Late Sunday PM December 4th Update – Eyeing an Arctic Blast and Snow Chances on the Way

Good late Sunday evening, everyone. In case you couldn’t catch us on the television side, the week ahead is going to be a bit of an interesting one. We started it with some early morning rain that moved out well before 9 AM. Thanks to the sun, we did manage to go into the upper 40s to near 50° this afternoon. With some clearing skies that took place this evening, the rain we got and a light breeze, we’ll have to deal with some patchy fog to start our Monday morning out.On the plus side, we’re keeping things quiet and dry on the radar below…

Looking at what we have on our plate below, we still have an upper level low sitting near the Texas/Mexico border. Even though that stays south of us as it eventually kicks east, it’ll send another disturbance our way for late Monday…

Once that low kicks out, we will turn our attention to our northwest. Our next cold front is still on the way and it will really cool us down when it swings through Tuesday. Couple that cold punch with another wave that will sneak in right behind it, we’re still looking at snow chances by midweek…

Before that front gets here, we’ll stay quiet for most of your Monday. After the morning fog tapers off, we’ll go from partly sunny back to mostly cloudy by the end of the afternoon. There could be a stray shower or two late Monday afternoon, but we’ll hold off on better chances Monday evening. Highs should go to about 52°…

Another impulse from the southwest will pass through and bring rain chances back in for Monday evening and into Tuesday morning. For Tuesday morning, we should be getting the rain chances out before you head to work and school as that cold front sweeps through…

Don’t expect much of a warm up for your Tuesday. We’ll keep quiet for Tuesday, but it will be a cool one. After we start in the middle 30s Tuesday morning, we’ll have highs only top out around 43. Behind that cold front, another wave will shoot out of the Rockies and head our way for Wednesday. With that wave picking up some moisture along the way, we’re still looking at a shot for some accumulating snow for Wednesday…

If the forecast holds, we’ll see snow start to pick up Wednesday morning before it wants to clear out of the area Wednesday night. With the way things look, I have laid out how our snow situation could look by Wednesday night…

From Bartlesville to Wyandotte to Goodman to Aurora south, let’s say you could pick up half an inch of snow or less. For everyone else, I think half an inch to 1.5″ is in the realm of possiblity. If some moderate pockets of snow develop, there could even be a few spots that may see 2″. I want to stress, though, that the map will undergo some tweaking as we get closer to Wednesday. We will, of course, keep an eye on the setup and adjust as necessary. After that wave passes, we’re just cold for Thursday and Friday. Lows will start in the teens with 26° for Thursday and 33° for Friday. We should be able to go back into the 40s Saturday and next Sunday with another shot for rain by the end of next weekend. As usual, we have Doug’s long-range forecast below. If you want his thoughts about the pattern and how the next few months look, head on over to headypattern.com

Have a good night and a great Monday!

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM

Next Monday – Saturday:  Staying cold through the week with rain chances on Wednesday with some snow chances on Thursday.

December 18th-Christmas Eve:  Mild temperatures return this week with rain chances by Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

December 26th-New Years Eve:  A mild start to the week with rain and snow chances on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Cold and dry the rest of the week.
