Well, I hope you enjoyed our day in the sun on Wednesday, because it looks like it may be quite some time before we have another day like that. Our weather has already become rather gray and it looks like it’s only going to get grayer as we move along this week and this weekend thanks […]

The mild spell that melted our snow and almost allowed us to forget what month it is has come to an end and now December is reasserting itself across the Midwest. The storm system that brought the massive temperatures changes also brought a little freezing rain and snow to the area, but not nearly enough to […]

Mild weather persists for us

Thanks to a relatively mild start to the day today that has featured morning high temperatures in the 30s across the area, we’ve managed to reach our fifth consecutive 30 degree day, something we haven’t done in about a month. Even though colder air is rushing into the area on the heels of the departing storm system that […]

At last the frigid month of November 2014 is behind us and we can finally flip the calendar to find that…the weather has gotten even colder to start December. Fear not, however, as there are promising signs that things may be getting warmer for us in the future and not just for a day or two. […]

Colder air has arrived, even colder air is expected next week

The well-advertised cool down is underway and it looks like we’ll be going from typical early November chilly weather to downright frigid, December-like weather within the next week.

A cold start to the weekend, but a slight warm up is ahead

Having the coldest air mass of the season descend upon the region on Halloween certainly has been less than ideal timing for us, but at least it appears to be a short-lived cold snap. High temperatures for Halloween in most spots locally are running about 10 to 12 degrees colder than the seasonal norm with upper 30s […]

A cool spell with frost concerns this week; a big warm up possible next week

We’re finally getting a nice break from strong, gusty winds after about a solid week of 25 to 35 mile per hour gusts today, but the trade-off is a drop in temperatures. High pressure is settling in from Canada on the heels of the disturbance that brought clouds and a few light rain showers to much […]

A wet start to October, then a massive weekend cool down

We’re off to a gray and damp start to the month of October and from the look of things, quiet, mild, peaceful weather will be absent from our weather picture for quite a while. The first part of a one-two punch is moving through the region today, producing today’s rain and thick cloud cover. We’ll […]

Fall officially begins on a mild note; plenty of warmth ahead

We’ve already experienced our share of fall weather over the past month or so with a couple of spells of 50 and 60 degree highs and even a couple of rounds of frost in the area, but ironically as we reach the autumnal equinox, the official start to fall, our weather seems to be actually […]
