***Freezing Rain Advisory in effect for the entire area from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. Sunday***
Thanks for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! Make sure to bookmark our blog, it is back and better than ever! I’m going to do a quick entry now and then update things later Saturday evening. And a quick preview into next week…I will be discussing a very fascinating theory that I learned about while in Kansas City…the LRC. This is a theory about long range weather forecasting and trends.
Good news arrived today for those that were already tired of the cold as milder temperatures returned just in time for the weekend. Most lake shore locations made it above 32 degrees on Saturday. The milder air and a weak disturbance moving our way will set the stage for some light precipitation. Notice I didn’t say snow…because this could be in the form of light snow or flurries, patchy freezing rain or drizzle, or even some light rain or sprinkles.
The model data from this morning continued to support our forecast that we made on Friday evening when I discussed the chances of a mixed bag of precipitation on News 12 at 5, 6, & 10pm. Here is the precipitation type forecast from the NAM computer model from midnight to 6am Sunday. This shows the wide range of possibilities across the region. The one piece of good news is that the precip. should be light, but if there is any freezing drizzle it doesn’t take much to make the roads slippery.
Make sure to watch Weather Watch 12 Saturday at 5, 6, 6:30, and 10pm for the latest and beginning Sunday at 5am. If you ever have any weather questions please post them in the comments section. We love the weather and also sharing our knowledge with you!
