December Winter Cancel

After a much below normal temperatures for the start of December, we can now look forward to warmer temperatures. You can seen an -8 to -15 degree below normal average for the first 8 days of the month.
The details were never very good in the medium and long range with the forecast models but the pattern was reasonable accurate. If we look ahead at the pattern through Christmas, we should expect more seasonal temperatures if not slightly above. There is no trough digging deep from Canada and no Arctic air mass over most of the eastern US.

Also missing are any potential snow makers. Even the back end snow from the current system is now a (painful) memory. I see more potential for thunderstorms/severe weather in Indiana now than snow for the next 10 to 14 days.
