The Weekend Felt Like A Winter Wonder Land!

Well, as you all know I love the cold weather and we have seen nightly lows the past few night dropping into the low 30s. This has been great! However I'M in the mood for snow right about now! I'M really always in the mood fro snow however this past weekend I really got in the mood. Why is that? You ask. Well, Last Sunday as you all know was Football Sunday. I turned on the Titans game and take a look at what I found!That's right! New England had snow on the field!! It just don't get any better then this. It made it feel like winter had come early. And with our below average temperatures we have seen lately I'M sure some of you already feel it has. :) I will say and I'M sorry for all NE fans, But I don't like that team one bit. They killed the titans 59 to 0. They were up 45 to nothing in halftime. Now if that was me I would have taken out Tom Brady who is there starter QB and I would have put in the back up. Being up 45 to nothing in the 3rd quarter they were not going to lose. But NO they kept Tom in starting the 3rd and totally killed the titans. I don't feels that's right. They should at least leave the titans with some pride. It was such a blow out that they switched to a different game. That's bad! The score you see below was only the first of many.Now I did not pop in to only talk about football lol. This is a weather blog! But as you can tell Football in my favorite sport. Even more on Thanksgiving in snow! Ha Ha :) So I have been talking about the models showing a slight warm up this week. Has that held true? Well, at this point and time I can say we are looking for some middle to upper 60s this week starting tomorrow / Tuesday. Believe it or not after running around 15 to 17 degrees below average all month we will be right around average tomorrow. Yes, we are expected to see highs around 64°F degrees which is only one degrees below average give or take. Average for this time of year is around 65°F degrees. Here is the Temperature Chart below.Tuesday we are looking for Partly cloudy skies over the WLFI viewing area. The more north you go the more clouds you will likely see. We will look for highs in the low to middle 60s and lows in the low to middle 40s around 44°F degrees. Winds will be between 15 and 25 mph with a few gusts to 27 mph possible in open areas.

.

.

Wednesday we will see much of the same with more Partly cloudy skies over the WLFI viewing area. More clouds will move into the area later on Wednesday night into Thursday. Highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s possible with lows in the middle to upper 40s closer to 48°F degrees. Winds will again be between 15 and 25 mph.

.

.

As for the next chance at rainfall, I don't see any rain in the forecast until closer to Thursday. So for the next few days we will see mild partly cloudy skies. The reason for the rain moving in on Thursday will be do to a stationary front that is just sitting over the Iowa area ta this time. This slow moving front will finally start to make a move on us by closer to Thursday. Currently not looking like a total wash out however as the front continues to develop and models become more clear I will have more info and expected rainfall totals posted.

.

.

And last but not least "How long will the mild temperatures last?" Well, At this time I look for a good four days of mild temperatures which will bring the cool 50s back by this weekend. Warm weather lovers get out and enjoy while you can.

Yeah I was shocked to see the snow on that game. I LOVE watching snow games.( I normally only watch the Colts play )

TN blamed their loss on the snow. I am sure that it is really is hard to play in the slippery stuff though.

Justin said...

I'M sure it is! And that could have played a big part. However TN is 0-6 so they are not looking great anyway! :)

I agree about the colts! This has been the longest off week ever. Ha Ha.

Yeah. I missed not watching a game this week so I had to resort to watching other teams. :) I do love checking out the retro uniforms though.

I sent you a pic in email by the way!

Don't forget to check out the meteor shower tonight!
