We’ve finally hit a pattern this week. Barring a few flakes up north, clear air is winning.

Temps have been pleasant today. We’ve been above normal thanks to the southwest winds today but that’s changing as we speak. High pressure will settle over us for the majority of this week. It will usher in the same frigid air that’s is gripping the Midwest.

However, no low-pressure systems seem to be colliding with the cold air. Therefore, snow will be tough to produce this week.

Actually, we are behind in terms of snowfall! We should have 4.3 inches of snow on average by this point in the year. We’re at one inch.

Now, looking ahead to the all important New Year’s Eve forecast: cold is the word to usher in 2015. A cold north wind will drive temps in the 20s down to feeling like the low teens. Expect even colder air in the suburbs.
