December 30, 12:30 AM Weather Forecast Update

Here is a brief Long Ranger...

Now through the first half of January is an active storm track with multiple opportunities for a couple of ice/snow events here & rainfall events interspersed in an above normal precipitation pattern.

However, it does not look that cold.  It looks warmer than it even did last week for this period.  So, any snow that falls or ice that accumulates won't last.

There may be as many as 7 storm systems (counting the one Wednesday, the one Friday & the one next Wednesday......which leaves 4 left January 7-16) now to January 16, but a couple could still produce substantial ice/snow in the area.

The latter half of January looks quite mild with rain & t'storms at times.  We may be near record warmth a day or two like we were in December & then in the very warm November.

February, March & April all look warmer, wetter than normal & stormy with greater potential of severe weather.

February shows tendency for above normal rainfall & flooding risk & below normal snowfall.  However, risk of icing event or ice storm is higher.

It still looks like an earlier than normal onset of spring & the growing season with an early start to severe weather season (some severe still looks to evolve as early as January to February).

Part of May looks wet, part of it dry, but it looks warmer than normal with an earlier onset of summer heat & humidity.

I am still focused in on the likelihood of widespread drought & heat in Summer 2021 with our first 100 temps since 2012.

Also, there is higher risk of a significant Serial "Ring of Fire" Derecho.

September looks warmer & drier than normal with continuation of drought (unless tropical systems in an active tropical season can make it in here).  I am more inclined to focus the greatest tropical risk along the East Coast.

October looks wetter & cooler than normal with improvement in the drought conditions from the above normal rainfall.
