We have a few showers (mostly sprinkles) coming through. Most rainfall amounts in Wisconsin were near or less than 1/10th inch. The European model gives G.R. 1/10th inch or rain, the other models a little less. The Euro. would give us upper 50s Thursday with falling temps. on Friday and temperatures most of Saturday in the low-mid 30s, with maybe 1/2 to 1″ of lake-effect snow. The GFS has a high of 36 Saturday and 40 on Sunday. The models give us a little rain or mix with temps. only in the 30s on Monday. The GFS might have 2-3″ of snow for G.R. long about next Thurs., and the overall pattern continues to look cool, with some rather chilly air across the northern U.S. from Montana to New England.
UPDATE: Check out the CFS model for Dec. 22-27. Hope you’re dreaming of a White Christmas. That’s a long ways out, I know…but that’s a chilly forecast, with a bog slug of cold in the SE U.S.
