Lots of sun, lower humidity, and cooler temps to start December 2019.

As we begin December, I just have one question: Where did 2019 go? Wow!

Fabulous weather for the next week. Seasonal to slightly above average temps with sunny to partly cloudy skies. Store it in a bottle for summer!

Looks like if you want cold weather in December you'll have to move.

You folks enjoy the beautiful SE Texas weather on this first day of Meteorological Winter. Winter Storm Warnings have just been issued here in the Smokey Mountains. Higher elevations along the Tennessee/North Carolina could see a foot of snowfall by the time it winds down tomorrow night. I did some preparations yesterday and stocked up on food just in case we get stuck on the mountain for a couple of days. If it plays out, I'll post pictures tomorrow... ;)

While it's just two days into meteorological winter, and under three weeks till true winter... don't look for any 'winter-like' conditions at least through the middle of the month. Pattern looks rather quiet with a +PNA, -EPO and somewhat of a neutral/- NAO. Those conditions keep the weather here in SETX mild/seasonal with no real big fluctuations.

If you're a cold weather lover, November certainly was a tease (as it was last year). It should go without saying, but winter forecasting is one of the more challenging seasons to forecast (IMO). Not just long term, but medium range as well. It can turn volatile in a hurry within a few days out. With that said, there is beginning to be some hints that the pattern will adjust to a more favorable pattern as we near the end of the year and flip to 2020... but take that with a grain of salt at this time.

Meanwhile, this type of pattern will work well in Steve's favor... :)
