Warmer weather in the extended outlook

Posted: Updated:

Although November temperatures have trended colder than average, the forecast for the first week of December appears to be anything but winter-like.

The Climate Prediction Center is calling for a 50 percent chance of above normal temperatures in the tri-state from December 3rd through 9th.  There's also a 33 percent chance southern Indiana and souther Illinois will see wetter than normal conditions.

Over the last 30 years of climate data, the first date for measurable snowfall in the tri-state is around December 10th with our first 1 inch or better snow coming around December 26th.

Last winter we only recorded one-half inch of snow all season, a record low amount.
