One of the blogs I follow is the Cliff Mass Weather Blog. Last Friday his post was titled, Climatologically, The Worst Is Over. I got excited after reading the first couple paragraphs that maybe the nightmare winter will not be a reality. Please know that I don't understand many of the charts that he uses to explain the weather, but things looked good until I got to this part.
If we looked at surface winds, a similar story would be evident..the end of November is ground zero for rainy, stormy weather and the situation improves in December.
And certainly the first week of December this year is going to seem like a walk in the park compared to what we had at the end of November.
But the worst is yet to come for one parameter...snow. As shown below for Sea-Tac, January is the snowiest month in our area.
Just what I didn't want to know, especially since I think that February is historically as bad as January. See what I mean about titles being misleading.
