Today marks the point of half way through meteorlogical winter! Its starts December first and lasts through February. With temperatures reaching the mid 30s for some of us today, and plently of sun, it even felt a little like spring. Good news is temepratures will be even warmer on Satuday afternoon. A warm front will move in from the southwest late Friday and into early Saturday. Temperatures will warm into the mid and upper 30s, with some hitting the 40 degree mark. Unfortunately, the warmth doesn't last long. A cold front swings through Saturday evening and that will drop temperatures into the lower 30s for Sunday, and it will also bring a slight chance of snow.
But comparing this winter to last winter through this time, we've had more warm days this winter. We haven't seen any negative high temperatures yet, like we did last year. We also haven't spent as many days in the 20's, and saw more 30's this winter. Looking ahead to the one and three month outlook, we currenly have a 50/50 shot of seeing either above or below temperatures.
