Our mild spell ends as things become a bit wintry

How many times have we talked about how mild and pleasant this fall season has been, especially during this unusually mild November? Probably ten times on this blog alone and about 100 times on the air! A major shift is occurring right now, however, that will not only bring an end to the mild weather for good, but it looks […]

It took nearly five whole days to happen, but our first seasonably cool air mass of November has settled in just in time for the weekend.

Once again our weather has swung to the milder side of the pendulum and things are bright, quiet, and balmy for November standards.

Much Needed Rain Has Fallen, Some More May Fall Before November

The large, nasty storm system that has been responsible for producing the coldest wind chill values of the season and first dusting of snow so far has also brought beneficial rainfall to the entire region. This certainly is the silver lining as the deficits coming into the two-day rainfall event were running from one to two […]

A slow cool down is ahead, but with a little much needed rain

With very few exceptions, this month of October has been spectacular. From the long-lasting fall foliage in the trees to the later than usual first frost, conditions have been fantastic for going outside and enjoying time with Mother Nature. Only four times in the first 20 days of the month have we failed to reach 60 degrees…and […]

The chill of autumn is back

After a relatively short spell of unseasonably warm, summer-like weather over the weekend, cooler, more October-like weather is back.
