fast as it went above average, we will trend much cooler next week as a strong system will deliver a dose of December reality. While not SUPER cold, temperatures will go to average or even a little below average as we go into next week. By the way, mid 50s are where we should be for afternoon highs. Mother nature has a great way to balance herself out doesn't she?
The computer models really have been all over the place as to how this transition will occur in terms of timing, strength, and what weather to expect. It has gone from heavy rain and severe storms to a lighter rain to... etc, etc. etc.
Anyway, I thought I would give you an update as to what the 2 main long range computer models indicate as of Wednesday. We'll look at the GFS and the European. Just know like I said in the previous post... THIS CAN AND WILL CHANGE AT LEAST 10,000,000 MORE TIMES. ( a little sarcasm, it's more like 100,000,000,000 times. Catch my drift? )
|Now the GFS! Saturday at 6 PM it shows the front right through Arkansas and not moving. This will produce areas of rain and rumbles of thunder.|
So to sum it up. It still looks like a good round of rain and storms. First areas of rain to start the weekend, then with the front Sunday followed by much colder and windy weather Monday. The timing on both models is faster compared to previous days.
So here is what I have to say, as we go into next week, flip the switch from A/C to heat!
